Edinburgh Trams has been nominated in four categories at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Awards – including the coveted title of Large Business of the Year. Other category nominations include Managing Director, Lea Harrison, as Director of the Year.
Mr Harrison has been nominated for leading the team as they helped to keep the city moving during the Covid-19 pandemic and the response to this is also part of the reason for Edinburgh Trams’ nomination as Large Business of the Year. Its also led to a nomination in the Digital Marketing category for a series of innovative information campaigns helping to keep passengers and employees safe from the virus.
The final nomination is in the Innovation in Business category where the project to speed up the process of providing permits for work near the tramway is recognised.
Lea Harrison commented: “While I’m delighted to be included on the awards shortlist, this reflects the dedication and professionalism of the entire Edinburgh Trams team. Across the organisation, colleagues have stepped up to face the many challenges presented by Covid and are now equally committed to look toward post-pandemic recovery. To be in the running for a total of four awards is testament to the practical steps we have taken to keep essential services running, and initiatives involving new technology and social media that are now being held up as best practice across the light rail sector.”
The award ceremony takes place on 24th February at the Edinburgh Conference Centre.
