Miles Templeman - Director General, Institute of Director

Miles Templeman - Director General, Institute of Directors visits De Montfort University to give a free lecture at the Distinguished Lecture Series.

Institute of Director (IoD) Director General, Miles Templeman began his career as a marketing specialist and led major consumer brands including Daz, Ribena, Lucozade and then Levis jeans. He then moved to general management and became Managing Director of Threshers and then the Whitbread Beer Company. He had great success in building those companies, especially with the growth of such brands as Boddingtons and Stella Artois.

He then had a series of non-executive directorships and consultancy roles including Royal Mail, Ben Sherman and Accenture before becoming Chief Executive of Bulmers, which was sold to Scottish & Newcastle.

A firm believer in the power of the brand and the importance of valuing your team, Miles is a passionate believer in the values of enterprise and took the role of Director General at the IoD at a time when its influence and relevance was at an all time peak, particularly with the growing importance of corporate governance, director standards and the importance of entrepreneurship and innovation in business.

Alongside his IoD role, Miles is non-executive Chairman of Shepherd Neame, the Kentish family brewer; Chairman of The European Confederation of Directors’ Associations (ecoDa); a board member of Young Enterprise and Enterprise Insight; and a non-executive director of Melrose plc, the buy-out specialist.
