Shine Bid Services CEO Anne McNamara: “Firms shamed in gender pay gap should look to smaller, more dynamic companies as an example.”
London, United Kingdom. 26 April 2018. The CEO of one of the UK’s leading businesses on winning government and highly regulated bids today called for industry giants who pay women less than men to follow the example of smaller businesses, highlighting Shine Bid Services’ diverse workforce as being behind the organisation’s success.

Anne McNamara, CEO of Shine Bid Services, made the comments after Shine was named among the top 400 fastest growing private companies in Europe by Inc. 5000. Ranking in 396th place, the result was based on Shine’s three-year revenue growth.
“Being named as one of Europe’s fastest growing private companies is a testament to our team for the amazing work they deliver for clients, by helping them win work to transform their business,” said McNamara. “As a female-led company with an even mix of women and men in C-suite roles, equality is at the heart of our workplace ethos and we are proud to have a strong representation of LGBT, age and race within our team. Appreciating talent no matter what form it comes in has been a big factor behind our success.”
Despite having less than 250 staff, Shine decided to analyse the pay across its company, finding no gender pay gaps. More than 50% of its workforce is made up of women, with more than 50% of C-level positions also held by females.
