Autocar has revealed the list of the top 100 ‘Great Women in the British Car Industry’.
Alison Jones, UK managing director and senior vice-president of the PSA Group, won Autocar’s Great Women in the British Car Industry 2020 initiative. Sue Robinson, NFDA Director, was featured in the list for the Executive category.
The initiative recognises the 100 most influential women in the British car industry today. The initiative was launched to inspire more women to consider a career in the industry and the event is held in partnership with the SMMT.
Chair of the judging panel and managing director of Autocar and Haymarket Automotive, Rachael Prasher, added: “The phenomenal success of all our Top 100 Great Women demonstrates the scope of career opportunities in the automotive world and the achievements possible. Each year, the talent pool gets bigger, making our job as judges harder, but it’s a fantastic sign of the breadth of talented women working in the industry.”
This year’s virtual event featured a panel debate with some of the industry’s biggest names chaired by Prasher, alongside appearances from PSA’s Linda Jackson, former England Women’s cricket captain Clare Connor and Vertu Motors CEO Robert Forrester.
