Institute looks over border for new regional director

The Institute of Directors has appointed its national director for Wales as its regional director for the South West.

Robert Lloyd Griffiths takes over from Simon Face, who has been in the role since 2003, and will maintain his position in Wales which he has held since 2009.

He will by supported by Kerri-Anne Mruk, who takes on the new role of senior branch manager for Wales and the South West.

He said: "Boosting local economies through support of our members is, of course, our priority as we have seen so many sectors hit hard by the impact of lockdown.

"Clearly, there is a difficult balancing act between controlling the virus and supporting business to survive and we must work together to do the right thing.

"This is an important time for the Institute in many respects and I am looking forward to working closely with our fantastic members in the region and ensuring they are getting the support they need at a time of considerable change."

He continued: "With change comes opportunity and it is our job to give directors the tools they need to navigate their way through this challenge and that of an imminent Brexit.

"I am delighted to be taking on this role and working with a strong team of dedicated and experienced IoD members and ambassadors connecting, developing and influencing as we look forward into, hopefully, a more positive 2021."

Mr Lloyd Griffiths also chairs the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Business Advisory Group and was awarded an OBE in 2014 for services to the economy and the voluntary sector.

South West IoD chair Muir Macdonald said: "I am hugely grateful to Simon for his work to date and look forward to introducing Robert to our members over the coming weeks."
