The fifth annual Leicestershire Live Women in Business Awards took place at the Leicester City FC King Power Stadium earlier this month, to ‘celebrate the achievements of the most successful female entrepreneurs and professionals across the region’.
Kate, the first ever female managing director of Leicestershire-based Ibstock, picked up the ‘Women in Construction’ Award at the ceremony for her ongoing contribution to the UK’s construction market.
With 20 years leadership experience, Kate was recognised by the judges for being one of only a handful of women that has reached the top of a largely male dominated construction industry.
Kate said: “It’s very humbling to be recognised with such a prestigious award so I am absolutely delighted to have won. It makes me extremely proud that I am having a positive impact and helping to inspire more and more women to reach their goals, whether this is in construction or other industry sectors.”
