Victoria Brocklesby is COO and Co-Founder at Origin, the UK's leading manufacturer of aluminium doors and windows.
Since 2001, Origin has grown into a £42 million turnover business, with operations in America, Dubai and Europe, and over 290 employees. Even with this growth, the family ethos that Victoria instilled has remained at the heart of the organisation.
Victoria is a leading figure within far beyond Origin's industry. Her opinions are sought by industry bodies and national media, on an array of subjects, from the gender pay gap and Brexit, through to working parents and how to build back better after COVID.
Origin is an industry disruptor because Victoria challenged the norm. She took lead times, a previously archaic form of working and innovated. Instead of builders/installers having to wait eight weeks for a bespoke bi-fold door, they can have Origin's within just 24 hours. This is revolutionary.
Victoria champions the empowerment of women, not just in manufacturing, but also engineering and construction too. She is a strong advocate that women are critical to the future of these industries, so at Origin, she facilities their ability to innovate and progress.
Victoria has worked across every department at Origin, using this knowledge to improve performance and instil the best sustainable practices possible something she views as a journey not a destination. Throughout every part of Origin's success, Victoria has been front and centre, driving the company to be a trailblazer within UK business.
