It has just been announced by the Institute of Directors (IoD) that Richard McBarnet, MD of Hemel Hempstead-based Lumina Technologies, has been appointed IoD Branch Chair for Hertfordshire.
Richard hopes that this new appointment will enable him to promote good governance at Board-level, as well as driving the pillars of the IoD – Better Directors, Better Economy, Better Business and Better Services.
He already fulfils the role of Cyber Security Ambassador for IoD Hertfordshire in order to encourageIT best practice, and aims to use his new position to further help the county’s business leaders. “I have the passion, energy, morals and business understanding to drive the Hertfordshire IoD branch forward and to help transform it into a shining beacon of best practice which, along with all of the East of England region will make us all proud to be part of the ‘Enterprising East’.”
He initially joined the IoD to help strengthen his understanding of good governance practices and meet other directors with similar values and passions. “I meet young, enthusiastic, passionate entrepreneurs who have done amazing things. My ongoing involvement with the IoD continues to inspire me, and I cherish the sense of having a meaningful voice that the IoD gives me.”
