The Chief Executive of Cornerstone, Edel Harris, was announced as the Aberdeen and Grampian Director of the Year at the Institute of Directors Scotland Awards 2016.
Despite challenging market conditions, Edel’s ambitious strategy has enabled Cornerstone to continue to grow and maintain its reputation as a pioneering provider of high quality social care services, as well as extending the organisation’s reach across Scotland.
Her leadership helped Cornerstone generate an annual income in excess of £36 million and the organisation now provides support to more than 2,600 people across 20 local authority areas in Scotland.
Last year Edel was appointed President of the Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce - the first female President in the 160 year history of the AGCC, and the first President of any British chamber from the third sector.
Edel commented: "Thrilled to have been recognised at the IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards. This award is testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone who works for Cornerstone and our terrific Board of Directors."
