IoD appoints Craig Bentley as Leicestershire vice-chair

The Institute of Directors (IoD) has appointed Craig Bentley as vice-chair for Leicestershire and South East Midlands.

Craig is director of specialist management consulting firm Bentley Management and Consulting. He is also co-founder of Swotly, an ed-tech business which uses voice technology to improve parental engagement with children’s learning.

Prior to setting up his consulting business Craig led commercial and operations teams for global companies in manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management.

He succeeds Dr Shamir Ghumra as vice-chair and will remain as the branch ambassador for policy and governance.

As vice-chair, Craig will work closely alongside branch chair Sarah Canning and a team of specialist ambassadors to provide connections, professional development opportunities and an influential lobbying voice for all directors.

Craig said:

“I am delighted to take on this role. We want to support local directors to deal with the challenges facing their organisations but also to provide them with the tools they need to prosper. I will be using my experience in helping clients to manage change and think through better ways of working.”

Sarah Canning, chair of IoD Leicester and South East Midlands, added:

“I’d like to thank Shamir for his excellent work as vice-chair and welcome Craig as our new vice-chair. As someone with a passion for helping SMEs to achieve their full potential, I am delighted that Craig has agreed to take on this additional role. We are a community of individual members made stronger through the strength of our network – helping each other grow and succeed.”
