Hitchin woman named rising star of manufacturing world
A WOMAN from Comet country has been announced as one of the 30 young rising stars of the manufacturing world by business minister Mark Prisk.
Lizzie White, from Hitchin, who is a production planning manager at AkzoNobel, was selected by a panel of expert judges to represent the campaign Make it in Great Britain 30 Under 30.
The Make it in Britain campaign is run by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills and aims to challenge outdated opinions of the UK manufacturing industry and dispel the myth that Britain doesn’t make anything anymore, as well as encouraging young people to consider a career in a UK industry.
The ex-Hitchin Girls student will have a special role in engaging with other young people, to ensure that the next generation is aware of the jobs and careers in the industry.
On her achievements, the 26-year-old said: “I am really proud to have been chosen to represent the campaign Make it in Great Britain as a young person in the manufacturing industry.”
