DONCASTER business woman Teresa Galley has been named winner of the Yorkshire & Humberside Women in Business Award for Property Services.
Teresa Galley runs her own property portfolio as well as a successful lettings and property management company, called Galley Properties, which has grown every year since it was launched four years ago.
Prior to setting up her own business she ran large technical projects for London Underground.
Judges were impressed by the fact that she had taught herself basic DIY skills before going on to develop a substantial property portfolio and then establish her lettings and property management company.
She is also actively involved in the charity Doncaster Housing Young People.
Teresa Galley said: “Winning such a prestigious award is the best feeling ever.
“It feels great to put women in business in the news, and it’s good to know that some of the best business owners in the world are started and led by women.”
The Women in Business Awards are organised by Forward Ladies, which promotes professional women from all sectors.
Forward Ladies is the North’s largest women’s networking and business support organisation, with more than 13,500 members.
