Directors in a company are appointed by the shareholder/owners to manage the affairs of the company. The company being an artificial entity requires a natural person to carry out the business activities and all other day-to-day affairs, so directors are appointed in order to manage the activities of companies accordingly. Board of Director are the main reasons behind the success and profitability of the business.
The initial director (known as First Directors) are appointed by the company at the time of incorporation through Articles of Association (AOA) and thereafter additional directors can be appointed by the company at any point of time as per the requirements by the shareholders. AOA of the company shall have the provisions governing addition or removal of directors.
