04 June 2015

The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lindsay Melvin, has been honoured by the Institute of Directors at the prestigious West Midlands Director of the Year Awards 2015.

Mr Melvin was highly commended in the Not-For-Profit Director of the Year category during the glittering ceremony that took place at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham earlier this week.

The judges praised Mr Melvin for his leadership of the organisation and the contribution he has made to the payroll and pensions sector since joining the CIPP.

Mr Melvin said: “I’m delighted to have been highly commended at the awards and in some respects it’s very much the cherry on the cake in what has been an incredibly productive couple of months for the CIPP, not least with membership recently soaring past the 10,000 mark. I’m incredibly proud to continue leading the organisation and I very much look forward to continuing our work to lead payroll and pensions professionals through education, membership and recognition.”

Mr Melvin has been CEO of the CIPP - the Chartered Institution for payroll and pensions professionals in the UK – since 2008 having originally joined the CIPP back in 2006 as Operations Director and Company Secretary.
