The leading female front runners of the New Zealand ICT industry joined together in celebration as Reseller News kicked off its inaugural Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) in Auckland.
Held at a jam-packed event at the Sofitel Hotel, over 100 tech leaders combined to celebrate gender diversity and recognise female excellence in the New Zealand channel.
Reflective of IDG’s continued dedication to the local market, the awards recognise the very best in the channel, celebrating the achievements of a talented crop of standout female figures who have become influential figures in New Zealand’s ICT industry.
As outlined during an inspiring keynote by Westcon-Comstor Executive VP of Asia-Pacific Wendy O’Keeffe, WIICTA aims to celebrate the innovation excellence and entrepreneurial spirit of Kiwi women in ICT.
WIICTA winners were chosen across five categories which included Rising Star, Technical, Community, Entrepreneur and Innovation.
We’re stoked to announce that Emma Krouglova, our resident #girlboss and Director of Partners and Strategic Alliances, won this year’s Rising Star in the inaugural Reseller News Women in ICT Awards.
The judges said the accolade was a reflection of her outstanding business acumen and professional integrity and proven desire to reach the next level of professional development. So proud of you, Em!
2016 WIICTA Rising Star: Emma Krouglova – The Instillery
The Rising Star award recognises the candidate with a proven desire to reach the next level of professional development. The candidate – who has been working in the ICT industry for under 10 years – is growing quickly in importance, demonstrating outstanding business acumen and professional integrity.
“Emma wins the Rising Star award for her top performing results at The Instillery. Just three months into the role, Emma has helped the company expanded into new territories, specifically the USA which now represents 40 percent of The Instillery’s revenues.
Despite her young age, there is no doubt that Emma will achieve her lofty goal of being the CEO of her own company and a SaaS expert by the age of 30.”
