IoD South West seeks new regional chair
The Institute of Directors is seeking a new regional chair to represent business leaders in the South West.

Current chair Nick Sturge, who is a chartered director and director of Bristol enterprise hub Engine Shed, is stepping down in January 2019 after three years in the role.

The voluntary position, which is for up to three years, aims to promote awareness of the IoD and act as a conduit for member feedback. 
 
The IoD has some 5,000 members across the South West region, representing the public and private sector, and is organised into six regional committees.

Nick said: “The South West has a well-deserved reputation for creativity and entrepreneurship.  
 
 
"It has been an honour for me to represent our membership nationally, supporting them in their ambitions for development and growth and promoting  good governance.  
 
"This is an incredible leadership opportunity for the right person, offering the opportunity to be at the centre of the business debate regionally and taking those views on to the national stage, in many cases helping to influence national policy."

Nick will remain involved in the IoD in his role on the IoD Council and Joint Board and Council Nominations Committee, and as part of the South West Chartered Directors Network. 

The IoD was founded in 1903 and is the largest membership organisation for buinesss in the UK, with over 30,000 members.
