Jetlore, the leading AI-powered customer data platform for top-tier retailers and beyond, announced that Montse Medina, co-founder and COO, has been selected as a finalist for a Stevie Awards for Women in Business in the Female Executive of the Year—Business Products category for companies with more than 11 but less than 2,500 employees. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s preeminent business awards for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees, and the organizations they run. Finalists for 2017 were announced, and the Stevie Award winners will be announced on November 17 in New York.
After graduating at the top of her class in Spain with a degree in Aeronautics, Montse worked as a researcher in China before moving to the United States to pursue her PhD in Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University. During her three years at Stanford, Montse received two full fellowships from Stanford University and the WSDM 2011 Best Student Paper Award. She took leave from the PhD program and started Jetlore in 2011.
As COO, Montse’s responsibilities range from developing business strategies, serving as Jetlore’s chief financial officer, overseeing data science projects, building predictive statistical models and acting as the GM of Jetlore in Spain and Latin America. Montse is currently a board member at COTEC, where she discusses innovation trends alongside the King of Spain, government officials, and several CEOs from Spain’s top 35 companies. Under Montse’s leadership, Jetlore’s Spanish and Latin American client roster has grown to account for more than a third of Jetlore’s total revenue.
“I am thrilled to be named a finalist for such a prestigious award,” says Medina. “I am a passionate innovator with a commitment to making Jetlore not only one of the best software companies in the world, but one of the best companies in the world. Thank you to the Stevie Awards’ judging panel for honoring me with this designation among so many incredible women. I am humbled by your recognition.”
