Judith Parry

The Institute of Directors has strengthened its North Yorkshire team with the appointment of Judith Parry as Chartered Director ambassador.

Chartered Director is a prestigious qualification awarded to directors by the IoD under its Royal Charter. As a Chartered Director and IoD Fellow, Judith will support the professional development of local directors and help them to enhance their skills.

Judith spent seven years as an independent director of a listed company in the international oil and gas sector. Her background is in corporate business development, PR and investor relations and she has worked for energy companies ranging from start-ups to PLCs.

In recent years, she has mentored regional tech start-ups and has taken on an executive role with an emerging company involved in AI-enabled diagnostic support for mental health disorders.

IoD ambassadors drive greater connectivity with members, support learning and development and give a local voice to the Institute, while ensuring that IoD national policy reflects local issues.

Judith said: “Becoming a Chartered Director gave me the knowledge to approach a new board role with added confidence, particularly in corporate governance matters. Working with young entrepreneurs, I am now looking forward to playing my part inspiring the ambitious millennial generation as they set out on their journey to success.”

Caroline Pullich, chair of IoD North Yorkshire, said: “Judith is an outstanding advocate for lifelong learning and I am delighted that she is putting such great energy into supporting the next generation of directors to fulfil their potential. She will champion the Chartered Director programme and encourage directors to reap the benefits of this world-renowned qualification.”
