Anna has been a part of the Finning executive team for 16 years and previously held various senior management positions in Finance including Controller of Union Gas Ltd., the second largest gas distribution company in Canada. “I am extremely honoured and very humbled to be in the same company as the other women leaders being recognized,” says Anna. “I am not one to seek attention so to be recognized as an influential leader is a huge honour. I have had wonderful leaders throughout my career that believed in me and encouraged me to take on new challenges. I hope I can encourage other women to do the same and believe in their abilities to take on new challenges and responsibilities and be successful.”

And it is extremely rewarding to be included on a list of such influential women,” says Lis.

“We are extremely proud of Anna’s and Lis’ achievements, they are extraordinarily talented and valued members of the Finning team and very deserving of this recognition”, says Scott Thomson, president and CEO, Finning International. “Their strong leadership skills combined with their expertise and influence in their respective professions has been instrumental in our growth as a company.
