New IoD Chair believed to be youngest ever

Friday 27 May 2022

IoD has appointed a new Chair, who is the third ever woman to hold the role, and believed to be the youngest ever incumbent.

In the leading role, Natasha Egré (38) is hoping to build on IoD Jersey's previous efforts to attract a younger audience of businesspeople.

Locally born, Ms Egré studied Multimedia Journalism at Bournemouth University. She went on to work in PR, becoming Director of Public Relations for The Refinery and is currently Head of Client and Product Development at Marbral Advisory.

She also co-founded Women in Leadership Jersey and works to promote diversity and inclusion. 

Ms Egré has served as Vice-Chair of Jersey's Institute of Directors branch for the past three years, working alongside outgoing Chair Lisa Springate, who was recently appointed Chair of Visit Jersey. 

"We have a lot of challenges ahead as we steer out of the pandemic and negotiate the economic fallout of the Ukraine/Russia war and Brexit. I'm looking forward to supporting our members and working with the new government following the June elections, to tackle the critical issues that face our island," she commented.

"The IoD should be at the forefront of conversations around fiscal stimulus, recruitment strategy, and supply chain challenges, and myself and our dedicated committees, will continue to ensure that members are represented for the benefit of business and the Island community and economy.

"We will continue to take a collaborative approach, where possible, but will also challenge on vital issues, and ensure decision makers are held to account."
