HARVEY Maps is an employee owned company.
This means that every member of our team, no matter what their role, is committed to delivering the best possible service and has a voice in how the company is run.
A key aspect of being employee owned is that employees are elected by their peers to serve on both the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors. By putting its employees at the heart of the organisation, HARVEY Maps is proud to be an employee owned company.
Having spent much of her working life setting up and growing HARVEY Maps, Sue stepped back from her operational role as CEO at the end of 2019. She then served as a Director and still sits on the Board of Trustees.
In 2023, to mark Sue's incredible working career, she was appointed Honorary President of HARVEY Maps.
Board of Trustees
Carole Leslie joined the Board of Trustees in 2020. She has been involved in the field of employee ownership for 20 years. She worked for a Stirling based IT consultancy that went through an employee buyout and became an adviser supporting other companies in 2005.
She launched her own employee ownership consultancy in 2010. Carole also served a stint as Policy Director of the Employee Ownership Association and has supported more than 60 companies in their move to employee ownership.
She is a non Exec Director and Independent Trustee to a number of companies and works closely with other bodies such as Scottish Enterprise and professional associations in spreading the word on why employee ownership is a better way to structure business.
Sue is also a Trustee of HARVEY Maps.
