Wendy Hall wins McKesson Award for Excellence

Wendy Hall, head of legal and compliance officer at Celesio UK, has been recognised at the 2016 McKesson General Counsel Awards for her exceptional contribution to the organisation.


The GCO (McKesson’s General Counsel Organisation) is made up of legal; compliance, regulatory and ethics; public affairs; and the corporate secretary teams. Six employees from these departments based around the McKesson family of businesses have been honoured for their excellent service and outstanding achievements throughout this year.

The awards ceremony took place in Washington in October and was attended by McKesson CEO John Hammergren. The judging panel was made up of a number of senior McKesson business leaders, and the banquet was hosted by McKesson’s General Counsel, Lori Schechter.

Wendy Hall, who has worked at Celesio UK since 2008, was described by the judges as: “One of the most sought after contributors for strategic projects and other challenging assignments.” They also praised her broad range of skills: “Her problem solving goes above and beyond her job description and she offers great commercial acumen, on top of her strong legal expertise.”

Wendy said of her achievement: “It’s fantastic to be honoured at such a prestigious event. I’m delighted to have been nominated and feel immensely proud of the award. There is a great culture of recognising excellent work at McKesson so it’s really satisfying to be a part of that.”
