Norse financial accountant picks up regional award

Leanne Fisher, Financial Accountant at Norse Commercial Services, picked up the regional Marks and Spencer Sieff award, at the recent Business In The Community 2012 'Responsible Business of the Year Awards'.

The award recognises the emerging next generation leaders; individuals who are driving sustainability values into the heart of the business to help transform the way they do business in the future.

The judges noted that Leanne, who joined Norse in November 2012, inspires and motivates colleagues whilst improving business processes and reducing auditing costs; her drive and ambition has also seen her create a number of apprenticeships where she is developing a pool of talent.

'As the role was a new position within the business it has provided me with ample opportunity to bring my prior experience, and implement some simple changes that have resulted in cost savings,' Leanne commented. 'I am always a keen advocate of training the next generation, and with Norse being so keen on developing new staff and the apprentice scheme this has provided me with a great base to develop my team.'
