(London, UK) Friday, 10th June 2016 – Kitty McCormick, Director, Lending & Capital Management at Coutts, received formal recognition of her leadership talent last night when she scooped this year’s Women in the City Future Leaders Award, sponsored by ICAEW and HSBC. Emma Codd, Managing Partner Talent, Deloitte LLP and the 2015 Women in the City Woman of Achievement Award Winner was on hand to present the winning trophy and prize, in front of a full-house, at Farmers & Fletchers Hall, London EC1A 7LD.

On receiving her trophy and personal development prize – a complimentary place on ICAEW’s Women in Leadership Programme – Kitty McCormick said; “It is an incredible honour to be selected as the winner of the Future Leaders Award.  I am passionate about paying forward the support and wisdom I have benefitted from and relish the chance to do so alongside Women in the City.  I am hugely excited about this opportunity, as a female role model, to demonstrate that it is the things and experiences which make us who we are, that enable us to be successful.

The Future Leaders Award formally recognises women who demonstrate leadership qualities and is an important part of the process of raising the profile of women who are making a contribution beyond their functional, technical or specialist area.

The impact of this, plus the high calibre of candidates, has resulted in an intense judging process with a shortlist of 12 going through to the final round of judging. Each year our winner is someone who stands out from the crowd. Kitty is no exception. She was a polished, professional and well prepared candidate from application form to final interview.”
