This year’s SaaS NORTH conference in Ottawa wrapped up yesterday and a number of Vancouverites shared their expertise at the event including Clio’s Ainsley Robertson, Procurify’s Aman Mann, and Slack’s James Sherrett.
It turns out Vancouver is punching above its weight when it comes to Software as a Service (SaaS) and an announcement from The Software Report last month confirms that.
The Software Report publishes the annual Top 50 Women Leaders in SaaS list and this year three leaders from Vancouver-headquartered companies made the grade: Kelly Hall, Kristine Steuart, and Christy Wyatt.
The award recognizes female software executives who have achieved notable success in the past year, determined through company caliber and career track record, as well as colleague feedback and individual attributes of integrity, drive, and contribution.
Hall is the Chief Customer Officer of Vision Critical and is responsible for global customer enablement and engagement. Her expertise and leadership have empowered Vision Critical to practice customer-centricity by engaging with customers, listening to them, and instituting company-wide mechanisms for creating optimal customer experiences.
Steuart is Chief Executive Officer of Allocadia. Since co-founding the B2B-focused marketing operations platform in 2010 with her twin sister Katherine Berry, Steuart has brought her vision of making every marketing dollar count to a growing global client base. The duo created Allocadia after seeing first-hand in their previous positions the difficulty of understanding marketing investments and measuring marketing performance.
Wyatt is the Chief Executive Officer and a member of the board of directors at Absolute, a leading provider of enterprise cybersecurity solutions focused on endpoint monitoring and management. Drawing on her extensive background in security, mobility, and analytics, Wyatt is dedicated to solving Absolute customers’ greatest enterprise resiliency challenges.
The Software Report stated, “Today, more than ever, it is important that we recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women in SaaS, software, and the broader technology field. By shining a light on these leaders we can help inspire and encourage today’s younger generation of women to aim high and achieve.”
