Our Mechanical Services Director, Trish Short, was thrilled to discover that she has been nominated for a prestigious award.

Trish, who oversees the HVAC side of our business, has been named as a finalist in the East Midlands Chamber’s 2019 Enterprising Women Awards.

Every year, the Chamber organises the awards to highlight and celebrate the achievements of some of the top women in business across the region.

By highlighting their contribution and telling their stories, the awards aim to inspire other women to pursue their business dream.

Trish is one of 35 shortlisted finalists at this year’s awards, which is split into eight different categories.

She will be vying for the Female Employee of the Year honour, which is sponsored by Leicester-based commercial building contractor, Smallman & Sons.

She said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have made the shortlist for this category. There are some very strong fellow finalists from a variety of different backgrounds and businesses, so I’m sure that the competition is going to be tough.

“Good luck to everyone and fingers crossed for March, when I look forward to attending the awards dinner to see if I have won.”

Trish will discover her fate at a gala awards dinner on 8 March at Derbyshire County Cricket Club, which will also mark International Women’s Day.

Keep your eyes posted on our blog and social channels as we’ll bring you updates from the event.
