IDS is seeking to appoint a new Chair of our Board of Trustees and we'd like the IDS community to contribute your ideas, possible candidate referrals and to circulate details of the search amongst your networks.
Our current Chair, Jonathan Kydd (DP79), has provided exceptional leadership over the past four years and seen the Institute through an exciting and successful period. His term of office is due to end next summer and we have partnered with a search firm, Red Sea Executive Search, to identify an exceptional candidate to take Jonathan’s place. They will need strategic vision and the passion to help lead the Institute through the next phase of our development, including the implementation of our new strategy 2020-25.
If you have suggestions of possible candidates or organisation referrals, please contact Tim Wingrove at Red Sea on:
