Professor Bryan Foss has been awarded the Chartered Director professional qualification by the Institute of Directors

chartered director

Bryan, a very well networked independent director and IoD Fellow, regularly speaks and writes on Corporate Governance matters.

With 9 years of independent board experience since moving from his international IBM career, Bryan has been a board member of Motive Television plc, aSource Global Group and public sector organisations including DWP and DCLG, often chairing risk, audit and other key committees.

Bryan is currently working closely with British Chambers on a governance, finance and membership accreditation programme for UKTI investment in export development, also using his extensive financial services compliance knowledge to assist the launch of a new challenger bank.

As is common for a Chartered Director, some pro-bono and NFP board level work completes his portfolio. One of these additional roles is as Visiting Professor, Bristol Business School and Bryan is a recognised business author, panellist and speaker.

Bryan sees a significant portfolio career still ahead and his recent Chartered Director accreditation confirms this, although it is likely that he’ll also take time out for travel as the opportunity arises.
