The Institute of Directors (IoD) Guernsey Branch has appointed Glen Tonks as Chair, replacing Wendy Dorey who is standing down at the end of her tenure.
Originally from New Zealand, Mr Tonks has more than 27 years of global banking and financial services experience in the Channel Islands, Asia and Australasia.
He moved to Guernsey in 2020 and is currently the Country CEO of Credit Suisse in Guernsey. He became an IoD member in 2021 and will fulfil the role of Chair for two years.
"I would like to thank our outgoing Chair Wendy Dorey for the tremendous work she has done over her term. During her tenure, she introduced several new initiatives, and she leaves the local branch in excellent shape," he said.
"I look forward to continuing the IoD’s work, helping our business community to flourish and ensuring local leaders benefit from their IoD membership. We believe that better directors build better businesses. Our core purpose of Connect, Develop and Influence will continue to be our framework to grow our branch and support our members."

Ms Dorey said she has enjoyed her time as Chair and wished Mr Tonks well in the role.
"It has been a pleasure to serve as Chair of the IoD Guernsey branch over the past few years. Director development has been at the heart of our activities – and I’m delighted that, through our close partnership with the GTA, we’ve seen record numbers of local directors sit, and pass, the Certificate and Diploma exams. I wish Glen all the best as incoming Chair and look forward to seeing what he brings to the role."
