Wesleyan chief executive named IoD Director of the Year

Wesleyan Assurance Society chief executive Craig Errington has been named Director of the Year at the IoD Awards in London.

After winning the national Large Business Director category, he then went on to win the overall award at the ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel on Friday (23/09).

Craig 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."

Craig joined Wesleyan as a Financial Adviser in 1991 and progressed rapidly through the company with eight successive promotions and a number of awards achieved in every role carried out. He became chief executive in 2005 and since then new business sales have increased by 238 per cent over a five year period and employee engagement has increased from 54 per cent in 2005 to 82 per cent in 2010.

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."
