World’s premier leadership awards recognized Gordon’s leadership at MATRIXX Software
Silicon Valley, Calif., August 25, 2022 —MATRIXX Software, a global leader in 5G monetization solutions, today announced that CEO Glo Gordon has been honored with a Gold Stevie® Award for Executive of the Year in Telecommunications as part of the 19th Annual International Business Awards®. Gordon was recognized for strong leadership and the achievements she helped to spearhead for the company over the past two years, powering growth, increasing new customers, and driving a 30% increase in employee headcount around the world.
“It has been an absolute privilege to lead the MATRIXX team during an exciting and challenging time for the company and the industry, as we overcome the obstacles from the pandemic and prepare for the growth of 5G,” said Gordon. “Together, we’ve worked hard to deliver a next-generation monetization solution that meets the needs of the modern telco, while also striving to build a strong, supportive company culture. This is an exceptionally busy time for the industry and I’m excited to find new ways that MATRIXX Software can help shape the future of telecoms.”
Under Gordon’s leadership, MATRIXX has announced new or expanded relationships with 15 customers — all leading telecom operators in their regions as well as DISH, the first company to build a 5G network in the public cloud. MATRIXX has also expanded partnerships with seven key solutions providers, many of whom lead the industry, including Google Cloud, AWS, IBM and Hewlett-Packard.
Gordon’s emphasis on building a strong corporate culture has also created impressive results. A recent internal survey found that 87% of MATRIXX Software employees feel valued at work, 91% feel safe voicing dissent, and 91% say MATRIXX lives its own values. Internal team support has led to an influx of employee referrals, resulting in more than 50% of new hires.
Stevie Award judges were impressed with Gordon’s ability to step in as CEO right before the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and show demonstrable results in a short amount of time. One judge stated, “Taking over a company that had battled its way in an industry dominated by giants, amidst a pandemic, is surely a bold action. Glo has successfully proved herself again and again, with amazing achievements.”
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. Over 3,700 nominations from 67 nations and territories were evaluated this year, by over 300 judges worldwide.
