Board Apprentice is delighted to welcome the appointment of its very own Founder and Chair, Charlotte Valeur, to the role of Chair of the Institute of Directors.

Aside the many challenges that the IoD addresses for its community and UK plc, we were delighted to hear Charlotte say: “It’s imperative that people of all backgrounds know that the world of business is not a closed shop, and the IoD has a major part to play in achieving this. Firms draw strength from their diversity of perspective, while the good standing of business leaders in society relies upon the route to the top being open to all.” Charlotte takes office on 3rd September 2018.

Stephen Martin, Director General of the IoD, said:

“I’m delighted to welcome Charlotte as our new Chair. She brings with her an impressive range of experience, gained by leading businesses of different sizes and sectors… I know that Charlotte’s insight and genuine commitment to good governance will ensure we are perfectly placed to lead as we begin a fresh chapter in the Institute’s history…On top of this, Charlotte doesn’t just talk the talk when it comes to diversity. With Board Apprentice she has already made a genuine difference, and I’m sure she will continue in this vein as Chair of the IoD.”
