Exeter employee scoops national award

Sarah Daniel, from RGB Building Supplies, wins Rising Star of the Year Award

Sarah is celebrating the prestigious accolade, her second national honour within the past seven months. 

The awards celebrate the UK merchanting industry and highlight the businesses, brands and people that make the sector so successful. Sarah, 26, was presented with her award during a ceremonial lunch hosted by Natasha Kaplinsky OBE at The Brewery in London.

In an industry that is working hard to encourage young people to join, Sarah believes it’s important that those who are at the start of their careers are recognised for the work they do, and it’s something she will be focusing on when she speaks at the BMF Members’ Day in September. 

Sarah said:“The merchanting and the construction industry offer fantastic career opportunities and I’m hoping these types of awards help young people see the wide-ranging positions available. There were seven others shortlisted for the BMJ Independent Rising Star Award, who all do fantastic work at their companies, so I was completely shocked to be named as the winner.”
