Inez Brown, head of Medical Accident Group, sister company of HCR, has been appointed chair of the West Midlands region of the Institute of Directors (IoD).
Her appointment, to succeed Brian Hall, follows her presidency of Birmingham Law Society, where she has grown the Society’s membership and set up its first diversity inclusion scheme providing scholarships to students from disadvantaged backgrounds and under-represented groups.
Her new role will see work with the regional team, supporting members across four branches.
She said: “I am honoured to be selected – the IoD is committed to supporting our members as they recover from the pandemic and lead the economic revival. I am also looking forward to building on my work advocating diversity and inclusion within the workplace, together with providing mentoring and support to junior members of the Institute as we created the skilled directors of tomorrow.”
