The IoD Director of the Year UK Final Awards Ceremony took place at London’s Lancaster Hotel during a special celebratory lunch.

The event, which is sponsored by cost reduction franchise Auditel, aimed to raise awareness and celebrate 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 main overall title as 2011 Overall Director of the Year.

Errington 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.”
