Women in AV award won by Visionaire CEO
Visionaire CEO Aneeta Gupta has become the first woman outside of the USA to win Women in AV Award from InfoComm.
The Women in AV Award was created by InfoComm to raise awareness on the growing role of women professionals in the field of audiovisual technology. The award was presented to Gupta at InfoComm 2013 held earlier this month.
“Aneeta Gupta has demonstrated extraordinary levels of professional knowledge, while taking time to improve the industry and better the lives of others,” said David Labuskes from InfoComm.
Aneeta Gupta started her company, an ICT solution provider and system integrator in the Middle East region, in 1995 with two employees. The company developed a new business model for system integration called Technomics with 600 people supporting the organization and its customers in the Middle East and other parts of the world.
Gupta believes in the empowerment of women, which has led to her nurturing several leadership positions in Visionaire. Currently, the heads of Technical Program Management, Procurement Management, Marketing and Human Resources are women. And in 2012, 80 percent of Visionaire’s internship and trainee engineering intake program were women engineers.
Apart from her leadership role at Visionaire, Gupta mentors young entrepreneurs. She plays a leadership role as a charter member of TiE, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship worldwide, with 57 chapters in 14 countries.
