Held on Thursday 23 March at Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham, the awards will honour the brightest talent and outstanding achievements of companies shaping the North East automotive industry, while, at the same time, raising funds for a schools’ STEM project.
She will go against Lily Turner, Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK and Molly Craggs, Envision AESC UK.
Paul Butler, chief executive of the NEAA, said: “The awards provide the opportunity to fly the flag for the region and, just as importantly, to remind ourselves, how far we have come as a sector and that we have turned potential into a powerful reality.”
“The region is home to a world class automotive sector and it continues to be one of the most productive manufacturing sectors in Europe. As such, the opportunities for younger generations are vast and we must continue to work together to attract them whilst they are at school and making career choices.
The company winners will receive a cheque which they will then donate to a STEM engagement programme or local school in support of an automotive or science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related project, which helps to raise awareness of the importance of STEM and the attractiveness of a career within the automotive sector.
