A managing director at a Marlow-based firm has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Women in Business awards.

Helen Todd, MD at Stubbings Property Marketing, in Dean Street, is one of five finalists in the Woman Business Owner of the Year category.

Judges were looking for “entrepreneurial women” who have founded and run their own company, women who have shown “exceptional abilities” in mentoring other women and women who have helped their business achieve “significant” results in the past year.

Speaking about her nomination, Ms Todd, who joined Stubbings in 2009, said: “It is a real honour to be shortlisted for such an important award.

“Within the property sector in particular, there is a recognised shortage of women both joining the industry and reaching senior positions.

“Awards such as this and the recognition they offer can play a significant role in both raising awareness and hopefully inspiring women, in all stages of their careers.”
