The Chief Executive of the Rochester Bridge Trust has been named as a finalist in a national award scheme.

As the first woman and the first engineer to have held the post of Bridge Clerk in the Trust’s 617-year history, Sue was shortlisted for her strong leadership, which has transformed every aspect of the organisation’s work since her appointment in 2006.
Sue commented: “It is an honour to have my efforts recognised and be selected as one of five finalists in the Principal of the Year category.”
The four other people shortlisted in the category are: Jeanette Allen, The Horse Trust; Sue Farrington Smith, Brain Tumour Research; Hilda Hayo, Dementia UK; and Dr Beverley Jacobson, Kisharon.
