Irish equipment rental specialists Dromad Hire has recently announced the appointment of Phyllis O’Brien as their Regional Workshop & Fleet Manager.
The multi award winning hire Irish Firm has proven yet again that they are a modern, diverse company by promoting equality in the workplace, with a large percentage of female employees now holding positions in both supervisory & managerial roles – encouraging the empowerment of females in a typical male dominant industry.
Phyllis has an in-depth knowledge of the hire industry having worked with Dromad for the past 6 years behind the scenes as Accounts Administrator. Her dedication and determination to progress in the company didn’t go unnoticed as management observed, encouraged and mentored in preparing Phyllis to progress within the company.
According to Dromad Hire’s new Workshop & Fleet Manager Phyllis O’Brien, “ Since commencing my career, I have been encouraged to challenge myself and to continue to advance and develop by taking on different roles and opportunities.
I always knew I wanted to have a challenging job and that each day would be different. Throughout my journey so far with Dromad, I have been lucky to work with a number of role models, both male and female in management functions.
I found my female role models to be encouraging & extremely positive in progressing in what is generally a dominated male environment – these are wonderful characteristics to have and we need more individuals like this in the hire industry. This influence and support has helped me to take on my new challenge with confidence. ”
