Naoimh McAteer Appointed Chair of IoD’s Young Directors Forum

Congratulations to Naoimh McAteer, Director of MJM Marine who has been recently appointed as Chair of the Institute of Directors NI Young Directors Forum.

This comes on the back of Naoimh winning IoD NI’s 2019 Young Director of the Year Award.

The aim of the Young Directors Forum is to provide younger directors with a support network to assist them in growing their businesses and developing their own skills as business leaders.

Naoimh who is also a current member of the Newry Chamber Council, will take the helm for 12 months and said it was a great honour to chair such a diverse and inspiring group.

Speaking on the announcement, Naoimh said:

“I am delighted to take up this role in the Young Directors Forum. It is good to meet with other directors through this Forum to get different perspectives, see how they are adding value to their businesses and ultimately to hear their stories.”

“While we might operate in different sectors with a different client base, many of us have the same challenges and opportunities to manage or contend with.”

“As a young Director in a family business it is important to stay agile and to keep learning and I am looking forward to chairing the Forum and making a contribution to this very valuable organisation.”
