Heywood woman becomes first female winner of European Future Leader Award

Date published: 07 April 2022

A Heywood woman has become the first woman to win The Global Cold Chain Alliance Europe Future Leader Award.

Corrin Hill, transport manager at Lineage Logistics, a temperature-controlled logistics supplier based in Heywood, became the first woman to win the accolade at the 25th European Cold Chain Conference, held in Rotterdam, Netherlands, between 23-25 March.

The GCCA Future Leader Award recognises talented young professionals who have the potential to become cold chain leaders and make a positive contribution to the development of the global temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics industry.

Finalists were judged and evaluated on their knowledge level of the industry, track record of excellence, communication skills, and leadership skills by a panel of industry leaders. In addition, each candidate delivered a short presentation during the conference.  

Corrin said: “I am proud to be the recipient of the Europe Future Leader Award and thankful to have been given the opportunity to exhibit my ability to be a leader in this essential industry.

“It was an honour to take part in this competition with other gifted young professionals.”

Corrin will represent Europe and go on to compete against young leaders from different regions later in the year for the GCCA Global NextGen Award.

This year’s conference attracted close to 200 cold chain professionals from Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia.

Lineage’s Heywood facility is one of the largest employers in the area with nearly 450 employees, and 1,500 team members UK-wide.
