Admiral CEO is winner of Best Creative category at WIN awards

Companies like Santander, Burberry and Royal Mail have female chief executives yet it is well documented that women do not hold the top jobs in business very often. In fact, there are only 3 female CEOs in the FTSE 100. So awards specifically for women in business have a valuable role to play in highlighting the female contribution to the economy.

Last month saw the return of the Women into the Network [WIN] Awards providing women entrepreneurs in the North East with an opportunity to be recognised for their achievements and hard work during the last twelve months. Admiral’s founder and managing director, Georgie Cameron, was named winner of the Best Creative category during a ceremony at The Hilton, Gateshead.

The annual event celebrates the best of female entrepreneurship in the North East. In spite of the difficult economic climate, over the past six months, Admiral has won new business contracts totalling over £250,000, appointed four new members of staff and was also named Outstanding Consultancy of the Year at the 10th Chartered Institute of Public Relations [CIPR] North East PRide Awards.

Commenting on the WIN award, Georgie Cameron said: “It’s an honour to be recognised as a leading business woman in the North East, especially when the region is full of exceptional talent.

“When I launched Admiral over a decade ago, I wanted to build a creative communications consultancy with deep rooted expertise in specialist sectors. This approach has paid dividends as Admiral continues to go from strength-to-strength despite the tough economic climate.

Georgie added: “The key to our success is innovation and the past twelve months have been particularly fruitful at Admiral.  We recently launched our unique social media measurement tool SociaLIGHT, which allows us to work with new and existing clients to improve their use of social media.”
