Laura McBrown, the managing director of G&B Electronics, a contract electronics manufacturer based in Bordon has won a prestigious regional business award at this year’s EEF Future Manufacturing Awards.
Laura won the Leadership Award, sponsored by Liberty House Group, which celebrates the achievements of outstanding manufacturing leaders and the significant contribution they make to their business and UK manufacturing.
Laura was up against stiff competition from individuals from a range of innovative businesses - small and large - from across the region. She was selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics after impressing them with the way she has set a clearer vision and introduced values that have transformed the culture of the business since becoming MD.
With the regional title now secured, Laura McBrown will now go on to find out if she has won the national title at an awards gala dinner in London in January next year.
Laura McBrown, Managing Director at G&B Electronic Design, says: “Manufacturers work hard to ensure the success of their business, so I am honoured to have been recognised in this way. This award is not about individual effort though, it is for the hard working and talented team that I work with, without whom this achievement would not have been possible.
“It’s fantastic to be recognised by my peers in this way and I’m really looking forward to the national finals in January to see how I measure up against leaders from across the rest of the UK.”
Douglas Dawson, CEO of Liberty Industries Group Says: “Strong and dynamic leadership pushes companies to take advantage of opportunities, such as those arising from the fourth industrial revolution, and towards greater efficiency and productivity for the entire business. This award is justly deserved and Laura should be applauded for her efforts. We wish Laura the best of luck for the national finals.”
