The Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland has named Mark Spragg, Managing Director of the top Glasgow-based business consultants Where Now Consulting, as the new Chair of its Glasgow Branch.
Mark Spragg previously spent 12 years with Steelcase, the multinational US furniture and home furnishings manufacturer, latterly as its Vice President EMEA Channel Strategy and Management based in Munich, after leading its Northern European operations.
A Chartered Management Accountant, Mr Spragg has been the President of Inverclyde Chamber of Commerce for the past two years working with its board to restart face-to-face networking and training activities. He is also a committee member of the Chartered Governance Institute’s Scotland Branch.
Mark Spragg said: “I am hugely excited to be stepping into the role of branch Chair in Glasgow, which will provide a fantastic opportunity for me to share my passion for great governance and professional development.
“Glasgow’s historic reputation for creating then developing some of the very best directors over centuries is world-renowned.
“This city remains a cornerstone of both the Scottish and UK economies, and still boasts an amazingly diverse and healthy business and industry landscape.
“Our pivotal branch hub here will continue to provide an invaluable space for discussion and collaboration, with a focus on building and maintaining an ever-better pipeline of ground-breaking directors and businesses.”
Catherine McWilliam, Nations Director of IoD Scotland said:
“Mark has had a long and highly successful business career, most recently holding increasingly senior financial, commercial and corporate management positions in Scotland, the UK and in Europe.
“He is now Managing Director of Where Now Consulting, one of Scotland’s top management consultancies helping companies to grow and compete.
“I know how passionate Mark is about business and its place in society as a force for good – and so his appointment as our Chair in Glasgow will undoubtedly prove a huge asset for the IoD.”
