The winners of YoungPro 2019 are:
Apprentice of the Year
Kathryn Adams, Advent Communications
The judges said “Kathryn has really found her niche. After realising the world of retail wasn’t for her, Kathryn started a Business & Admin apprenticeship with Coventry College. Her great “can-do” attitude and supportive nature were evident and she’s keen to make the most of any opportunities that come her way.”

Emma Marsh, Wright Hassall
The judges said “In a short time it’s clear that Emma has made a big impression running Wright Hassall’s busy events programme, building strong external partnerships and relationships. Emma is enthusiastic, full of energy and clearly really enjoys what she does – a great ambassador for her firm and the region.”
Presenting Emma with her trophy is Gemma Knott of Coventry College, sponsor of the Business Services category.
Tommy Donaldson, Barclays
The judges said “Tommy impressed the panel with his energy and enthusiasm having switched career and recently relocated to Coventry & Warwickshire. Equally passionate about helping customers and all the opportunities the region offers young professionals, Tommy is a great ambassador both for his employer and the wider region, and is a great example of how to effectively use transferable skills across sectors.”
Tommy received his award from Jon Wilby of Band Hatton Button, sponsor of the Finance category.
Patrick McCallum, Wright Hassall
The judges said “In addition to excellent client and colleague feedback, Patrick demonstrated strong commitment to the profession through his volunteering work to support the next generation of lawyers, mentoring and working with local schools and universities. Patrick also demonstrated the X-Factor through the feminist book club he organises which has a diverse membership of over 200 people.”
