A LEADING business figure in Yorkshire is stepping down.
John Thompson will step down from his post as regional director of the Yorkshire and Humber region of the Institute of Directors in July as he reaches his 65th birthday.
Mr Thompson said: “I’ve been most fortunate to hold this very privileged and enjoyable position for almost a decade.
“It has been a fantastic way to meet many of the region’s business leaders, grow the IoD brand and help in fostering business growth in the region as well as bringing together some great minds to share their experiences, network and foster business collaborations.”
The IoD Yorkshire Region has almost 2,000 members with active branches in West, South, East and North Yorkshire.
Margaret Wood, who chairs the Yorkshire IoD, said: “I wish to thank John enormously for all his hard work and effort on behalf of the IoD.”
