Clear Returns’ CEO, Vicky Brock, was yesterday named Innovator of the Year at the 2014 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards as reported on ComputerWeekly. Judges said Brock, of Glasgow, was deserving of such an award because she is “solving a real-world problem and being a fantastic tech pioneer.”
The annual 2014 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards brought together UK’s leading figures in business and technology to celebrate the achievements of this year’s winners and to demonstrate that the tech sector offers great career opportunities for women possessing a wide range of talents and attributes.
Vicky added: “it is important for women working in technology to step forward and be role models to encourage and inspire more women into the technology sector. It’s a myth that computing and technology is just for the boys, or just for the science graduates. At Clear Returns, we’ve created jobs for men and women of all backgrounds and we’re using technology to make the world better for shoppers and retailers. There’s a wealth of career opportunities for entrepreneurs and for people to work with technology and I hope I can inspire young women to consider that this exciting and varied field could be for them.”
Vicky founded and leads Clear Returns, a Glasgow based technology company, that helps enterprise ecommerce and multichannel retailers optimize their profits by reducing the amount of returns they receive. Their predictive analytics software services help retailers cut operational costs, retain more revenue post sale and improve the customer experience, by helping shoppers keep more of what they buy online.
