The last couple of weeks have seen SugarCRM’s Chief Product Officer Lila Tretikov getting her due. First came accolades from the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, and the organizations they run. Over 1700 entries were submitted this year; Lila took Bronze honors as Female Executive of the Year. The awards are selected by a group of more than 200 business executives from around the world; the full list of winners can be found here.
A week after the Stevies were released, Lila was one of the executives profiled by the USA Today in an article called “Women band together, make inroads into tech.” The article discusses the presence and role of female engineers in Silicon Valley, and includes statistics about the percentage of women majoring in computer science and engineering fields. The article quotes Lila and offers insight into her background.
