- Job title: Finance Director
- Country: Canada
- Length of service: 5.5 years
Kim has transformed the finance function and built a spirit of trust and collaboration. She created a vision for her team, and set about breaking down barriers so that now the entire Finance team is a cohesive, collaborative group. Throughout this period, she was a key contributor in realising a similar transformation in the relationship between Finance and the rest of the business, and today the finance function plays a central role in the business. In March 2016, her team won the 2015 Finance Quality Award showing just what an engaged team can accomplish!
A role model for others, Kim is a resilient leader who always rises to the challenge with a positive, can-do, collaborative and trusting approach. She has consistently outperformed in her role and last year was no exception. In addition to providing ongoing, exceptional service to the business, she was instrumental in the due diligence and closing of a key acquisition and its subsequent integration into the business.
Her ability to lead and engage others is exceptional. In last year’s employee survey, she achieved the highest departmental score in Canada, and her senior leadership colleagues have recognised her exceptional collaborative and cross-functional approach by twice awarding her the Futura Leadership Award.
