Apple House Director wins ‘Director of The Year’ Award!

Congratulations to our very own Romaine Lawson, Director of Operations, for winning the coveted ‘Director of The Year’ award at last week’s finals of the Venus Women in Business Awards.

“It’s been a great experience being part of the whole process for the Venus Awards. Not only did I meet such inspiring women during the the months leading up to the final who were also nominated, I was introduced to our fabulous sponsors and judges. If you know of someone that you would wish to nominate then I would highly recommend that you keep updated with the Venus website and put them forward when there are the nominations in your area.

To win was such an honour and a surprise considering the amazing women I was in the final with. I would like to say that I couldn’t carry out the work that I do without the tremendous support of my fellow director Jane Montrose, who is herself a former winner of a converted Venus Award of ‘Inspirational Woman of the year.’ Also key to keeping our head office running is Sarah-Jane who’s organisational planning there keeps Jane and I pointing in the right direction!
I am delighted in becoming the Director of the Year 2017 for my area and am looking forward to the National Finals in the summer of 2018!”
–Romaine Lawson, Director of Operations, Apple House care homes.

Mr. Anthony Marshall of Marshall Financial Solutions had the very difficult task of judging this category and narrowing the nominations down to just three finalists.  We are thrilled that he chose Romaine to win the prestigious award of Director of The Year.  The photo above shows Romaine collecting her award from Anthony at the Bournemouth International Centre last Thursday.

The Venus Awards were founded by Tara Howard, to celebrate the achievements of women in business. Venus have now grown to cover much of the country including London. 

Marshall Financial Solutions are an experienced insurance and mortgage broker, driven by excellent customer service.

Romaine’s fabulous glass trophy will now take pride of place in our HQ offices!
