We are delighted to announce that Ann-Marie O’Dea was recently recognised as the Most-Influential Personal Investments & Insurance CEO in Northern England 2023 by CEO Monthly.

Ann-Marie was recognised for her unique leadership style, and for her dedication to putting members first and maintaining the culture and values at Shepherds Friendly.

“As all members own the society, and there are no shareholders, everything is done for the benefit of the membership and the organisation’s ethos as a mutual gives it a different approach, meaning it can spend time and energy on understanding its members and how it can help them.”

– Ann-Marie O’Dea

CEO Monthly also highlighted some of the goals that Shepherds Friendly has been working towards under Ann-Marie’s leadership, such as the various charity initiatives that we have undertaken in the local community in recent years.

Ann-Marie has commented on this achievement, saying: “It is great to see all of our hard work being recognised. This award is an endorsement of everything that the company has been working towards over the past few years.”
