Position Last Year 81 

Sir Chris Gent is a non-executive director of Ferrari S.p.A., not to mention the huge involvement of Vodafone in the sport, all under his reign. After retiring from Vodafone in July 2003, he was awarded the honorary title of Company’s President for Life on his departure as a mark of his achievement in developing the company, until his resignation from that position in March 2006. The title carried no salary, nor any advisory responsibilities, but was a symbolic link to the business that few former chief executives are allowed to retain. He is now Chairman of GlaxoSmithKline, a British multinational pharmaceutical company, joining in June 2004 and becoming Chairman on 1 January 2005.
