Congratulations to McGee’s Project Engineer, Michelle Mackey, who has been selected as a Finalist for ‘Best Woman Contractor’ in the 2018 European Women In Construction & Engineering Awards.

This year’s WICE Awards involved an unprecedented level of participation attracting approximately 350 nominations from 10 European countries.  The finalists were selected by a panel of 60 distinguished judges.

Finalists will now be invited to judging day on 26th April where the judges will determine an overall winner in each category. We would like to wish Michelle the best of luck and look forward to attending the awards ceremony on 24th May at the Hilton Bankside, London, where some of the most exemplary women in construction and engineering will join together to celebrate excellence.

John McGee, Director, commented:

“I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle for 14 years.  During Michelle’s time at McGee, she has grown with the company to maximise her potential.  She is a role model for anyone considering a career in the construction industry and is demonstrating that it is a great industry for women to be in, offering unrivalled scope for career progression.  When you get to know Michelle you can instantly see why she is such a great role model – her passion, determination and hard-working approach is hugely inspiring.

“It has been my pleasure to nominate Michelle for the ‘Best Woman Contractor’ Award and it is a fantastic achievement for Michelle to reach the finals – we will all be rooting for her to take home this prestigious award.”

Celebrating its 4th year, the European Women In Construction & Engineering Awards is the most prestigious event celebrating the achievements of women in these sectors.
