Melissa Rees, Head of Compliance and HR at independent funder Henry Howard Finance, has been shortlisted for a Welsh Women’s Award 2019.
The black-tie event will be held at the Exchange Hotel in Cardiff, on Wednesday 3 April, when meritorious female role models will gather together to celebrate their achievements.
The Welsh Women’s Awards 2019 aim to acknowledge and celebrate the success of women entrepreneurs, business women, professionals, civil servants, women in uniform, charity workers and many more that contribute in making Wales a greater place to live in. The awards embody the continuing strength, grit and determination of women, honouring those who continue to thrive, excelling them at the forefront of their industries.
Melissa says ‘I am thrilled to be nominated for this award and very proud to be working for an organisation that places gender equality high on the cultural agenda and advocates women achieving senior leadership appointments in Wales’.
A Spokesperson for the Welsh Women’s Awards 2019 said: “These awards aim to celebrate the power and breadth of talent that every woman hides in herself and the hard work of female heroes that often remains unrecognised.
“We are very happy to see the huge engagement of the public who went behind our nomination process to vote for their favourite personalities that have followed their dreams and achieved their goals.
“We hope that these finalists will inspire other women to follow their steps and we can’t wait to welcome meritorious individuals in a memorable ceremony and celebrate the winners with them in an enjoyable event. We wish all the finalists the best of luck.”
