Jane named among construction industry’s top influencers

25 July 2022

Jane Cartwright, sales director for Cornwall, is one of just five national nominations shortlisted for ‘Client Influencer’ in the 2022 National Federation of Builders’ Top 100 Influencial Women in Construction awards.

An experienced and highly-skilled sales negotiator with a successful track-record in management and construction, Jane was promoted to regional sales director in December 2019.

Congratulating Jane on her nomination, regional chair, Liam Scott, said “this is an outstanding and richly-deserved nomination. Jane brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role of sales director and has been instrumental in our very strong performance as the region emerges from the pandemic.

“She demonstrates great leadership at a local level and is a source of inspiration and encouragement to the entire team in Cornwall and West Devon. To be named among the top five professionals in the national Client Influencer category is a fantastic achievement and it’s great to see Jane’s qualities being recognised in this way.”

Commenting on her nomination, Jane said: “I feel honoured and proud to have been shortlisted for this coveted industry award. The last two years have been extremely difficult as businesses and individuals alike have come to terms with unique conditions, with all manner of obstacles and restrictions to overcome.

“Despite these challenges, I have been privileged to work with an amazing team, creating wonderful new homes for people and families in Cornwall and West Devon. To be a part of this success story is very rewarding, and being nominated for such a prestigious award is really the icing on the cake.”
