Jana Uhlig, COO of Adello, was named a Finalist in the Female Executive of the Year category in the 12th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
As COO and Board Member, Jana grew Adello from a European-only player to a global company with offices across 3 continents and transformed Adello to become a technology-first player. Under Jana’s co-leadership, Adello’s revenues grew six fold in 2 years while the team only increased by 50 percent over the same period. This is in large part due to her experience in building scalable data- and technology-driven businesses.
Prior, Jana co-founded and served as CEO of HStreaming, a Big Data startup which was later acquired by Adello. She served as a Director at Citigroup, headed the Cards Product Division at Raiffeisenbank, and developed new products at GE Capital, now GE Money. Jana holds an MBA from Kellogg School of Management.
Mark Forster, CEO of Adello, comments: “Jana has been instrumental in Adello’s growth. She is one the smartest, most dedicated, and hardworking people I know. She has the intelligence to set the right strategy and the rigor to execute flawlessly. She is the perfect partner for building disruptive businesses like Adello.”
More than 1,400 entries were submitted this year for consideration across all categories. Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 13. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream via the Stevie Awards’ Facebook page from 7:30 pm ET, and the red carpet pre-show will air on the Stevie Awards’ Periscope from 6:00 pm ET.
“High-achieving women entrepreneurs, organizations, and executives all over the world are an inspiration to girls and women who dream of starting and growing a business,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “The first-round judges have told us how impressed they were with this year’s field of Finalists. We’re looking forward to recognizing them in New York on November 13.”
