Pentland Brands , Material Specialist
Becky joined Pentland Brands in November 2007 in a Materials Development role within the Speedo Aqualab – where she developed textile materials for the high performance racing swimsuits worn by Olympic athletes. Becky now sits within the Pentland Innovation team sharing, influencing and promoting material developments across all Pentland brands.
Having studied Textile Science and Technology at UMIST, she entered the textile industry as a Material Technologist, working within both brands and for a time the manufacturing industry across the UK.
Throughout her career in materials development, sustainability has evolved from that of a trend to a necessity and an expectation. Becky has been, and will continue to be, an active force in the movement to reduce the damaging impact created by the textile industry.
