Mark Greenwood C Dir is MD of Compass House Consultancy Ltd. He is a Chartered Engineer with a varied career spanning petrochemicals with Exxon/Esso Chemicals, logistics with NFC plc, FMCG with Scottish & Newcastle and consulting with KPMG.

 

Mark is another Chartered Director who is already highly qualified and experienced, so why did he embark on a new qualification?

 

“I have found already that achieving C Dir is recognised by the investment community, customers and suppliers – there is a clear understanding that becoming a C Dir demonstrates a clear level of competence and a commitment to continuing professional development.” He continues “the timing is also an important factor – there is rightly more focus from potential investors / VC’s and shareholders on the true capability of the directors they must trust to run and grow their businesses.”

 

So having completed the IoD Company Direction programme and gained Chartered Director, would he recommend it others? Greenwood is unequivocal,  “Absolutely – and get started now!  If your aim, like mine, is to also build a non– executive portfolio the achievement of C Dir provides the company or recruitment agency with the endorsement that the individual can add real value in such a role.”
