The former chairman and chief executive of Wrightbus, Mark Nodder, is to remain on the board of Invest NI for another three years, despite retiring from the Ballymena busmaker last week.

The Department for the Economy (DfE) confirmed yesterday that it has re-appointed the economic development agency's board for a second term from this month.

It includes tax specialist Deborah Lange, former Caterpillar vice-president Mark Sweeney, tech entrepreneur Padraig Canavan, Upstream founder Judith Totten and Brian Baird, who sits on the board of a number of product companies. Each is entitled to £12,240 per year.

DfE is currently recruiting a new board chairman to replace Mark Ennis, who steps down in June, while a new chief executive is to be found to replace Alastair Hamilton.
