BWB FINANCE TEAM SHORTLISTED FOR EAST MIDLANDS FINANCE AWARDS
21 June 2019
We are thrilled to announce that our BWB Consulting finance team have been shortlisted for ‘Team of the year’ in the East Midlands finance awards 2019. Not only this but their group director, Maxine Pearce, Finance & Corporate Services Director, has also been shortlisted for ‘Finance Director of the Year’.
The awards recognise the talent and hard work of accounting and finance professionals across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire and involve a strenuous shortlisting process with the event partners Barclays Bank, Cooper Parry, ICAEW, Mazars and the East Midlands Chamber.
This is a fantastic form of recognition for the hard work and pride that our Finance team have put into their work, especially over the last few years, during a time of change and adaption for BWB since CAF acquired us in 2017.
Our Finance team have evolved from a small isolated ‘back office’ team who had little interaction with the rest of the business, to a talented and motivated group of finance professionals leading the financial evolution of a growing group of companies.
In fact, this team now fulfils an invaluable role within our organisation, not only supporting its day to day financial needs, but also fundamentally involved in the strategic planning, leadership and cultural evolution of the business.
The team have seen us through the obstacles of the integration of three acquisitions brought into the group and now following joining CAF, the team have been charged with providing the foundation of financial governance for all CAF’s subsidiaries in the UK.
Maxine Pearce, Finance & Corporate Services Director, commented;
“Achieving this platform for growth in the UK is a challenging endeavour, but the team have applied themselves with the usual determination and focus and are now managing business finances in excess of £100m turnover.
They are, quite simply, the best at what they do, and it is a privilege to work with them.”
We wish Maxine and the finance team the best of luck for the awards evening and regardless of the outcome they are a winner in our eyes!
