Rachael Wilson, Managing Director of Black Energy Renewables Ltd of North Devon was one of only 5 businesses around the U.K to be presented with an award at the prestigious “Mentors Me” Excellence in Womens’ Mentoring Awards.

Hosted by BT and the British Bankers Association in the City, the event was attended by a number of prominent guests, including Jo Swinson M.P., Minister for Women and Equalities.

Rachael, pictured here with her mentor, Bruce Turner and the Minister said, “I am delighted to receive this award. It means so much to us to be recognised for our work, integrity and vision. Although Black Energy Renewables is still a relatively young company we collectively have over 10 years experience in this sector and we are just as excited about this ever evolving industry as we were all those years ago."

Bruce also won an award for his excellence in mentoring Rachael and providing valuable guidance to her business.

Bruce, who is also based in North Devon, is a retired senior finance manager, and has brought the skills he has gained in his commercial and finance career to help Rachael develop a strong foundation from which the business can successfully grow. 

He commented “of course I am proud for Rachael and for myself, but I am also proud that the Company is competing successfully and ethically at the leading edge of these new technologies, and that this is happening in North Devon. Innovation and development is happening here and now, and that has to be a good thing for our community in the South West”.
