Liverpool recruitment specialist, David Wafer, is the new chair of the Institute of Directors (IoD) in Liverpool.
As managing director of award-winning recruitment company, McIver Scott, Mr Wafer has almost 20 years experience in the recruitment sector and has won an array of business awards.
He has now been selected to head up the IoD’s Liverpool branch following his two-year stint as vice-chair of the Liverpool branch. He succeeds Intellectual Property Offices deputy chief executive, David Holdsworth.
Mr Wafer said: “As an active member of the IoD and holding the role of vice chair, I firmly believe in the great value of the institution for members here in Liverpool and throughout our North West region. We provide connectivity, resources and events that is simply unrivalled for decision makers.
“I’m proud to have been born and bred in Liverpool and work in the fastest-growing city region in the UK. Last year I became a business and policy committee advisor for Liverpool and Sefton Chambers of Commerce.
“I am keen to support commerce across my home city and the Merseyside region, and am very passionate about the work we can collectively do here. In times of political uncertainty, it is crucial we can help to provide a voice for the Liverpool city region.”
Claire Ebrey, IoD North West regional director, added: “David has a clear passion for working with the Liverpool business community to grow and develop our community of leaders in the city, create even more opportunity and drive growth within the economy.”
The IoD runs a regular programme of events in Liverpool for members and non-members; this year the events have addressed critical business issues with high-profile speakers including Peter Moore of Liverpool FC and Mowgli founder Nisha Katona.
