Lisa Fiinigran, Davidsons Specialist Butchers

A MEMBER of staff from renowned North-east firm, Davidsons Specialist Butchers, has continued her successful run by recording a finalist’s place in a prestigious industry award.

Lisa Finnigan, who manages the company’s Inverurie shop, was named as one of three finalists in the Young Manager of the Year category of the recent 2015 Meat Management Industry Awards.

These are seen as setting an established benchmark for recognising excellence throughout the industry and are supported by many major players in the market.

No stranger to the awards circuit, Lisa was previously crowned Young Scottish Butcher of the Year in this year’s Meat Skills Scotland competition.

She has also showcased her skills at important industry events such as Taste of Grampian and the Royal Highland Show.

Lisa originally joined the Davidsons team in the bakery department and quickly completed her in-house and industry-led training before taking charge of the section then setting her sights on a move into the butchery department.

After completing her qualifications in record time and becoming the only female butcher on the team, Lisa took on her current management role at the age of 20.

Commenting on her success, Lisa Finnigan said: “Taking part in these awards is an excellent way of learning more about the industry and the people who drive it. I am very pleased to have reached the finals of these important awards.”

Managing director, John Davidson, added: “Since joining the butchery side of the business, Lisa has exceeded all our expectations and shows a real passion and drive for what she does. Her ongoing achievements show just what can be achieved through hard work and dedication.”
