Award-winning entrepreneur Anne Timpany, Co-Founder and Director of leading commercial plumbing and mechanical engineering company On Tap Plumbers, has been shortlisted for The Inspire Awards 2018 in the Most Inspiring Star category.
Anne, who set up On Tap Plumbers with her husband Raff Agalliu in 2010, was instrumental in changing the company’s direction and focus from domestic to commercial plumbing in 2014. Since then, On Tap Plumbers has achieved tremendous growth and success, with 70 plumbers now working on nine construction sites across London.
As well as winning a prestigious NatWest everywoman Award in 2017 and two other business awards, Anne has also been installed as a Liveryman in the Worshipful Company of Plumbers. She is dedicated to inspiring the next generation of young people to choose the construction industry as a career and as well as having 10 apprentices at On Tap Plumbers, she regularly visits schools and colleges to talk about the sector.
Anne is committed to Diversity in the industry which is also the theme of this year’s awards. She says “I am so delighted to be shortlisted for the Most Inspiring Rising Star award in The Inspire Awards 2018, a very hotly contested category. As a company, we have a very diverse team of people from all over the world and from many different cultures. We have also been proactively looking for more female plumbers and currently, we have one female apprentice. Age, race or gender has never been a barrier for us, we’re a young dynamic company and our only criteria is to ensure we have teams of top professionals working with us.”
