Gill Kelly, Managing Director of M&Y Maintenance and Construction, has been nominated for the Most Inspiring Role Model award at the Inspire Awards 2019.
Gill was shortlisted for her work in the male dominated construction sector, transforming M&Y Maintenance and Construction from a business with a £2m turnover in 2009 to a turnover of £32m in 2019. Gill has also spearheaded The Regenda Group’s LEAD programme, delivering coaching and training to staff across the business.
Gill Kelly, Managing Director of M&Y Maintenance and Construction, said: “I am delighted to be nominated for an Inspire Award.
“Since entering the world of construction, I have worked hard to empower other women and demonstrate that you can be successful in a male dominated sector.
“Through hard work, I have been able to transform my family maintenance business into a multi-million-pound organisation that is currently building homes across the north west.
“I hope that my journey can inspire the next generation of women in the sector.”
On the night, Gill Kelly will also be supporting her colleagues at The Regenda Group owned Positive Footprints. The Burnley based personal development programme provider has been nominated for Most Inspiring Training Programme.
Award winners will be announced at a glittering award ceremony at the Hilton Hotel, Manchester, on 5 June 2019.
