SATRA director presented with Honorary Doctorate

The UK's University of Northampton has presented SATRA assistant director Christine Powley-Williams with an Honorary Doctorate at this year’s summer graduation ceremonies. Christine, who joined SATRA in 2009, is a longstanding member of the Technical Liaison Group, which acts as part of the quality assurance procedures of the University’s Leather Department.

Having graduated in 1984 from the National Leathersellers’ Centre of Nene College (the precursor to the University of Northampton), she immediately took up employment at the Carr Tanning Company in Gloucestershire, where she was appointed as works director and general manager. Christine then spent two years working in Australia as production manager for Packer Tanning, before returning to the UK. She is also a past president of the Society of Leather Technologists and Chemists, and a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Curriers of the City of London.
