Yorkshire Post - - BUSINESS -

TEN BUSI­NESS lead­ers from the re­gion have been named on a na­tional list of 100 in­flu­en­tial in­di­vid­u­als by busi­ness and fi­nan­cial ad­viser Grant Thorn­ton.

Grant Thorn­ton’s 100 Faces of a Vi­brant Econ­omy cel­e­brates lead­ers who demon­strate ex­cel­lence and ded­i­ca­tion to growth, pur­pose and in­no­va­tion.

Joanna Robin­son, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Brad­ford-based Mans­field Pol­lard, is among 100 peo­ple cho­sen by Grant Thorn­ton and an in­de­pen­dent panel for their work to build a more pur­pose­ful and so­cially re­spon­si­ble Bri­tain.

The boss of the air man­age­ment ex­perts said she was “proud” to have been named among the 100.

Ms Robin­son added: “It’s fan­tas­tic to be in­cluded in the list along with many in­spi­ra­tional lead­ers from across the UK.”

Sharon Wat­son, from Phoenix Dance, Diane Cheese­brough, from the­big­word, Gina Row­lands, of Be­van Health­care, Andrew Lane, Union In­dus­tries, Glynn Robin­son, from BJSS, Derek Carter, Por­tak­abin, Chris Hus­bands, Sh­effield Hal­lam Univer­sity, Lee Straf­ford, Ac­cel­er­ated Dig­i­tal Ven­tures, and Carl Cavers, Sumo Dig­i­tal, are the other nine York­shire lead­ers to make the list.

Andy Wood, man­ag­ing part­ner for Grant Thorn­ton York­shire, said: “I’m de­lighted to see so many York­shire names on our list of Faces. This is a tes­ta­ment to the en­thu­si­asm, tal­ent and di­ver­sity of our re­gion’s busi­ness com­mu­nity.

“Their com­mit­ment and pas­sion makes us want to be like them, to work with them and to learn from them. They demon­strate how busi­nesses can be a force for good in so­ci­ety, how cre­ative ap­proaches and com­mit­ment to in­vest­ing in your peo­ple can drive re­sults, and how pas­sion, cou­pled with pur­pose and a great idea can change the world for the bet­ter.”
