We’re excited to announce our CEO Susan Frech has been named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the category of Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Business Products (11 – 2,500 employees) in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

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.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.

Previously recognized as a top Women-Run Workplace of the Year, this honor recognizes Susan’s passionate entrepreneurial spirit and relentless drive to make modern marketing more purposeful and meaningful through Community Powered Marketing.

Over the past 11+ years, Susan has built a company that is defined by its ability to use the pace of change to its advantage. Vesta’s cutting-edge technology is redefining consumer engagement, and her business remains one of the few companies in the MarTech space to have no external funding.

“It is a true honor to be recognized as a finalist for Female Entrepreneur of the Year,” says Susan Frech, CEO of Vesta. “To be recognized among such an amazing group of women is a testament to the success and recognition that women in business deserve.”

Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries.

Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “In a year like no other in our lifetimes, we’ve produced a cohort of amazing, Stevie-winning women, organizations, and achievements like no other.  At all times our winners show themselves to be fearless and indomitable, but their leadership and example are especially valued this year.  We congratulate all of our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie winners.  We look forward to celebrating them during our December 9 virtual ceremony, and to hearing from some of them during our Women|Future Conference on November 12-13.”
