International Women’s Day

Celebrated since 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women all over the world, acknowledging that ‘A balanced world is a better world’.

Pattonair recognises the importance of providing opportunities for further development for all employees. With a diverse workforce and inclusive culture, 40% of employees are female and opportunities to achieve success are available for everyone.

Louise Tommasi, Chief People Director, said; “We encourage our employees to increase their skills and knowledge as part of their development at Pattonair. Today, in celebration of International Women’s Day, we are celebrating two colleagues who have achieved great success here.”

Emma Doyley, IT Security Controller

Emma joined Pattonair in October 2017 as IT Security Controller, bringing a wealth of experience in support roles and moving into an area of IT that she aimed towards.

Emma said, “The best thing about working at Pattonair is that it’s never quiet, and it can be challenging but it means that there’s always something new to learn.

“I’ve been leading Pattonair’s journey to improve cyber and information security. I’ve loved driving changes and seeing the improvements in the awareness and knowledge within the rest of the business.

“Last year, I was delighted to learn that I’d been nominated for a Women in IT Excellence Award in the category of Rising Star. Although I didn’t walk away with the trophy on the night, it is humbling to know that my managers have the pride and confidence in me to put me forward for such a prestigious award,” said Emma. The support and encouragement I’ve received from Pattonair means I can continue to progress my knowledge, skills and career.”

Amardeep Spencer, Head of Bids Management

Amardeep Spencer joined Pattonair in October 2014 as Bid Planning Manager to manage global strategic opportunities, and quickly progressed, becoming Head of Bid Management.

Her thirst for knowledge led her to sign up for the Executive MBA at the University of Warwick Business School, graduating with distinction in January 2019.

“The past 3 years have been testing at times, juggling work, studying and my personal life but at the same time, they have been rewarding.” Amardeep explains.

“I have grown in many ways and my perspective has matured. Be it through a professional qualification, on the job, or working with experienced peers, I’m motivated by knowledge and developing new skills. I’m now celebrating all of the learning that is yet to come through applying my leadership skills and academic theories. Thank you Pattonair for the support you have provided and for investing in my future.”
