EIGHT members of our staff have this month (May, 2015) joined the Institute of Directors (IOD).
We have just become a part of the UK’s largest and oldest membership organisation for directors and professional leaders.
Keith Brock, our Managing Director, explained: “ The institute is acknowledged world-wide as a leader in business and corporate governance. We feel joining the IOD will benefit our business greatly. We will be able to gain advice, guidance and support from the IOD, which has more than 100 years of business experience.
“As well as this we will be able to meet and network with some of the 34,500 members across the UK. As members we’ll be able to learn from others and gain valuable information to progress our business further.
“I have joined the organisation along with our Operations Director, Chris Wiseman, Nissan Franchise Director, Dale Richardson, Group Fleet Manager, Andy Provis and Business Specialist Dealers, Kate Hancock, Darren Wesson, Helen Walker and Simon Richardson.
“The IOD is a respected and influential body and we are excited to be a part of the institute.”
The IOD aims to support members as they grow and develop their organisations. Benefits included as part of the annual membership fee cover resources such as business information, advice and research, access to professional one-to-one advice, places to meet and do business, and the chance to network across the UK both on and offline.
Robert Lloyd Griffiths OBE, Director – Wales at the Institute of Directors, said: “We’re delighted that such a prestigious car dealership has decided to join the IOD. We look forward to building on our relationship in the coming years.”
