Regional award hope for Wendy

Posted onPosted on 5th Feb

An inspirational employee often described as going above and beyond to help drive Fidler and Pepper Solicitors forward has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Wendy Walker (pictured), who has worked at the law firm for more than 36 years, is a finalist in the Female Employee of the Year category of the Chamber East Midlands’ Enterprising Women Awards.

While Wendy’s main role is to supervise a large and growing conveyancing team, she also takes a lead in day-to-day management of the firm, managing work volumes, personnel and firm-wide projects.

Mark Slade, managing partner, said: “Wendy is one of a kind. Her work ethic and dedicated approach enables the firm to reach its ambitious targets and goals. She is a wonderful role model to all of the firm, and fully deserves to be a finalist.”

The East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) Enterprising Women Awards “celebrate and showcase the successes of women in business in the East Midlands business community over the past year”.

Corey Else, who has been at the firm, which has offices in Mansfield and Sutton, for three years, started out as an apprentice.

He said: “I feel supported by Wendy, who helps me set a clear path of what I can do next. I’m now working towards a professional qualification as a conveyancing technician.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 2nd March, a date that was chosen as it is close to International Women’s Day on 8th March.
