2 directors per organisation is not a good idea. 1 director is per
organisation is more than enough.

Since the CEO will always come from a certain sub-region and some country,
having 2 directors  per sub region would always make that region have 3
directors at any given time.

Since the CEO is full time director, his country should perhaps only get 1
director at any given time to represent the sub region.

The CEO country should never have someone run to represent the non
geographic since if elected, the board would end up with 3 directors from a
single country that is CEO, subregion and non geo.

and  region. However, the CEO being full director, with 2 directors per
country, we may end up with 3 directors  from  one country. As board quorum
is 5 directors, 2 countries can capture the organisation. On the other hand
, excluding CEO, 1 per organisation, 1 per country  and 2 per region will
avoid such scenario.

Yes in support of this less the organisation get captured.

1 per country,  1 per organisatioand 2 per region is rational and also
promotes diversity representation.
