Voting has now closed for the prestigious Citywealth Power Women Award 2016 and Kate Jolly, co-founder and CEO of The Briars Group, has been nominated. The awards, now in their third year, help spotlight notable female leadership and celebrate diversity while creating a platform for showcasing best practice for the wealth sector.

Jolly co-founded The Briars Group in 1991. As a far-sighted young entrepreneur who saw a need in the business world for professional services support she set about helping growing enterprises to expand without needing to commit too much time to the resourcing and compliance issues that can often stifle ambition. For more than twenty years, The Briars Group has gone from strength to strength under Jolly’s quietly inspirational leadership and now offers extensive services that include turn-key international expansion solutions in 37 countries around the world.

Typically humble, Jolly was thrilled for the recognition, “it’s a nomination that has great personal significance for me because I have always been a keen champion of equality in business. But most importantly it’s recognition of the achievements of all of the talented women and men who I’ve been fortunate to employ or work alongside throughout the Briars story”.

Far from resting on any laurels, Jolly continues to offer the assured leadership so valued by her clients and employees as the company continues towards her dream of offering a single point of service for companies to grow quickly, simply and effectively anywhere in the world.
