The Institute of Directors has boosted its East Yorkshire team with the appointment of health and safety management consultant Craig Foyle.

Craig is a chartered fellow of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) and specialises in project safety management, training and management systems and consultancy support for clients internationally.

He owns Foyle Safety & Management, an IOSH approved training provider, and lectures on health and safety management at the University of Hull.

The IoD supports its members to become better directors. As a branch ambassador, Craig will drive greater connectivity with members, support professional development and ensure that IoD national policy reflects the needs of local directors.

Craig said: “I am looking forward to working alongside my IoD colleagues in East Yorkshire to support local directors. I hope to use my experience to help members maximise the potential of their organisations at this challenging time for business.”

IoD East Yorkshire branch chair Debra Leeves said: “I am delighted that Craig has joined our leadership team here in East Yorkshire. He has considerable experience as a business owner and consultant which will be an asset as we support directors in their business journeys.”
