Who are you and what do you do? I am Pauline Dawes, CEO/ Founder of SOMI Trailers, a disruptive new technology that replaces four truck journeys by three, globally.
After leaving school at 15, Pauline went on to study at the University of Cambridge and graduate with an MBA. Following her studies she began working in transport and engineering. Here, she quickly climbed to the top of this male-dominated sector. As Managing Director of SOMI Trailers, Pauline has drawn on her 10 years of professional experience to inform her innovation; leading the development of a trailer body that uses the space underneath trucks to transport greater loads with every journey.
