Helen Wigglesworth is Co-Owner and Group Financial Director of Quadralene, the parent company of Dentisan, leading UK manufacturer of infection control products and the company is delighted to announce that Helen was recently shortlisted for the Vitalise ‘Business Woman of the Year 2013 Award’.
The Vitalise Awards are sponsored by a number of large businesses including Lloyds Bank, British Airways and the Hilton group and celebrate women’s achievement within industry. Helen made the final shortlist of seven candidates, who were then subject to a rigorous interview by a panel of six judges, chaired by Lord Digby Jones, former Director General of the CBI. The winner was announced at an awards luncheon, held in Birmingham in October and hosted by the inspirational Dame Kelly Holmes.
Helen’s nomination for the Vitalise Awards was made by a Regional Director of the CBI, and came as a complete surprise to her: “I am very proud to have been in the company of some outstanding candidates, during what has been a very interesting and worthwhile journey. As a business we have come a long way since we expanded into the healthcare market six years ago and thanks to our ability to intelligently work our way through a number of challenges our team has achieved a great deal.”
Helen is a great exponent of the company ethos of ‘business for the common good’ and is heavily involved with a number of charitable causes, including helping education in Pakistan; micro-finance in Sierra Leone; a community bus project and community transformation in Romania.
