MONEYPENNY'S Joanna Swash has been named a ‘woman to watch’ in the annual list compiled by Cranfield School of Management.

Launched alongside the Female FTSE Board Report, which provides an annual analysis of women on the boards of FTSE 350 companies, the Women to Watch 2021 is intended to shine a light on the impressive talent pool of women in business and offer a snapshot of some of those considered potential board members of the future.

The list spotlights 100 leading female professionals who the authors believe are ideally suited for consideration as non-executive directors (NEDs) on the boards of FTSE 350 companies now or in the near future.

Joanna Swash said: “I am delighted to be named in this annual list compiled by Cranfield School of Management. At Moneypenny we do things a little bit differently and in order to achieve business goals we believe it is about trust and belief in our people, combined with innovative advancements in technology, which are critical to our business success.

"I have always believed that the best leaders are those who empower their teams and provide a safe environment for their people to flourish and grow.”

Moneypenny, with its headquarters in Wrexham, is consistently featured in The Sunday Times Best Companies to work for and has 900 employees in the UK and a further 250 in the US.
