FRN Management Team - HOT

A huge congratulations to all of the FRN management team – Lesley, Helen and Craig. They all made it into the Resource Magazine Hot 100 list! And yes, so they should.

The Resource Magazine has published the Resource Hot 100 list for the past 13 years to (in the words of Resource Magazine) “celebrate the hard work of those in the waste and resources industry”. Craig and Helen have featured in the list in previous years but it is a first for Lesley who was thrilled by her inclusion.

Congratulations folks. You certainly deserve it!
