Mansfield Pollard Managing Director Joanna Robinson has been recognised as one of the UK's most inspirational leaders.
The head of the Bradford-based air management specialist is included ín the 100-strong Faces of a Vibrant Economy 2017 list compiled by Grant Thornton and an independent panel.
Joanna Robinson said: “I am proud to have been named as one of Grant Thornton’s 100 Faces of a Vibrant Economy. It’s fantastic to be included in the list along with many inspirational leaders from across the UK.”
Joanna’s portrait features in the ‘Faces’ exhibition, along with her profile and the message she would give to her younger self is: “Always be yourself, don't ignore your instincts and push yourself out of your comfort zone whenever you get the opportunity.”
Sacha Romanovitch, CEO of Grant Thornton, believes that young people need more role models from the business, public and third sectors that demonstrate the value of vision, culture and purpose in their careers. She said: "Our Faces are exceptional leaders, driving positive results against a clearly defined purpose. Their commitment and passion make us want to be like them, to work with them and to learn from them.
“These leaders show us how business can be a force for good in society, how creative approaches to public services and commitment to investing in your people can drive superior results and how passion, coupled with purpose and a great idea can change the world for the better.''
