Lisa Cooke, Finance Director of Sussex-based Mediwin PPIP Ltd, has become IoD Sussex Ambassador for Finance and Health.
Lisa is a CIMA and IoD qualified Finance Director with a background in manufacturing and owner managed businesses. In her role at Mediwin, and as part of a European group of companies in the pharmaceutical sector, Lisa has managed all reporting, treasury, working capital & HR requirements during periods of high growth and change. Lisa is passionate about manufacturing and the importance of SME business in the wider economy and was drawn to completing the IoD Certificate in 2020 to provide insight into best practice and broader understanding of the role of the board.
Lisa said: “I am delighted to have accepted the role of Finance and Health ambassador for the Sussex branch. I am looking forward to getting to know the branch members and exploring the various ways in which the IoD supports their needs. I understand the challenges of leadership within SME’s without the technical support that may be available to large corporates and have found the IoD to be a great source of information in terms of technical helplines, quality CPD and business knowledge through networking.”
Michele Augousti, IoD Sussex Chair said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Lisa to our team. Finance and Health is are critical sectors and are important for all organisations regardless of size and complexity. Her expertise will be invaluable as we look ahead to continued recovery and growth in Sussex.”
