Founder and Chief Executive Officer of My Credit Controllers, Samantha White has been elected Area Leader for Lincolnshire at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)
According to FSB Chairman, Mike Cherry, local volunteers provide the FSB with a strong campaigning voice – locally and nationally by drawing upon their own personal experience in business.
“I want to congratulate Samantha on the election results. I know she will be a strong advocate for businesses across Lincolnshire.
FSB was founded to enable grassroots activists to fight for change. As we look back over the last year, we can celebrate a number of significant wins for our members – £6.7 billion taken out of the business rates regime, the scrapping of NICs increases for the self-employed and reforms to Making Tax Digital – all sparked by our members being vocal at the local level. “
Working alongside FSB Development Manager, David Thorpe and to help deliver local and national objectives to support Members and their businesses across Lincolnshire, Samantha hopes that by appointing a woman as Area Leader, the FSB will encourage more women entrepreneurs to attend events:
“The FSB was a great help to me when I first started out, so I am grateful for the opportunity to give something back. I hope that by appointing a female to the Area Leader position, it will encourage other female business owners to come along to events.
I started my own business, My Credit Controllers, 5 years ago and after managing it through rapid growth I have experienced first-hand many of the challenges that other FSB Members will be facing in their own businesses.
I am extremely passionate about changing the late payment culture and the reason I started my outsourced credit control business was to help businesses that are dealing with these issues. I would like to get more involved with helping FSB campaign to influence Government to implement policies that improve the situation. “
