Anna Delvecchio, Commercial Account Director at Amey, has been named Woman of the Year at the 2018 FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards.

Launched eleven years ago, the awards programme celebrates the exceptional women transforming transport and logistics in the UK, while showcasing the range of fulfilling and exciting career opportunities it has to offer. A special Woman of the Year Awardwas presented to Anna Delvecchio, Commercial Account Director at Amey, who started her career journey on a company and government funded apprenticeship at just 15 years old. Having broken through the glass ceiling by the age of 30 by becoming Supply Chain Director for Invensys, she is now the Rail Supply Group Director for Amey, seconded to the Rail Delivery Group to co-lead on the government industrial strategy sector deal.

During an impressive 20-year-long career, she has excelled in a number of senior commercial and supply chain roles, including negotiating major upgrade contracts for Network Rail, Invensys and Amey. Anna was singled out by the judges for her continuous support for women in transport and logistics.

This includes the “Women in Rail South” group she established across 11 counties to provide women with a local network to support their professional and personal growth through various events and workshops. She is also dedicated to engaging and attracting the next generation of talent she believes will reshape the industry through visits to local schools and her work with organisations such as Young Rail Professionals and the National Skills Academy for Rail.  Anna is an absolute advocate of apprenticeship programmes and is keen to help promote the Year of Engineering and to attract more females into STEM subjects and careers.
