CEMEX’s very own Christina Wilcox has won the prestigious ‘Talent in Logistics Award for Apprentice of the Year’ against tough opposition in the finals.
The Talent in Logistics Conference and Awards event held at the Telford International Centre is dedicated to the training, development, recognition and retention of the 2.2m+ people working in transport, warehousing and logistics in the UK and Ireland.
Christina was our first female apprentice on last year’s DGV Apprenticeship programme and has now successfully graduated to become the first company female driver at our Rugby Cement Works logistics operation. Christina is now 22 years old and fully proficient driving and delivering 44 tonne bulk cement tankers. She has paved the way for women in logistics breaking new ground and we are very proud of her achievement.
Christina said she was shocked but delighted to win the award both for her and other young aspiring drivers and that it wouldn’t have been possible without the excellent apprenticeship scheme that CEMEX have now offered three years in succession, run by Carl Milton.
Barry Flitton, Cement Operation Manager, was with Christina at the awards. He commented: “It was a great achievement for Christina and the Rugby team and great recognition for the work and commitment going into developing young people and talent in the company.”
