Samantha Bunyan, Co-Founder & Head of Industry Engagement at Cecence, was recognised by industry peers and named The Best Woman in Aerospace at the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium's inaugural awards ceremony in Hampshire last month.
Samantha said; “I’m hugely flattered to receive the award and would like to thank all those who nominated me - I hope this will encourage more women into the industry.”
More than 100 delegates attended the black-tie function, which was organised by the consortium, which is one of the longest established aerospace and defence trade associations in the UK.
David Barnes, the FAC CEO, and its Chairman Sir Donald Spiers, presented the trophies.
David said: “We have been championing our aerospace sector for many years and it seemed overdue to celebrate it with awards. We convened an expert panel of judges to make decisions in four categories. Our inaugural ceremony proved a success with the membership and by the number of nominations received we can say the awards were hotly contested”.
