Pendragon PLC Marketing and Communications Director Victoria Finn, is amongst a host of influential women attending this year's Autocar Great British Women in the Car Industry - Rising Stars event, after being shortlisted as one of the top 100 most influential women in the car industry last year.
Victoria was shortlisted in 2016 in the communications category for her work leading the marketing team at Pendragon, overseeing activity for Stratstone and Evans Halshaw, as well as the company's fleet service Pendragon Vehicle Management, and parts dealer Quickco. Joining the company in 2006, Victoria has worked her way through the ranks and was appointed as Marketing & Communications Director in January 2017.
The Great British Women in the Car Industry event, this year held at Twickenham Stadium, will celebrate rising female stars in the automotive industry, as well as highlighting the range of careers available within the industry. Experts from Ford and Jaguar Land Rover will be among the line-up of guest speakers, and attendees will enjoy discussions and Q&A sessions on a range of topics, including progression in the automotive industry.
"Being shortlisted amongst some of the industry's most influential women last year was an honour, I'm pleased to be attending this year's event to again celebrate the rising female stars breaking through in the industry.
Initiatives like these are an excellent way of showing women the wealth of opportunities available, and giving them the support to progress in their careers.
At Pendragon we celebrate equal opportunities for all, with many women occupying leadership roles across the business. Wherever possible we promote internally and offer support at all levels to learn and develop team member's careers."
