Double awards success for Wesleyan

Samantha Porter, Wesleyan Assurance Society’s Marketing Director, has been highly commended in the Young Director category at the Institute of Directors (IoD) Director of the Year Awards.  This success came less than 24 hours after Wesleyan was announced as the winner in the Finance category at the Birmingham Post awards.

The Young Director award celebrates outstanding achievements at work in the previous 12 months. Sam became the first woman to join Wesleyan’s Board in October 2011 having worked for the financial mutual since 1995. She has also played a key part in a number of major projects that have contributed to Wesleyan’s growth. She was named the IoD West Midlands Young Director of the Year in May.

Speaking about the awards Sam said: “I am delighted to have been selected from such a prestigious line-up for this commendation. I am lucky to work with a great Executive management team at Wesleyan and to have the support of dedicated colleagues throughout the Society but particularly in my Marketing and Retail Distribution Review teams.”

Craig Errington, Wesleyan Chief Executive and IoD Director of the Year for the UK in 2011, commented: “It’s been a great few days for Wesleyan both regionally and nationally and shows the strength of our people, our services and our products. I’d like to say a big thank you to all of our staff who work so hard and contribute to Wesleyan’s ongoing success.”
