Nominations for the Barbara Cox Woman of the Year Award, which honours an inspirational woman within the automotive industry, close tomorrow (January 24).

Now in its second year, the award is named after Barbara Cox, the business pioneer who served as director of Cox Enterprises, Cox Automotive’s parent company in the USA, and will be presented to a woman who demonstrates a commitment to innovation, leadership or community.

Alison Fisher, chief people officer at Cox Automotive, said: “Promoting diversity in our industry is a key part of our commitment to building high performing teams at Cox Automotive. The Barbara Cox Woman of the Year Award will shine a light on successful women that have made a significant impact on the industry, and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

“The award is part of our fantastic Women With Drive programme, which offers professional and personal development, peer-to-peer mentoring and networking opportunities for people across the automotive sector.”

The nominations will be reviewed by a panel of judges that includes Fleet News’ deputy editor Sarah Tooze, Cox Automotive UK’s CEO Martin Forbes, Marshall Motor Group’s CEO Daksh Gupta, and last year’s winner JCT600’s Beryl Carney.

The winner will be announced on March 6, 2020 at a special Women with Drive event to celebrate International Women’s Day. As well as the award, she will receive £5,000 to spend on her own personal development.
