IoD launches search for Black Country and Staffordshire chair

The IoD is seeking a new chair to become the voice of directors in the Black Country and Staffordshire.

The role is being vacated by financial consultant and former banker Ian Priest, who is stepping down in May upon completion of his term.

The successful candidate will work alongside a branch team to help directors build back better from the pandemic. The IoD creates connections between members, influences decision-makers and delivers professional development.

The Institute has secured vital support for directors during the Covid-19 pandemic, including financial assistance for wage bills and changes to insolvency rules.

The voluntary position is open to all members who live or work in the Black Country or Staffordshire.

Brian Hall, chair, IoD West Midlands, said: “Ian will be a hard act to follow. He has done a sterling job on behalf of members and has been integral to the success of our annual Director of the Year Awards.

“We believe that better directors build a better world. The successful candidate will be a figurehead for local directors, enabling them to get the maximum benefit from their membership and lead the economic recovery. They will also be a passionate ambassador for this dynamic and diverse area.”

The Black Country and Staffordshire branch was created in 2020 as part of a geographical restructure of IoD West Midlands, which removed outdated boundaries. New branches were also created for Greater Birmingham and Worcester and the Marches. The West Midlands’ fourth branch is IoD Coventry and Warwickshire.

Interested candidates should send their CV and covering letter to sophie.breeden@iod.com by 23rd May 2021.
