Words from the finalist…

Alexi Dragonetti, AD Operations Manager, inherits a portfolio of underperforming AD plants requiring significant upgrades. Through direct engagement with the owners, she secures over £9m in finance for critical improvements. Alexi implemented a comprehensive plan focusing on performance enhancement and staff motivation. With capital deployed, plant performance improved dramatically, boosting morale and confidence among stakeholders. Alexi’s remarkable turnaround transformed the portfolio from operating at less than 30% to over 90% capacity, making it a highly valuable asset. Her success illustrates how women in front-row operational roles can deliver industry leading performance in a sector that has traditionally been dominated by men.
