On the 8th November 2019, the Bentworth team attended the Excellence in Extractives Recognition Awards 2019 at the Muthaiga Golf Club in Nairobi. We were invited after Lynette Nyagah, our Project Lead, was nominated as a finalist for the Young Achiever of the Year Award.
We are delighted to announce that Lynette won the award for her work with Bentworth and in the wider exctractives industry. When being presented with the award the following achievements from Lynette’s career were highlighted:
- A Chemical Engineer by background, who is the current Project Lead at Bentworth Investments. She has worked previously as a Field Engineer with Baker Hughes.
- Lynette has dedicated her time to encouraging the growth of engineering as a career path through the development of an internship progam with Bentworth. The company has been able to offer a number of undergraduates work placements.
- Lynette has recently become involved with the Society of Petroleum Engineers Nairobi Section as their Student Chapter Liaison. This has provided her with the opportunity to bring to bear findings from the “Mind the Engineering Gap”
survey which she developed.
