Frank Blin named as The Prince’s AmbassadorFollow @PwC_Scotland
Frank Blin, executive chairman of PwC in Scotland has been honoured by HRH The Duke of Rothesay for his leadership and commitment to the public, private and charitable sectors after being named the next Prince’s Ambassador for Scotland.
Given to individuals whose leadership and commitment to business has resulted in changes and improvements inside their own company and who have inspired other organisations to take action, The Princes Ambassador award forms part of the 2012 Scottish Business in the Community Awards for Excellence.
Frank Blin, executive chairman at PwC in Scotland commented:
“It is a great honour to receive this recognition from HRH The Duke of Rothesay. I look forward to working closely with SBC and its partners over the next 12 months to not only promote the importance of partnership between the public, private and third sectors but continue to raise the profile of corporate social responsibility in Scotland.”
A long term advocate for corporate responsibility in Scotland as well as a staunch supporter of Scotland’s business community, Frank has been a major influence both inside and outside of PwC since the early 1990s.
He was a co-founder of The Entrepreneurial Exchange, which has nurtured emerging business talent in Scotland over the last 22 years and he has helped mentor young people through the Princes Scottish Youth Business Trust. Frank was also instrumental in embedding a culture of corporate social responsibility in PwC, with many of the initiatives run in Scotland being introduced across the wider firm.
Frank Blin added:
“About ten years ago, I sat down with the team to talk about our values and what we should be bringing to the business, our employees and also our local communities. From this our Force for Good programme was born. Fast forward to 2012, and we consistently see over 70% of our people participating in at least one charity, community or environmental activity every year and in many cases, this has led to ongoing and sustainable relationships with a wide range of organisations.”
