I am so proud and overwhelmed to have won the Woman Who – Excels in Business award and still can’t quite believe it. It’s the first time in my career that I have been up for a personal award and to be nominated by colleagues and friends is an honour in itself. Then to win and be recognised in such a way has given me an amazing sense of achievement and put a big smile on my face.” (June Picken, Coombe Abbey)

June Picken began her role as Director of Sales at Coombe Abbey in April 2012 but in the short time since, has been a major orchestrator in establishing the period Warwickshire hotel as a venue of quality and distinction.

The importance June places on building and enhancing positive relationships with clients, local groups and the public is among the largest contributing factors to Coombe’s success since 2012.

But growing Coombe’s business isn’t June’s only priority – she has also invested in growing and supporting the Coventry and Warwickshire region as a whole.

And her hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Whilst Coombe Abbey’s turnover has increased by 50 per cent since she took on the role, it is the last year which has really seen her efforts come into fruition.

Congratulations June on being a Woman Who…Excels in Business Winner 2016.
