Women make their mark in the City

10 December 2009

At The Women in the City Awards last week the Facilities Management category was won by Louise Rushmer of Royal Sun Alliance while the Property category was won by CBRE’s Charlotte Eddington

Facilities management was equal to other professions in the City of London at last weeks Women in the City Awards held at the Plaisterers’ Hall. Louise Rushmer, currently acting head of Property and FM at Royal Sun Alliance (RSA) was awarded the Women in the City Award for the Facilities Management category. She heads a team of 30 plus service partners based at the company’s UK headquarters. Her career began at the Royal National Theatre where she became Deputy Head of Catering before moving to financial printers Donnelley managing its European HQ. Before joining RSA she was Service Excellence Manager at Barclays Wealth.
Also a winner was Charlotte Eddington of CBRE who was awarded the prize for the Property category.  She heads up the CBRE Energy and Sustainability Services in EMEA, managing a team of engineers, sustainability consultants and energy managers. She chairs a number of sustainability working groups and she on various bodies including the UK Green Building Council, the British Property Federation and the CBI.
The Facilities Management Association is among the sponsors of this event and both these winners were hosted, with other guests by the FMA’s Mary Taffler. The Awards were established by Gwen Rhys, the founder and director of Women in the City and this lunch was the seventh such event.  The group was formed to counter the negative environment many women felt working in the City, and to create networks of other women to raise confidence and personal and professional profiles.
The Women in the City Awards are open to women based in Canary Wharf, the City and West End working in specific professional sectors including accountancy, financial services, insurance, law, management consultancy, property and facilities management.  The winners needed to not only fulfill their professional role but also demonstrate their support for the development on women in their teams and building networks on behalf of themselves and other women.
