Network Waitaki chairwoman Clare Kearney has been named as the winner of The Otago Southland branch of the Institute of Directors (IoD) 2014 Aspiring Director Award.
Otago Southland branch chair Geoff Thomas was impressed with the effort Mrs Kearney put into developing herself for board roles.
“Clare brings a strong suite of skills to the board table, developed through a conscious focus on governance. Not only has she undertaken mentoring and professional
development, but she has also gained practical experience in the boardroom, which is important,” he said.
As the 2014 Aspiring Director, Mrs Kearney receives a year’s complimentary membership of the IoD, $1,500 towards IoD director development courses, complimentary attendance at four Otago Southland events, and mentoring from an experienced director.
Mrs Kearney said she was thankful for receiving this award.
