Chard-based transport and logistics company, C&D South West is celebrating the Managing Director’s recent graduation from the University of Sheffield on the 12th January 2023. In January 2020, C&D’s Managing Director, Lorna Hammond made the decision to embark on a two-and-a-half year Master’s Degree Apprenticeship course in Management and Strategic Leadership.

The Senior Leader Apprenticeship delivers a professional pathway to Chartered Manager or Chartered Fellow status and is designed by employers, working with the Chartered Management Institute. Lorna completed the course with the Executive Education team at The University of Sheffield Management School, enabling her to develop strategic leadership skills to improve the overall performance and long-term sustainability of C&D South West Ltd.

The programme covered a range of topics from leading and developing people, global strategy and innovation and organisational governance and Lorna is now excited to apply her learning strategically at C&D,

Lorna Hammond, C&D’s Managing Director said,

“I knew that embarking on this Master’s Degree course back in January 2020 was going to be a challenge, however I am now very proud to have been awarded this degree and attending the graduation this month was a very special event for me.

Completing a Master’s whilst running a business has certainly not been easy, but very rewarding and I am very excited to continue applying the knowledge, skills and behaviours I have learnt and developed on this course at my organisation.

As the third-generation leader within this company, I am delighted to continue in my role as Managing Director with this qualification behind me and take ‘delivering loads of quality’ to the next level.

I would also like to take this opportunity thank the University of Sheffield, all the team at C&D, my family and friends for all the support over the last few years that has enabled me to achieve this qualification”
