Larkfleet Homes joint managing director Helen Hick was shortlisted for a prestigious award at the recent Women in Construction Business Awards.
Although ‘pipped at the post’ for the title by Jackie Biswell of Apex Roofing in Lowestoft, Helen was delighted to be one of just six finalists for the 'Business Leader of the Year' award.
Helen said: “To be amongst the finalists for this award is an honour. The number of women working in the construction industry is still relatively low. It is important that we encourage and celebrate the success of those who do choose any one of the very varied roles available to them. The Women in Construction Business Awards do just this and I was delighted to be part of the event.”
The award judges put Helen into the final six as a result of her growing role at Larkfleet Homes where she has worked alongside husband, Karl, to build the company to what it is today – one of the UK’s most successful private housebuilders. Helen was promoted to joint managing director last year and she continues to hold the position of human resources director for parent organisation The Larkfleet Group of Companies.
