Heald Director Shortlisted for Three Women in Business Awards
Heald Ltd company director Debbie Heald (pictured with partner and co-director Rod Heald) has been nominated in three categories of the 2015 Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards.
Debbie has been shortlisted for Yorkshire and North East region for International Business of the Year, SME Business of the Year, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Business of the Year.
Debbie said: “I’m delighted and proud that our work has been recognised in this way. This isn’t just about me – it’s a reflection of the hard work and innovation of everybody at Heald.”
The Women in Business Awards, sponsored by HSBC, are regarded as the premier forum for recognising and rewarding talented businesswomen across the UK.
The Yorkshire and North East winners will be announced at a regional awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Newcastle on 29 September.
The regional winners will then go on to compete in the national awards which will be announced at a glittering final on 20 November at the Queens Hotel in Leeds.
Karen Boswell, managing director of Hitachi Rail and chair of the judging panel, added: “The standard of entries for this year’s Women in Business Awards was outstanding which made selecting the shortlist extremely difficult.
“This is a testament to the high quality of our female business leaders across the regions who are helping the region’s economy grow.”
