London business woman Maria Boyle has been recognised as one of the world’s 25 smartest women working in luxury this year.
Boyle, who does the PR for Bonhams Fine Jewellery and Hancocks London, has made it on to the Luxury Daily’s list of Luxury Women to Watch 2017.
The list recognises women who are set to make a difference in the luxury business, particularly in marketing, retail, media and digital in over the next 12 months.
According to Luxury Daily, the final 25 women share the same qualities: dedication to craft, ambition, leadership potential and educator. It states: “These women are also quite aware of their role-model status as a career in luxury becomes a more welcoming and appealing option for talented women.”
Public relations expert Maria Boyle, 45, established her own PR company M B Comms in 1996 after working for a number of PR agencies both in London and overseas.
“I am very proud of the brands and companies I advise in the luxury sector and feel very privileged to sit alongside global CEOs and their leadership teams whether they are in Paris, London or New York. I love bringing their brands, services and products to life utilising my PR skills.” Boyle says of the accolade.
”To get global recognition for the work I do is absolutely brilliant. I’m thrilled to bits and am looking forward to working with a range of luxury brands in the coming year.”
