IoD launches search for the South’s Directors of the Year

News Posted 18/11/22
Entries are now open for the Institute of Directors (IoD) Director of the Year Awards 2023, with categories recognising excellence in areas including diversity, innovation and sustainability.

This year’s categories are:

  • SME (up to £50 million turnover)
  • Innovation
  • Young
  • Family
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Third and Public Sector
  • Non-executive
  • Sustainability
  • Chartered Director

The Chartered Director award cannot be entered directly – the winner will be the person who scores the highest exam total of the year’s qualifying chartered directors.

The awards will be judged by a panel of experts drawn from IoD members, chartered directors, the business community and past winners.

Entries close on 23 January 2023. Winners will be announced in spring 2023, with a national awards ceremony to follow in the summer.

Jonathan Geldart (pictured), director general for the IoD, said: “Inspirational and talented directors have never been more important. As a country, we excel at entrepreneurship and innovation, but political instability and low economic confidence have forced directors to dig deep and draw on all their skills and experience.

“Our prestigious awards recognise individuals who meet the highest standards of leadership in the business, public and third sectors. I am looking forward to celebrating success with our winners.”
