Wesleyan Chief Financial Officer is West Midlands' Young Director of the Year

Ahmed Farooq, Wesleyan's Chief Financial Officer (CFO), has been named Young Director of the Year at the West Midlands Director of the Year Awards, run by the IoD (Institute of Directors).

The judges were impressed by the journey Ahmed has taken to achieve the role of CFO, achieving four promotions since joining Wesleyan in 2010. They considered him "a great role model for future business leaders" and credited him with "helping to keep Wesleyan focused on delivering real service and benefits that ensure high levels of client retention".

Speaking at the presentation in Birmingham on 22 June, Ahmed said: "I'm really pleased to have won this award not just for myself but for Wesleyan and all of the people who have supported me while I've been working here. I can honestly say I couldn't wish for a better team around me."

Wesleyan Group Chief Executive Craig Errington added: "Ahmed really deserves this award. He's worked incredibly hard over the years in a number of different roles that he's tackled with unstinting determination and optimism.

"He's a great ambassador for Wesleyan and a huge asset to our team. I'm really pleased for him and wish him every success at the national awards."

Ahmed joined Wesleyan in 2010 as head of management accounting. In his role as CFO he oversees the finance, actuarial and investment departments and is a member of the Group Executive Team.

Ahmed will now go forward to the national IoD awards in September where he will be up against some of the UK's top young directors.
