Bank University (LSBU) has been shortlisted for the 2015 Times Higher Education
Leadership and Management Awards (THELMAs) in the category of 'Outstanding Finance Team'.
The THELMAs celebrate examples of successful
innovation, teamwork and enterprise at UK higher education institutions and
highlight leading instances of best practice.
'Outstanding Finance Team' category for which LSBU has been nominated recognises
exceptional work in a university finance department and covers projects,
initiatives and endeavours implemented in the last academic year. The judges looked
at evidence of the overall impact of LSBU's financial strategy on the institution,
considering sustainability, communication of financial initiatives across the
university and the encouragement of non-finance leaders and managers to share
ownership of financial planning.
Flatman, Chief Financial Officer at LSBU, commented: 'I'm delighted that the
hard work of the LSBU finance team has been recognised with a nomination for a
Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Award. The award nomination is
a reflection of professionalism and excellence across the team and underlines
our strong response to the challenges of a new tuition fee regime and emerging
marketplace in Higher Education. Our focus on financial sustainability,
flexibility and resilience has enabled LSBU to take advantage of many development
opportunities, whilst retaining capital to safeguard future investment that
will allow us to continue to innovate, compete and succeed.'
The winners of
the 2015 Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards will be
announced on 18th June at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
