Beacon’s female roofing pro of the year is underway


Beacon has launched its fourth annual North American Female Roofing Professional of the Year program.

The campaign celebrates women in the roofing industry across the United States and Canada by calling on the public at large to nominate a female roofing professional who has demonstrated excellence, a commitment to putting people first, making safety a priority, doing the right thing, and building for her customers, her co-workers, and her community.

Any woman who works in the roofing industry can be nominated, whether they are in operations, accounting, sales, ownership, estimating, or other roles. 

Nominations are welcome now through April 10 by visiting the campaign’s site

Beacon said five finalists will be announced in May, and members of the public will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite finalists. Beacon will announce the winner and runners-up in June. The five winners will receive funding to support further professional development, such as attending the International Roofing Expo.

“We’re excited to honor the tremendous work and variety of skills that women in the roofing industry offer to communities,” said Birte von Schwarzenfeld, Beacon senior vice president of commercial solutions. “Beacon recognizes the value that women bring to our industry, and this program was created to spotlight the significant contributions they bring to their organizations. We look forward to another year of being inspired by women in our community who have displayed outstanding commitment and leadership.”
