Other World Computing announced today that company President Jen Soulé has received a Silver Stevie Award for the category Female Executive of the Year – Consumer Products – 11 to 2,500 Employees at the 14th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, Nov. 17. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the USA and several other countries were in attendance.
Jen Soulé broke ground as the first person to hold the title of President of OWC, and in the past year took on a much larger role in the daily running of the company, freeing up Founder/CEO Larry O’Connor to expand on strategizing the future direction of the organization. Soulé played a key role creating channel marketing collaboration, developing new international partners, and communicating new corporate strategy and goals. Soulé started as an OWC Sales Rep in 1997, moving on to manage the sales team before leading product development, and eventually becoming the company’s first President in 2014. Being an integral part of OWC’s growth for 20 of the company’s 29 years has given Soulé a unique perspective on the value of each department and person at OWC.
