Everywoman founder Karen Gill and Tim Steiner, CEO and co-founder of Ocado Technology present Vicky Brook with her award.
Vicky Brock, CEO, Clear Returns, from Glasgow won the FDM everywoman Innovator of the Year award 2014.
Brook began a career in direct marketing before deciding to launch her tech startup, Clear Returns which provides data driven solutions to multichannel retailers’ return challenges. Her goal is to lead Clear Returns to be the global market leader in returns intelligence and to be a £100m company within a decade. Brook is a board director emeritus of the Digital Analytics Association and has been named by Forbes.com and Bloomberg as one of the nine top female tech CEOs to watch.
Judges said Brook was deserving of such an award because she is “solving a real-world problem and being a fantastic tech pioneer”.
The annual awards aim to address the issue of attracting more women into the tech sector and retaining more female talent. This year's winners were announced during a ceremony at the Park Lane Sheraton.
