Autocar’s 100 most influential British women in the car industry were revealed on Wednesday 20 June. Linda Jackson Citroen Global CEO, earned the top accolade. NFDA Director Sue Robinson was amongst the winners in the executive category. Also from the retail side of the industry, Jardine Motors Group HR director, Clare Martin, won in the Human Resources category.
The Great British Women in the Car Industry’s 100-strong ‘power-list’ looks to celebrate success and encourage more women into the car industry at all levels and in all sectors, from purchasing to product development.
Receiving the overall award, as well as winning the ‘executive category’ honour, Jackson commented: “It’s an honour and testament to the hard work from everyone at Citroën that has helped build on what has been such a successful few years.
“There is a huge wealth of talent in the sector and it’s a truly exciting industry to be a part of, especially as automotive is one of the most pioneering industries when it comes to future technology. I hope this Autocar award inspires even more women to pursue a career in this industry at all levels.”
The event, organised by Autocar in association with the Society for Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), is sponsored by BMW, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, MINI, Nissan and Toyota.
It featured keynote and inspiring speeches from Jackson and Olympic-hockey great Karen Brown, as well as a discussion panel moderated by the chair of the Great British Women judging panel, Rachael Prasher, managing director of Haymarket Automotive.
