The number of directors and the identity of the first directors of a company are to be specifically included in the company’s Memorandum of Association.  Subsequent directors are appointed by ordinary resolutions at general meetings.  Directors may either resign or be removed or not have their terms renewed.  A director is removed by an ordinary resolution taken at a general meeting of the company.
