Jacqueline O’Donovan, managing director of O’Donovan Waste Disposal, has been given the freedom of the City of London by The Worshipful Company of Carmen.
O’Donovan was recognised for her efforts to improve transport policy in London and across the country which, during the past 30 years, has focused on innovation, staff development and pioneering road safety.
Honoured at the Chamberlain’s Court at Guildhall, the appointment as a Freeman of the City provides O’Donovan with the opportunity to serve the City of London Corporation and the wider community.
She said: “It is an honour and a privilege to be recognised in The Worshipful Company of Carmen. I’m humbled to join such a prestigious list of individuals who have changed their respective industries for the better.
“Improving transport policy in the UK remains a priority for us, and we’ll continue to strive for better to ensure safety for all road users.”
