Cleaver Fulton Rankin celebrate success in Women in Business Awards

November 26, 2014

Cleaver Fulton Rankin are celebrating the recent success of Director Lisa Boyd who won the ‘Best in Professional Services’ award and of its Managing Director Karen Blair who was a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Management and Leadership’ category at the Women in Business Awards 2014

Lisa Boyd’s drive and early development of the firm’s Procurement Unit, prepared Cleaver Fulton Rankin for the upsurge in recent years in public procurement cases.  In the space of 2-3 years Lisa has managed to increase the profitability of the  procurement unit year on year and her determination and eye for spotting a gap in the market has seen her fast track through the business to be promoted to Director at the age of only 31.  Following her appointment as Director in November 2012, Lisa’s creative and innovative ideas demonstrated in her dedication to the firm’s charitable activities, saw her appointed as Marketing Director in March 2013.  In addition to her demanding caseload, Lisa is also responsible for developing the firm’s image through public relations, events, social media and other marketing strategies. Lisa is recognised not only by the firm and her clients for her professionalism but also externally.  Law directories refer to her as a “leader in the field”, “extremely competent” and a solicitor who “continually goes the extra mile for clients”.

Managing Director Karen Blair was a Finalist in the “Outstanding Management and Leadership” category for the second year running. In 2009, Karen Blair was elected as the first female Managing Partner at Cleaver Fulton Rankin in more than 100 years. Given the economic climate at the time of Karen’s appointment, she was faced with the responsibility of identifying new business opportunities to determine the future direction of the firm and ensure sustained growth. During her four years to date Karen has sought to embrace the challenges, grow the firm’s many strengths and drive its continued development in the market place.

Cleaver Fulton Rankin would like to congratulate all winners and finalists of the Women in Business Awards.
