IoD launches search for North Yorkshire chair

The Institute of Directors (IoD) is seeking a new chair to become the voice of business for North Yorkshire.

Current chair Ed Reid, owner of York-based The Alternative Board, is stepping down from the influential role.

The successful candidate will work alongside branch committees to ensure that the views of North Yorkshire businesses are represented within the IoD’s national policy voice.

IoD regional director Natalie Sykes said: “Ed has done a terrific job as chair and will be a hard act to follow.

“This is an exciting and dynamic time for the IoD. Our new chair will work alongside our newly-launched Ambassador network – a group of high-profile business leaders who represent and promote the interests of the IoD in their area.

“This voluntary position is open to all members who reside or work in North Yorkshire. The successful candidate will promote the profile of the IoD across our region by engaging with local businesses and other stakeholders including local authorities and universities.”

Interested candidates should send their CV and covering letter to by 10 March. Interviews will take place in the week beginning 14 March.
