Scardino joins IAG board

Marjorie Scardino, the former boss of publishing group Pearson, is joining the board of British Airways parent IAG next month. Scardino, who stepped down from Pearson at the start of the year, will replace John Snow as a non-executive director. The airline has recently shaken up its board, two years after Iberia and BA merged. The company more than doubled its profits in the third quarter as restructuring measures began to pay off.
