The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of directors that entered or were nominated across nine different categories.

The expert judging panel will now convene to decide the overall winners to be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday 14 June 2018 at the iconic 116 Pall Mall, the home of the Institute of Directors (IoD).

The Institute of Directors is a non-party political organisation, founded in 1903, with approximately 30,000 members. Membership includes directors from right across the business spectrum – from media to manufacturing, professional services to the public and voluntary sectors. Members include CEOs of large corporations as well as entrepreneurial directors of start-up companies.

The IoD was granted a Royal Charter in 1906, instructing it to “represent the interests of members and of the business community to government and in the public arena, and to encourage and foster a climate favourable to entrepreneurial activity and wealth creation.” The Charter also tasks the Institute with promoting “for the public benefit high levels of skill, knowledge, professional competence and integrity on the part of directors”, which the IoD seeks to achieve through its training courses and publications on corporate governance.

The 2018 IoD Director of the Year Awards will take place at the Royal Horticultural Halls, London, on the 18 October. For further details visit
