Charles Yardley, COO of City A.M., said of the list: “As the definitive London business news organisation, City A.M. is proud to be launching this multi-platform initiative, which speaks to the strength and talent of London’s leading ladies.”

Commenting on the list, Jayne-Anne Gadhia said: “”It is fantastic to see City AM celebrating the considerable talent of London’s power women – from the lawyers and accountants to the entrepreneurs and executives, all driving innovation and economic growth. By holding a light to their achievements, we amplify the positive impact that these fantastic role models have on men and women alike.”

Supporting the initiative, Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities, Nicky Morgan, said: “This inaugural Power 100 Women list is a really exciting measure of the growing recognition of women within the City. Having women in these prominent positions means that companies benefit from an enormous wealth of female talent as well as ensuring visible working role models for the next generation of girls.

“We have already come a long way but can still do more to make sure women everywhere are able to fulfil their potential. It is women like these, who are performing at the top of their game, and the men who work alongside them, who are in a position to make this possible throughout the UK at every level.”
