Diageo’s category marketing manager Tanya Clarke is among ten women to receive the HSBC corporate executives award as part of the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) honours for Ireland’s 25 most powerful women. The awards are made on the basis of company turnover, staff numbers, stock market listing, role responsibility, role budget, breaking traditional barriers and the winner’s contribution to Irish society.
