Since Jessica Pasfield and her husband Dan started their business they haven’t looked back. They won the Service Excellence award last year, and innovation and goal setting is something that Jessica strives for in business every day. She is also currently in her first year as a plumbing apprentice and has already been approached by a number of ladies, both at industry events and online, interested in her journey and how they too could get involved.
“Building a company from the ground up is seriously hard work, we have hit the ground running and been non-stop so this award really does feel like we are doing the right thing and achieving our goals!”
Sonya Hughes first got involved in the industry when her son, who is now the director of the company, started his apprenticeship in 2011. She believes leadership stems from strength and collective positive steps forward within a company, from both the director and employees across to the customers and stakeholders. Ensuring customers are the priority and recognising, rewarding and valuing the hard work of employees are at the forefront of Sonya’s day to day business processes.
“I didn’t think that I’d ever receive an award or something as prestigious as this! It has also reignited my desire to keep investing in myself by means of education, training and industry based knowledge to help grow and diversify the company in all areas of the Plumbing and Gas industries.”
Finalist – Tiffany English, Modus Operandi
