Executive General Manager Aviation Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF), Michelle Bennetts, took out top honours in the Emerging Leader in the Public Sector category in the 2014 NAB Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards today (Thursday 6 March 2014).

The awards were created to celebrate emerging female talent as well as the men and women that help women achieve and 2014 marks the second time they have been held.

Ms Bennetts collected the award for her work in leading ARFF through an unprecedented period of growth and change.

Michelle joined Airservices in 2005 and has held several executive roles in the organisation since that time, including leading the Environment business group. She was appointed to the position of Executive General Manager ARFF in January 2013 after a period of acting in the role.
