Her most recent corporate roles involved steering the People element of a huge conversion project (137 Netto stores into small Asda Supermarkets in a 6 month period) and latterly as Senior Director of Diversity and Inclusion concentrating on Gender, Ethnicity, Age, Disability and Sexual Orientation with the Asda Executive Board. Earlier in her career, she ran a number of Superstores so has experienced managing annual turnover in excess of £60m and leading teams of 15+ managers and 400+ employees, first hand!

A highly self-motivated individual, with excellent relationship management, analytical and judgmental abilities, she inspires others to deliver results, to enable effective delivery of the business strategy. Debra’s specialist skills include: developing diversity initiatives, coaching and developing leaders in handling all people related activities and employee engagement, strategic thinking and developing pragmatic solutions.

She describes her proudest career moment as “electrifying and energising” when she organised a Conference for 650 talented women and launched an internal Women in Leadership Programme in 2013. Asda has since been recognised externally, for Advancing Women in the Workplace, at the Opportunity Now Awards 2014.

Debra mentors young talented female professionals from other sectors. She is passionate about unlocking potential and maximising talent.

Debra gained a BA in Retail Marketing from Manchester Metropolitan University and now lives in Southport, on the North West coast.
