Camilla Jane Allnatt, a Vice President in MUFG's Corporate Banking Division, has been named as a winner in the Banking and Capital Markets category of WeAreTheCity's 2020 Rising Star Awards.
Founded by WeAreTheCity.com, the Rising Star Awards recognise the achievements and celebrates female role models and talent across different industries in order to promote the pipeline of future leaders. Camilla is part of the Global Subsidiary Banking team, selling MUFG's products and services to Multinational Clients in over 50 countries. As well as her day job, Camilla was recognised for her role as co-chair of the Balance gender equality network, CSR Champion and an award winning mentor.
Two other MUFG employees, Annabelle Juffs and Ericka Fitzgerald, were also shortlisted for a Rising Star Award. This is an incredible achievement given that the awards were entered by over 1,000 individuals and were judged by a panel of 45 independent judges. This is the second year MUFG has been recognised in the awards, following a win by Ericka Fitzgerald in 2019 in the same category.
As a global organisation, MUFG believes that diversity is critical to success, and having a workforce that reflects the communities where we operate brings benefits to not just employees, but clients also. MUFG has six I&D networks across EMEA that are employee-led, including a Balance Gender equality network.
About the win, Camilla Jane Allnatt, Vice President, Corporate Banking, stated:
"I am honoured and truly humbled to have won the 2020 WEAreTheCity Rising Star Award in the Banking and Capital Markets category. It is a privilege to be among so many inspirational women recognised for their achievements and as the next generation of future leaders.
"It is a pleasure to work within an organisation where I can foster this passion for positive change alongside likeminded colleagues, such as the two other well deserving Rising Star 2020 nominees from MUFG. A big thank you to those of you who supported me and took the time to vote for me, I am truly grateful."
Vanessa Vallely OBE, Managing Director, WeAreTheCity, said:
"I am so proud that for the sixth year running WeAreTheCity has been able to shine a light on the achievements of so many remarkable women across the UK.
"Our 2020 winners join a phenomenal alumni of 550 previous winners who continue to soar, both professionally and personally. I am ecstatic to welcome our 2020 winners to the WeAreTheCity family and to watch them progress in to the senior positions they so rightly deserve."
