Freeths LLP, leading law firm and long-standing sponsor of the national Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards, is delighted to announce that Jenny Johnston, Training and Development Manager at KMF Group Ltd is a finalist for the prestigious Business Woman of the Year Award and the Freeths Woman with Edge Award.

2019 has been a record-breaking year for the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards, with the greatest number of nominations ever received in this category. Over 500 women were nominated, making the judges job of narrowing the field down to just 10 finalists, a massive challenge.

In addition to sponsoring the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards, Freeths is proud to announce they will also be sponsoring this year’s Woman with Edge Award. Freeths will appoint the Woman with Edge Award to a business leader who has demonstrated the courage to challenge and make a real difference.

Peter Gavin, Partner at Freeths Stoke said: “We are proud to be a long standing sponsor of the Women of the Year Awards, with our Freethinking approach we actively encourage the celebration of women’s achievements and promote diversity. More than ever before, women are taking up leadership roles in business and making their voices heard. We are delighted that a local Staffordshire business woman has been recognised for her achievements”.

The 2019 winner will be announced to over 550 guests at this year’s Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards, which takes place on 25th October at Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
