Gabrielle McNamara, general manager at family-owned Leonard Dews jewellers in Blackpool, has won the Leadership prize at the inaugural Sub36 Awards.
Sub36 Awards were organised by Lancashire Business View to celebrate and encourage the next generation of entrepreneurs and business stars in the north west. The awards are open to anyone under the age of 36, from across the region.
Ms McNamara began working at Leonard Dews four years ago as a sales consultant, and has worked her way up to general manager.
“It’s a fantastic business,” she says. “I’m passionate about letting people know about the amazing things going on here at the moment, and what we have planned for the future.”
Leonard Dews in Blackpool, owned and run by Michael Hyman and his family, has been trading in fine jewellery and watches including Patek Philippe since 1877.
