Leanne has worked at IT Desk for seven years as office manager and financial controller. Her tasks include cash management and maintenance of records.
“I love the challenge that being an office manager brings and I hope to carry on my personal development at a successful and growing company,” she said.
IT Desk managing director Chris Wright said: “Leanne has a real desire to learn and she makes our lives easier and we’d be lost without her. She keeps a check on things and makes things run smoothly while we’re monitoring our clients systems and carrying out remote support.
“The only way is up for IT Desk, we’re a growing company and we need to look after our staff and offer them personal development and Leanne is a great example of that. The happier our staff are, the better the service that we offer to our customers.”
