What does the profile of the average Director of IR look like? Results from the National Survey of IR Offices, in combination with AIR’s membership data, show that the average IR Director is 50 years old, has an advanced degree (46% have master’s degrees and 43% have doctoral degrees), has spent 11 years in IR, and 6.5 years leading IR at their current institution. Additionally, the average IR Director spends nearly half their time on meetings (5.3 hours/week), basic analytics (5.2 hours/week), data collection (4.6 hours/week), and data governance (4.5 hours/week) of IR services. The most and least likely units to use IR services are reflected below.
