Deputy CEO of Patron Business Wins Second Industry Award

A Deputy CEO has won her second award of the year at the recent Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) awards.
Diane Ward, from Carlton Forest Group, was recognised in the category of "Diversity Champion" for her commitment to encouraging, supporting, and giving options for females to enjoy careers in the industry about which she is so passionate.

The award follows a win earlier this summer when Diane was recognised as Industry Champion at the Everywoman Transport and Logistics Awards.

Carlton Forest Group has been a long-standing patron of Doncaster Chamber, with CEO Mark Pepper having served on the board for the last three years and the business is the current sponsor of the popular Women in Business lunches.

Mark Pepper, CEO, Carlton Forest Group commented; “I am so pleased and proud for Diane – this recognition for a long and dedicated career is truly deserved.

“Diane has made an impression on the lives of so many over the last forty years and continues to shape the future of Carlton Forest Group and its valued team members.”

Diane joined fellow finalists and industry colleagues at The Londoner Hotel for the 30th CILT Awards for Excellence which celebrates and recognises excellence in logistics and transport including talented colleagues and pioneering businesses all striving to do their best and be their best.

“What a year it has been and what a lovely surprise it was to be receive this award,” said Diane. “I am truly humbled and will continue to encourage openness and inclusion for all in our industry to ensure the brightest talent get the recognition they deserve.”
