Leading the way
Five emerging directors from the Canterbury region have been recognised for 2022.
The Emerging Director Award was established by the Institute of Directors (IoD) to foster the development of upcoming talent in governance and leadership across business and the community sectors.
The award recognises executives, managers, directors and individuals who are at the early stages of their governance careers.
The recipients of this year’s award, Jane Fowles, Leandra Fitzgibbon (pictured), Mariann Matai, Emma Hodgkin, and Aaron Smith have backgrounds spanning technology, human resources, law and agriculture.
Each winner receives a range of opportunities that will support their on-going governance development.
These include mentorship with an experienced director, one year membership with the Institute of Directors and complimentary attendance to IoD branch events, $1500 towards IoD course costs and a one year internship placement with a relevant board.
