Auditel Sponsors The Winner Of The IoD’s Director of the Year (large company) Award

On Friday 23rd September, the IOD’s Director of the Year UK Final Awards Ceremony took place at London’s Lancaster Hotel at a special celebratory lunch. The event is the IoD's premier event in their calendar and once again attracted an abundance of exciting high-calibre entrants from across the UK.

Auditel, the UK’s favourite Cost and Purchase Management Specialist, were delighted to be sponsoring the IoD Director of the Year (large company) Award again this year. They welcome the involvement in raising awareness and celebrating the very best of business leaders in the UK. The award was open to all Directors from FTSE and other large listed companies who have shown excellence in their own region.

At the ceremony, Wesleyan Assurance Society Chief Executive Craig Errington won the Award after securing the West Midlands regional award earlier in the year. He then went on to win the main overall title as 2011 Overall Director of the Year.

Craig said: “This is a tremendous honour and I am delighted to have won. While it is an individual award, directors are only as good as the team and staff around them which is why everyone at Wesleyan can be proud of this accolade.”

Miles Templeman, Director-General of the IoD, added: “I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Craig. He is an outstanding winner and I wish him and Wesleyan Assurance Society more success over the years to come. He has beaten some incredible competition from across the country to win the ultimate accolade – UK Director of the Year.”
