CBI remembers Dame Helen Alexander DBE

CBI President, Paul Drechsler CBE, said:

“Dame Helen was a brilliant leader who was admired by everyone she worked with and widely respected throughout the worlds of business and politics.  She was the first female CBI President, passionate in her support of British business and determined in making the case for diversity.  

“More than that, people will remember Helen for being a great listener with a thoughtful sense of humour.  She will be greatly missed by me and by everyone who knew her, both in the UK and beyond.  My thoughts and the thoughts of those past and present at the CBI will be with her family at this very sad time.”

Dame Helen was President of the CBI between 2009 – 2011.
