Woman of the Year Award 2007
Chief executive of Camelot
Presented by: Kevin Newson, senior partner, Yorkshire Bank
This Yorkshire woman is at the top of her game. She’s the chief executive of Camelot the national lottery operator. Not bad for a grammar school girl from Dewsbury. Dianne Thompson was a lecturer at Manchester Poly before realising her love of business. Over the last thirty years she’s worked at several high profile companies, and is even a non-executive director of Domino’s Pizza. Dianne joined Camelot in 1997, and has recently won the franchise to run the national lottery until 2019 one of her proudest achievement’s.
