A FINANCE director in Huddersfield has picked up her second award in two years.
Sarah Turvey, finance director of compliance and business support service company SimplyBiz, was named Best Finance Director of an SME at the Yorkshire Finance Director Awards.
It follows her success in winning the title Young FD of the Year at the CBI/RealFD Financial Directors Excellence Awards in 2008.
The Yorkshire Finance Director Awards, held in Harrogate, feature awards in five key categories and aim to recognise the contribution of the region’s top finance directors and their ability to adapt to changing market conditions.
Said Sarah: "I’m absolutely delighted to have received the award, especially given the exceptional calibre of others nominated in the category.
"The standard of competitor at regional events such as this reinforces my pride in working for a Yorkshire-based company.
SimplyBiz chairman Ken Davy said "Everyone who works with Sarah knows how truly well deserved this award is and how much she has contributed to the ongoing success of SimplyBiz."
Sarah has been a member of the SimplyBiz board since the company was launched in 2002.
She previously held roles heading the finance team at the Huddersfield Giants and at the Rugby Football League. Before that, she established and ran her own accountancy practice.
SimplyBiz, based at the Galpharm Stadium, provides compliance and other business support services to more than 2,000 financial services firms and 5,000 individual advisers nationwide.
