Across the West Midlands the IoD is building a strong community of business leaders, who understand the challenges, have access to quality personal and professional development, can offer peer support at a senior level and influence policy that affects our businesses (be that local, regional or national) and who generally help make the West Midlands a great place to live and work. A region to stay in after university and a thriving environment to start-up and grow your business.

Attended by business leaders, entrepreneurs, government and media representatives, our annual Director of the Year Awards has recognised directors from diverse regional businesses.

The West Midlands Director of the Year Awards celebrate the best of the best across British businesses and directors at the forefront of leadership excellence and is open to both members and non-members from across the business spectrum.


quoteGood governance and embedding an ethical approach to business is an incredibly important part of the Second Century Plan, with the vision ‘to be the great British car company that creates the most beautiful automotive art in the world".   This award further demonstrates the success of our transformation plan.
