IoD appoints Police and Crime Commissioner to Hertfordshire team
The Institute of Directors has boosted its presence in Hertfordshire with the appointment of David Lloyd.
David has been Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire since 2012. His focus is on delivering effective and efficient policing, supporting victims, promoting partnership working and delivering on the public’s priorities.
Prior to his election, David was the deputy leader of Hertfordshire County Council. He is a graduate of the Leadership Centre’s Future Vision programme and is studying a postgraduate degree in Criminology at the University of Cambridge.
A member of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners since its foundation, he is a board member and former chair of the organisation. Outside politics his career has been in banking and personal finance.
The IoD supports its members to become better directors. As a branch ambassador, David will drive greater connectivity with members, support learning and development and ensure that IoD national policy reflects the needs of local directors.
David said: “I am excited to join the IoD team in Hertfordshire and look forward to working with colleagues to build a programme of activity that supports directors and enhances our local economy. I will also be exploring increased co-operation between the worlds of business, crime prevention and policing.”
The IoD appointed James Keeling, chief financial officer at Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst, as chair of its Hertfordshire branch in January 2022.
James said: “I am delighted to welcome David to our team. His experience across the worlds of policing and politics will be invaluable. We are living through uncertain economic times but the strength of Hertfordshire’s business community remains undimmed and our members will be at the forefront as we embrace post-pandemic opportunities.”
