Eton Environmental Group Managing Director Joanna Shaefer is in the running for a prestigious regional business award.

Joanna has been short-listed in the category of ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ in the 2021 Thames Valley Business Awards.

This is in recognition of the contribution she has made as MD of Berkshire-based Eton Environmental Group, building the company up from scratch to become one of the UK’s leading health and safety building compliance firms and her support of the local community through her charitable and voluntary work.

Joanna is among 13 women from the area who were short-listed from the 108 nominations submitted in her category.

She said: “I am so humbled and delighted to have been shortlisted for the Thames Valley Female Entrepreneur of the year award.

“My husband Christian & I run the company together, so it is certainly a nod to us both but also the company as a whole and our amazing staff who work so diligently throughout year.

“They continue to astound us with their dedication and vigour.  The past year is one many of us would never want to repeat but our team have been exceptional in every way. This nomination, and being shortlisted helps make it all worthwhile.”

Joanna will discover if she has won the award at a virtual ceremony on 29th April.
