IoD West Midlands is delighted to welcome Wesleyan, the specialist financial services mutual, as its latest patron.
Established in Birmingham in 1841, Wesleyan provides financial products and services for medical and dental professionals, teachers and lawyers.
The company established the Wesleyan Foundation in 2017 to support projects that are important to its customers and communities in which they live and work. A year later, the foundation had awarded a total of more than £1million to good causes in the form of more than 200 separate grants to charities, community groups and social enterprisers across the UK,
Strong advocates of corporate governance and diversity, Wesleyan has had a long relationship with the IoD, and a number of its senior management team have successfully completed the Chartered Director programme.
Group Chief Executive Dr Craig Errington, CDir, won the IoD’s National Director of the Year award in 2011. He said: “Strengthening our relationship with the IoD is important to the senior team at Wesleyan, given the great work they do in supporting business leaders.
“We are delighted to have become Patrons and look forward to working with the team in what will be another interesting year.”
