Highland Business Women Appoint New President

4th Sep 2017


Jillian Sharp, Finance Director at Wyvis Roofing Inverness Ltd, has been appointed President of
Highland Business Women. Jillian takes over from Victoria Leslie, Partner, of Ledingham Chalmers.


In her tenure as President, Victoria has overseen a continued increase in the membership of Highland Business Women as well as the organisation’s success at last year’s Association of Scottish Business Women Awards where it was crowned Best Business Women’s Group in Scotland. 


Victoria said “Resigning as President was a very tough decision and it is purely due to there not being enough hours in the day. Jillian has some great ideas and she has an excellent Board behind her. I will be remaining as a member of Highland Business Women and have greatly enjoyed my time as President.” 


Jillian Sharp said “It is an honour to be taking over as President of Highland Business Woman from Victoria – she has done great work in her period as President and I know I have “big shoes to fill”. I look forward to working with new members and old going forward as well as our hard working Board.”


Highland Business Women meet at least once a month and its meetings are a great way to informally network and meet fellow business people that you may not necessarily meet in your day to day work. 


Any woman – or man for that matter can join – whether an employee, employer, self employed or retired.
