Former Omagh Academy pupil and local architect takes centre stage at Queen’s University Belfast
Johann Muldoon MBE has been recognised as the First Trust Bank Queen’s Graduate of the Year 2017 at this year’s ‘black tie’ Charter Day Dinner, held on Friday 24 November.
The annual award is presented by the Queen's Graduates' Association (QGA), with the support of First Trust Bank to an ‘outstanding graduate, who has made a significant impact’ during the past 12 months. Recently, she made history by becoming the first local female in the architecture profession to be awarded an MBE for her contribution to architecture and business.
Johann has picked up several prestigious accolades in the last 12-18 months, including a Civic Award from Mid Ulster Council, and was a Forward Ladies STEM Rising Star Regional Winner and a finalist in a number of other national and international architecture competitions.
Joining Manor Architects in Moneymore in County Derry/Londonderry in 2008, Johann is now Managing Director and one of a small number of RIBA Specialist Conservation Architects in the UK.
