Lingerie expert Geraldine Hurd, owner of Betty and Belle in Altrincham, has been named as the Specsavers Everywoman Entrepreneur of the year. These prestigious awards recognise the achievements of dynamic women leading the way in the retail industry, and excelling in their careers.
Geraldine accepted the award at a glittering ceremony at London’s Savoy Hotel. The event’s keynote speaker was Karren Brady, Lord Sugar’s right hand woman on The Apprentice.
Speaking about her win Geraldine said: “I am over the moon to receive this award, it makes all the hard work seem worthwhile. I hope it inspires more women with a real passion for retail to take the leap into setting up their own business. I would also like to thank all of my team, who have proven that good old fashioned service is still relevant in today’s world.”
Geraldine fought off stiff competition from across the UK, and was one of only three nominees from the Noth West to make it into the finals.
Dame Mary Perkins MBE, founder of Specsavers commented: “I congratulate all the winners in this year’s awards – to come this far shows commitment, resourcefulness and true retail flair – each is a shining example to all women in business.”
