Samantha McCabe takes Women in Property chair
Women in Property, the national property and construction industry lobbying and networking organisation, has appointed Samantha McCabe as Central Scotland chairman.
An architect and associate at Oberlanders Architects, Samantha will take on the role of chair for Central Scotland Women in Property for one year and will strive to encourage more young women to enter the property and construction sectors.
“Over the coming year, as an organisation, we will be focusing our attention on the skills shortage that is already evident and which will be exacerbated in a post-Brexit Britain,” Samantha explained.
“This means getting into schools to talk about how great it is working in this industry, the variety and the opportunities out there. Inspiring children at a young age is particularly important.”
Phil Macdonald, managing partner, added: “Oberlanders are delighted that Sam has agreed to take on this role and we wish her well for her year in office. We are hugely supportive of Women in Property and their invaluable role in promoting and enhancing opportunities for women to flourish and thrive within the property and construction sectors. As a practice, we are delighted to be given the opportunity to support this effort much more closely over the coming year, through Sam’s involvement as chair of the central Scotland branch.”
