He succeeds Paul Winter, chief executive of Ipswich Building Society, who has completed a two-year term in the role.

Mr Morris, joined Larking Gowen as a partner in November 2011. His remit is to develop the firm’s corporate business and he also leads its energy sector specialisation.

“The Institute of Directors is a professional organisation which provides quality business events and access to excellent training for directors as well as other opportunities.

“As local chairman I’ll be helping to give a voice for Suffolk nationally,” he added. “I became an IoD member just over a year ago and I really want to widen access to membership because I know there are a lot more business people like me who can benefit.”

Mr Morris grew up in North Lincolnshire and studied at Kings College, Cambridge where he graduated with MSci Physics and BA (Hons) Natural Sciences.
