Sally Fish, Property Director, The Wilky Group
Sally is a qualified Chartered Surveyor who, next year, will reach 40 years working in a profession where, still, only 19% of its members are women. Although this figure has increased from 17% in 2017 and from just 5.8% in 1991, it is still far below other professions.
She is hopeful that some of the positive changes in agile working, that were forced upon all businesses as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, will encourage and enable more women to remain in the profession beyond their 30s and reach senior management and Director positions.
Sally provides specialist property support to The Wilky Group’s Business Centre management and clients, based at Fetcham Park, Parallel House, Cams Hall and Westmead House, as well as managing the promotion and development of 100 acre key strategic employment site adjacent at Gatwick Airport.
