Nora Senior, Executive Chair UK Regions and Ireland, Weber Shandwick, has been recognised with a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2017. The Honour has been awarded for services to British and Scottish businesses.
In addition to her Weber Shandwick role, Nora held the voluntary post of President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) between 2013 and July 2016 and the office of Chair of Scottish Chambers (SCC) between January 2013 and April 2017.
She is the first woman in SCC history to have held the honorary position and the only person to have held the two national Presidents’ offices simultaneously since the Chamber movement was formed over 300 years ago.
Nora said: “I am immensely proud and humbled. It is a huge honour to receive such recognition; a tremendous tribute to the Chamber Network that works tirelessly to promote business interests and great recognition for the important role communications has in driving business growth and success. I am very proud to have had the opportunity to contribute to and influence policy in key areas such as international trade, education and women in business.
“Weber Shandwick takes its civic responsibilities and development of its people very seriously. I am grateful for the endorsement and support in carrying out the Chambers’ role.”
