Traveline Cymru are “delighted” with the success of their Director Jo Foxall, who has won a business award, recognising her as a “dedicated director.”
Managing Director Jo Foxall won the Young Director category at the prestigious Institute of Directors Wales Awards, beating stiff competition from other Directors across Wales.
The IoD Wales Awards, which celebrate “the best of Welsh businesses and leadership”, were held on Friday, May 17th in Sophia Gardens Cricket Ground and sponsored by Cardiff Business School.
Directors from two ‘leading’ Welsh Tech companies were among 13 Welsh Directors celebrated for their ‘exemplary work’ at IoD Wales’ Director of the Year Awards 2019, which were attended by The Rt Hon Liam Fox MP, Trade Secretary and The Rt Hon Alun Cairns MP, Secretary of State for Wales.
Jo Foxall said: “I am absolutely delighted to have won the Young Director category of the IoD awards.
“After starting at PTI Cymru in a junior role, I worked through the ranks to successfully take the helm in July 2017.
“Although this award is a personal triumph, I can attribute it to the work and experiences gained at PTI Cymru so I hope this win will also raise the profile of the organisation, which works on innovative, pioneering and inclusive projects.
“We’re looking forward to a successful and exciting future.”
Robert Lloyd Griffiths, Director of the Institute of Directors in Wales, said: “Despite really challenging times and the uncertainty of Brexit’s impact on business; directors across Wales are really making their mark in guiding and inspiring their staff while supplying or providing really innovative products and services.”
