Are you disqualified from being a director of a company and how is the new company to be constituted as to directors and shareholders?
There is no legal restriction on you being an employee of the company and using your contacts to generate business. If you are not disqualified then you could be a director too.
If you had a contract with your previous company then you should check to make sure that there are no covenants restricting you competing with them or poaching their cu. If there are then they will only be binding upon you in so far as they protect a legitimate business interest.
