Finalists Kirstie Bull and Vicky Doyle were invited to attend the prestigious everywoman Awards in recognition of their contribution to the transport and logistics industry.
Our Operations Manager Kirstie Bull won the Above & Beyond Customer/Passenger Award at the virtual everywoman in Transport and Logistics Award ceremony (Tuesday 6 October).
Kirstie won the award for excelling in her role working for customers in transport, logistics and freight.
Kirstie joined the business as a bus driver at Lewes Road depot in 1998 and was recently promoted to Operations Manager (Designate) at our Conway Street Depot in Hove managing more than 200 drivers.
Our Head of Marketing and Communications Vicky Doyle, was a runner-up for the Industry Champion Award, an award that goes to a woman who is championing the progress of women working in transport and logistics.
Our Managing Director Martin Harris said: "I’m delighted to have two great ambassadors and important role models to so many others in the business. Kirstie has spent the past two decades developing her career at Brighton & Hove Buses and working her way up through the ranks. Judges praised the culture of trust she has cultivated by having an open-door policy and for being passionate about inclusivity and playing a key role in our Diversity & Inclusion Forum and rightly so. Vicky has played a significant role in articulating the company's mission in respect of serving its customers and its communities which the judges had particularly high praise for.”
Martin added: “We will continue to push for a more diverse and inclusive workforce and keep getting better at backing women equally in their careers with us.”
