Dr Sharon Redrobe OBE has won the prestigious Vitalise Business Woman of the Year Award 2015 in recognition of the remarkable difference she is making to animal conservation. She was one of the six finalists in her category.

Speaking of her award, Sharon says, “I’m so delighted and honoured to win this prestigious award in recognition of the great work we are doing at Twycross Zoo. I have the privilege of leading an outstanding team of enthusiastic and talented people, together with a supportive Board of Trustees. The last few years have been challenging, so we are all delighted that the new Business plan and Masterplan for Twycross Zoo – putting the animals first – is delivering increased visitor numbers and we believe that our continued investment in the habitats on site will lead us from strength to strength. This all caught the attention of the judges and I am honoured to receive this award for the whole of Twycross Zoo.”

The Vitalise Women of the Year Luncheon & Awards celebrate the achievements of exceptional women nationwide – both in the world of business and personal achievement.
