A MARKETING specialist from Witham has been recognised for her commitment to the building materials industry.

National trade body The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and Builders’ Merchants News (BMN), have joined forces to identify the top 100 young achievers across the multi-billion-pound building materials sector and shine a light on the brightest stars of the future.

Louise Parkes, marketing manager at Collier and Catchpole in Witham has been nominated for the accolade on her achievements within her career so far and having a positive impact in the sector.

She said: "I am over the moon to have been nominated as a top 100 young achiever.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Collier and Catchpole for their endless support and guidance.

“Marketing is much easier when you have a great team behind you.” 

The Top 100 Young Achievers programme follows last year’s Top 100 Merchant Influencers and Top 100 Supplier Influencers in 2022 and 2023.

Chief executive of the BMF John Newcomb said: “The BMF is an active supporter of young people working within the building materials supply sector and this initiative celebrates the contributions of those who will carry the industry forward in the future and work to make a material difference.

“After the success of our previous initiatives, we are delighted to be partnering with BMN to highlight the achievements of the Top 100 Young Achievers.

“This accolade reflects the positive influence Louise has had on the people around her and the wider building materials industry.”
