THE Institute of Directors has appointed Nigel Sikora as chairman of its West Yorkshire branch.
Mr Sikora (pictured), who is managing director of workplace improvement organisation Urban DNA, has been involved with the IoD in Yorkshire and the Humber for several years, sitting on the IoD Director of the Year judging panel for the last three years and chairing the judging panel in 2009.
He has also been a member of the West Yorkshire committee since 2006 and will take over the role from outgoing chairman, Claire Morley-Jones with immediate effect.
He said: “The West Yorkshire region has a dynamic and diverse business population with a growing IoD membership.
“It is important that the IoD is involved in the growth of our region over the coming years by planning relevant events, being a national voice for regional members and helping to encourage Yorkshire businesses to support and trade with each other.”
