Fleet Logistics’ Sue Branston named Everywoman awards finalist
The awards, now in their 12th year, recognise the efforts of woman within the transport and logistics sector in the UK. For 2019, the awards programme will see two winners per category – one industry ‘Leader’ with a breadth of experience and one individual at any stage of their career, who is going ‘Above and Beyond’ in their business sector.
Branston has been shortlisted in the Leader category in the Supply Chain Award for women who are innovating and excelling in their role within the supply chain environment, where she will be up against other finalists from Unipart Rail, CEVA Logistics and the Co-operative Group.
This year’s event will also include an ‘Industry Champion’ Award that will recognise a woman contributing to the progress of other women, while a ‘Male Agent of Change’ will be recognised for his commitment to gender diversity. For the first time in 2019, the industry’s fresh talent will also be celebrated by the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ Award.
The winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony in London on 13 June 2019 at the Grosvenor House hotel.
Commenting on her shortlisting, Branston, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the automotive and fleet sector, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted to be shortlisted for these prestigious awards, which recognise the crucial roles that women play within modern business.”
