An account executive based at Aske near Richmond has been shortlisted in the rising star category at the Women in Technology Awards.

Scarlett Macfarlane works at tech company Purple Creative Studio.

The awards celebrate inspirational women across the UK tech industry who consistently achieve excellence and success.

Sarah Comerford, Purple Creative’s client services director, said: “We believe this describes Scarlett perfectly.

“We nominated Scarlett back in April and would like to thank a few key people who supported her application with testimonials, so thank you Hannah, Andrew, Jenny and Karen for your lovely kind words.

The judging panel shortlisted Scarlett into the final three out of over 50 nominations and she will be up against two other women, Diana Asnani from Atos and Amber Hilton from Dell.

The ceremony will be held on June 26 at Canary Wharf in London where Scarlett will meet and celebrate with  other inspirational women in the technology sector.

“We are sure that you will join us in wishing Scarlett lots of luck and we will keep you updated on the night,” added Sarah.
