Heron Bros is delighted to announce that our CR Manager, Shauna Young, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the European Women In Construction & Engineering (WICE) Awards.

Shauna has been selected from over 400 entries as a finalist for the ‘Best Woman in Business Development’ category due to her truly exceptional individual contributions to the construction and engineering industries.

Celebrating its 5th year, the European Women In Construction & Engineering Awards is the most prestigious event celebrating the achievements of women in these sectors.​

Women represent only 11% of the construction workforce in the UK and most of these jobs are office based and only 2% work in manual jobs.

Noel Mullan, Commercial Director at Heron Bros commented:

“We are very proud that Shauna has been shortlisted as ‘Best Woman in Business Development’ in the 2019 European Women In Construction & Engineering Awards. As a finalist, Shauna is deservedly recognised among the most exemplary women within construction and engineering across Europe.”

“Shauna’s innovative approach to Business Development has made her a unique asset to our organisation. Shauna is passionate about improving the image of construction, building relationships and engaging with prospective and current clients to win and retain business. We wish her the best of luck on the WICE Awards judging day on 25 April 2019.”

The aim of the awards is to make these industries more enticing to women. To create role models for women considering a career in these sectors, while encouraging companies to employ and train more women in these industries.

The Awards Dinner is set to take place on 21st Of May 2019, at the Hilton Park Lane, London. Learn more about the WICE Awards here: wiceawards.com
