The head of business development at contractor J Tomlinson, Nikki Foreman, has been named as Female Executive of the Year at the Nottingham Post Women in Business Awards 2015.

Nikki, who joined the construction company three years ago, took the title after becoming a crucial member of the team delivering business growth for J Tomlinson over the last 12 months and for the future, which has resulted in the greatest level of turnover and profit (last financial year) that the business has ever had.

The awards, which celebrate the outstanding achievements of female entrepreneurs and professionals, fly the flag for women in business and create female role models to inspire future generations of women.

“I am so excited to have won the title of Female Executive of the Year at the Nottingham Post Women in Business Awards,” said Nikki. “The standard of nominations and entries in all categories was amazingly high and I’d like to congratulate all the shortlisted contenders. Their stories and achievements illustrate the brilliant female talent that we have in Nottinghamshire.

“At J Tomlinson, I work alongside a strong team of supportive professionals, and this recognition in the Women in Business Awards is just as much about them, as it is about me. I hope this award will encourage and inspire women to consider a career in construction, which is a sector where women are still under-represented.”

A member of Women In Property, to promote more women into the construction industry, and a council member for Nottingham City Business Club, to make Nottingham a world class city for business and trade, Nikki is also a volunteer for Inspiring the Future Campaign – a campaign to coach, mentor and inspire the next generation.

Hundreds of people attended the Nottingham Post Women in Business Awards 2015 ceremony at the Crowne Plaza in Nottingham, where 12 awards were presented.

J Tomlinson, which has its head office in Beeston near Nottingham, offers services in construction, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical engineering, and facilities management, and works across a range of sectors including social housing, emergency services, healthcare, education, retail and commercial property.

The firm operates across the East Midlands, West Midlands and Yorkshire, employs 383 people, and has been named in Deloitte’s Businesses Leading Britain 2014 report, which provides insights into the UK’s 1,000 fastest-growing businesses with annual revenues between £30 million and £1 billion.
