The IoD has appointed marketing expert Angela Brown as an ambassador in its North Yorkshire team.

Angela is the founder of Meteoric Marketing and has more than 25 years of B2B marketing experience. She works with founders and directors of SMEs to help them build their brand profile, drive sales and grow their business

She was shortlisted in the Young Director category at the IoD Yorkshire and the North East Director of the Year Awards 2020.

The IoD is the UK’s number one organisation for directors. As an ambassador, Angela will support IoD members to connect, develop professionally and influence policy and decision-makers at the highest levels.

Angela said: “With investment across the North and the introduction of new infrastructures such as super-fast broadband, North Yorkshire can become a dynamic, rural hub for businesses and communities.

“Being a company director can sometimes feel like a stressful and lonely place, and that’s especially true of the last 18 months. I want to spread the word about the IoD to give directors a voice and support them to connect with contemporaries across the region. The IoD is an excellent network, and there’s a lot we can do to help one another.”

Caroline Pullich, IoD North Yorkshire chair, said: “I am delighted to welcome Angela to our team. IoD ambassadors ensure that everything the IoD does places the member first, and this job has never been more important as we emerge from the pandemic and support one another to take advantage of the economic recovery.

“We continue to look for pragmatic and passionate directors who share our vision that better directors build a better world. If this sounds like you, please get in touch.”
