Ann Francke, CEO at CMI, commented:

“CMI is delighted to award Sam Johnston the highest professional status, Chartered Manager. Raising the quality of management skills is essential to the wellbeing and productivity of the workforce. Unqualified, accidental managers mean that four in ten of us rate our line managers as ineffective. Professionally trained managers such as Sam improve business performance and operations.”

Sam Johnston added:

“Becoming a Chartered Fellow was the ideal way to demonstrate skills gained from over two decades of experience leading people and managing change. The rigorous accreditation process identifies strengths and opportunities for growth, providing a roadmap for future development. The credential also gives balance to a strong technical background and entrepreneurial mindset. I am pleased to be a member of the growing global community of professional managers.”

The Chartered Manager accreditation is designed to equip managers with the professional capability to drive and lead better organisations. CMI’s 2015 Mapping Management Excellence research revealed Chartered Managers add value to their companies through developing new products or services and improving operational efficiencies, through far higher levels of productivity. As individuals, Chartered Managers gain increased confidence, self-awareness and add an average of £341,443 in value to their employers.
