GeoGrow is proud to announce the promotion of Natalie Harris to the position of Deputy Managing Director. With three years of dedicated service at GeoGrow, Natalie's new role marks a significant milestone in her career, as she takes on the responsibility of overseeing the company's operations and driving its growth alongside Managing Director, Chris Ansell, and other Directors.

In a recent interview to mark International Women’s Day, Natalie shared her thoughts on her promotion, her professional journey, and the challenges facing women in the construction industry today.

"Being entrusted with the role of Deputy MD is a tremendous honour," Natalie expressed. "Chris and Cindy have poured their hearts into building GeoGrow, and I am grateful for their confidence in me, to help lead the company forward."

Natalie's previous role as Finance and HR Director provided her with valuable insights into the inner workings of the company. Now, as Deputy MD, she embraces the opportunity to contribute to all aspects of GeoGrow's business, aiming to build on its foundation and solidify its position as a market leader in environmentally friendly solutions for the construction, building, commercial, and environmental sectors.

Offering advice to aspiring young women, Natalie emphasised the importance of perseverance and passion. "Keep working hard and stay determined," she urged. "There may be setbacks along the way, but your efforts will be rewarded."

Looking ahead, Natalie envisions a bright future for both herself and GeoGrow. She is committed to driving the company's success and maximizing opportunities for growth and innovation in the years to come.
