The Annual Return  available from Companies House WebCHeck or the company website provides a wealth of information on management, including their biographies and their compensation.

Use a U.K News Search and social media to find out more about management’s current activities. When doing news searches, make sure to go to local newspapers and media outlets in the city in which the firm is located. Some of this information many not show up on a national search.

Firms and top management are increasingly using a variety of social media and it is becoming an important research tool. LinkedIn is a popular business social-networking site. You need to be a member to search (membership is free) and you can search by companies as well as individuals. Facebook is very popular with individuals and firms, and can be a great source of information.
