Embed celebrates awards in tech & innovation
Embed, a leader in cashless business management systems for the amusement, entertainment and leisure industries, has received a number of awards and recognition for its leadership, innovation, and resiliency during the pandemic, a season that will be best remembered for its endless uncertainty in a year that almost got cancelled.
The 2020 ASEAN CIO50 Awards, in association with Adobe, on 3 December 2020, celebrated the top CIOs, CTO and CDOs in a virtual award’s ceremony. The ASEAN CIO50 Awards was judged on the three core pillars required to thrive during a very challenging year navigating the pandemic: Business Innovation, Leadership and Resiliency.
Andy Welsh, CTO, Solutions Group for Embed & Booking Boss, Helix Leisure, was recognized and ranked (for the 2nd year in a row) in the top -15 CTO professionals, coming in at 11th, beating out tech giants like Ingram Micro, DHL, Deutsche Bank, Johnson & Johnson, Coca Cola and Sephora.
“This recognition is a validation of the team’s hard work to develop solutions that directly enable the survival of our customers, partners and industry. Given the pandemic climate, consumers are pervasively aware and chronically worried about keeping their families COVID-free and safe. No one is going to a business they deem unsafe, they need to be reassured with the measures the operator takes to mitigate risk, keeping their employees, consumers and community safe. A simple Google Search yields the ongoing research and data supporting the dramatic spike in mobile payments, which is why I’m so proud Embed is the first to go-to-market with The Mobile Wallet,” said Andy.
Women In Tech Review named Renee Welsh, CEO, Solutions Group for Embed & Booking Boss, Helix Leisure, Top-50 Women in Tech in 2021; CIO Review includes Embed in its Top-10 Most Promising Gaming Tech Solutions Provider of 2020 and Silicon Review includes Embed in its 50 Leading Companies of the Year 2021.
Industry Era also named Embed’s CMO, Sara Paz, in their 10 Best CMOs of 2020. Since joining Embed in January 2019, Sara architected the Embed’s Marketing function and Marketing Strategy, with the intent of Transforming the Business of Fun and the Marketing thereof.
When COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, Renee and the Embed executive team were determined to bring the light by bringing the entire industry together and demonstrated their commitment to the industry’s recovery.
