Armadillo Board Members Qualified with the Institute of Directors

Armadillo Board Members Qualified with the Institute of Directors

CRM specialist Armadillo CFO, Andy Brown, and chairman, Chris Thurling, have both qualified with the Institute of Directors as Chartered Directors. With fewer than 2,000 Chartered Directors worldwide, the qualification demonstrates the business’s commitment to investing in employee development at every level, as well as the business's dedication to corporate and social governance.   

The Institute of Directors (IoD) is a British professional organisation for company directors, senior business leaders and entrepreneurs. It is the UK's longest running organisation for professional leaders, having been founded in 1903 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1906. 

The Chartered Director qualification process involves the study of four modules: governance, strategy, leadership and finance, followed by an exam for each module and then a further three-hour written exam and an interview with a current chartered director. 

Chris Thurling comments: “We understand that strengthening our skills as chartered directors should mean we are able to better serve Armadillo, supporting sustainable, long-term growth. A company director is a profession (as much as an accountant for example) therefore why shouldn’t we be qualified for the role?” 

Andy Brown adds: “I’m really pleased that Chris and I have been able to complete this training and qualification together. As well as learning more about strong leadership, governance and strategy, we’ve had the advantage of the shared experience of completing this together and bringing ideas back to enhance Armadillo’s Board effectiveness.” 

Chris and Andy will also be joining the South West chartered directors network. With members representing agriculture, aerospace, tourism and manufacturing, IoD South West reflects the vibrant and innovative sectors in the region.
