IoD launches search for new West Midlands Chair
The Institute of Directors (IoD) is recruiting a new Regional Chair to lead its West Midlands region, with Brian Hall standing down after completing his three year term.
The successful candidate will be the voice for business in the region, working alongside a branch team to support West Midlands directors, drive a calendar of events and provide professional development training with the aim of growing membership.
The chair will lead members across four branches: Greater Birmingham, Worcester and the Marches, Black Country and Staffordshire and Coventry and Warwickshire.
Brian Hall, outgoing IoD West Midlands regional chair, said: “It has been a pleasure to serve our members in the West Midlands. The past three years have been challenging as our members have navigated Brexit and the pandemic but we now look to brighter times ahead.
“The IoD can look ahead with confidence, having completed a regional restructure that removed outdated boundaries and created a new Greater Birmingham branch that aligns our presence with that of the Metro Mayor and devolved powers.
“This is an exciting opportunity for a new Chair and I would encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to come forward as we strive to reflect the diversity of directorial talent in our region.”
Natalie Sykes, Head of English Branches, IoD, said: “I’d like to thank Brian for his excellent work as Chair and his contribution to the IoD Council. We are looking for a dynamic and well-connected individual to take on this influential role.
“They will join at an exciting time for the IoD, with a renewed focus on serving our members. We passionately believe that better directors build a better world. The successful candidate will support our members to lead the economic recovery by providing them with opportunities to connect, learn and influence decision makers.”
The voluntary position has a three-year term and is open to all IoD members who reside or work in the West Midlands. Interested candidates should send their CV and covering letter to [email protected] by Sunday 9th May.
Thank you Brian!
