West Midlands branches

The regional head office is located at the IoD West Midlands Hub in the Library of Birmingham. It is led by our Regional Director Calum Nisbet, who is ably supported by Sue Hurrell.

The West Midlands region includes Birmingham, the Black Country, Shropshire, Staffordshire and parts of Derbyshire. It encompasses key towns and cities such as Wolverhampton, Dudley, Telford, Stoke, Shrewsbury and Stafford. 

Within IoD West Midlands we are well supported by our two chairs, who help to ensure that we reach all our members across the region. Ian Priest is responsible for the Black Country area, while Richard Biseker looks after Staffordshire and Shropshire.

About Coventry and Warwickshire branch

IoD West Midlands, led by chair David Trevis-Smith, is looking for members from the Coventry and Warwickshire area to join the local branch committee.

We are very active in the area and work hard to provide a regular programme of member events and activities. We are in need of fresh member input in order that the voice of local directors is heard and the needs of the region prioritised.
