We are excited to announce that our chief executive Lisa Wainwright has been named CEO of the Year at the 2019 English Women’s Awards, supported by Creative Oceanic.

The Awards, which took place in Birmingham on Thursday 21 November 2019, honoured the talent and hard work of female professionals and entrepreneurs across the Midlands and South regions.

Commenting on the award, Lisa said: “I am very humbled to have won this prestigious award. It is a testament to the hard work, skill and talent of everyone, both the staff team and the Board of Directors, at the Sport and Recreation Alliance.

“It is fantastic to be a part of such a special event rewarding inspiring women and celebrating female successes. I hope my example inspires my two daughters as well as women coming through the pipeline as future CEOs so we can have a far more balanced workforce at this level in the sports sector.”

Irfan Younis, Creative Oceanic CEO, said: “Congratulations to all winners and finalists at the 2nd English Women’s Awards 2019. We were delighted to host exceptional finalists who make such brilliant role models and are leading a new generation of women and girls to greater success and open doors.
