The West Midlands Finance Awards, which started in 2016 and is made up of 13 categories, promotes, and celebrates the achievements of businesses and individuals within the region’s finance community.

Wolseley is based at Kingmaker Court in Warwick Technology Park and a team from the office attended the awards in Birmingham last week (May 26), having been nominated and shortlisted in four categories.

On the night the team was named runner-up (highly commended) in the Finance Team of the Year category alongside Nicky’s award.

The award, in the category for businesses with a turnover of more than £100 million annually, is presented to the finance director who has a demonstrable legacy of delivering financial performance, leadership, and management, together with providing strategic direction to the company.

Nicky, who has previous financial experience with both small organisations and large companies, said: “During my six years at Wolseley, I have built up a great understanding of the operational side of the business which has enabled me to work smarter and focus in the right places to maximise performance.

"I am very proud to have been recognised by my peers and the judges at the West Midlands Finance Awards and will continue to drive the business forward.”
