Softtek President and CEO Blanca Treviño Wins Women in Technology Leadership Award

Monterrey, Mexico – June 1, 2011 – Softtek President and CEO Blanca Treviño received a Global Impact award at the 12th Annual Women in Technology (WIT) Leadership Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, May 19, 2011.  Softtek is a provider of process-driven IT services that increase the business value of Fortune 1000 organizations’ application portfolios.

The 2011 Leadership Awards honored women who have excelled as mentors, leaders and role models in their professional endeavors and communities, and embody the WIT mission.

Treviño was among a list of sixteen distinguished women to be recognized for their achievements in various technology leadership roles.

Founded in Latin America, Softtek has gained recognition as a pioneer in exporting IT services to the US, as well as for its vast geographic coverage in the region. Under Treviño's leadership, the company has continuously expanded its footprint, and has gained a strong reputation for its innovative talent attraction and development programs.

Said Treviño, “Receiving this award is not only a tremendous personal honor for me but it is also a great recognition for the quality of Softtek’s work and professional goals. Being global does not mean having a mere presence in every country, but rather means leveraging the technology and talent of local knowledge workers in each region in order to provide necessary, value-added services around the world,” says Treviño.

“In the twelve years this award has been around, technology has changed our world dramatically. It is not only the engineers and scientists who are making an impact on technology, it is also the enablers of technology – healthcare providers, law enforcement, universities, government organizations, and more,” commented Nanci Schimizzi, president of WIT. “The women honored at this event are true architects of change in the technology community at local, national and global levels.”

Blanca was also recently awarded the Medal of Civic Merit from the Government of Nuevo León, Mexico. This prestigious recognition honors Mexican men and women for the value, commitment and creativity they devote to their professional activities.
