Winners are nominated by their peers in the industry and then selected by an independent panel of judges.
Wendy Harris, VP of European Sales at CarGurus, commented: “It’s a huge privilege to have been honoured at the very first Inspiring Automotive Women Awards. The automotive industry has evolved so much in recent years, and it’s great to be a part of initiatives to highlight the vital role women are playing in making that happen.
“It’s always an honour to be recognised for your work, but to be recognised and nominated by your peers makes it even more special.”
Julia Muir, Founder of the UK Automotive 30% Club, added: “All of our fabulous award winners have demonstrated that they are making a significant contribution to their business. However they are also committed to inspiring other women to progress or encouraging leaders to create inclusive working environments within which women will thrive, and they are personally involved in activities to show that the automotive sector is a positive career choice for women.”

How CarGurus Works:
CarGurus helps car shoppers search local car listings and quickly find great deals from top-rated dealers. Every day, the company analyses millions of data points on hundreds of thousands of UK car listings to calculate each car’s Instant Market Value (IMV) or fair retail price. This data is used in combination with dealership ratings from other shoppers to rank and rate available cars results based on the quality of the deal: Great, Good, Fair, High or Overpriced. The site also provides transparency on how long the car has been on the forecourt and if it’s had a price drop. Consumers can contact dealers directly.
