VMware Shines at ARN’s WIICTA Awards

I’m proud to say that at the recent Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) we had a great representation for VMware Australia – and one winner in a very competitive field.

Alister Dias, Vice President & Managing Director, VMware

Our channel leader, Kerrie-Anne Turner, was announced the winner in the Achievement category.   Well done Kerrie-Anne – we are all very proud of you.

The Achievement award recognises outstanding commitment to the ICT industry through continuous career development and professional achievements. Kerrie-Anne was presented this award for achieving a range of firsts and exemplary results across the Asia Pacific region during her 25-year technology career.

We also had nine outstanding VMware employees nominated across a number of WIICTA Award categories.

Of these nominations, we had an incredible four shortlisted as finalists.  We were one of the companies with the most nominations and the stories from our team included everything from driving VMware’s involvement in Women in IT and Women in Business initiatives to the implementation and successful delivery of VMware diversity and inclusion initiatives, including our EPIC2 Values and “VMware is Giving Back”.

I’d like to thank and congratulate all those who were nominated:

  • Pam Cass – Shining Star Award
  • Linda Hamill – Shining Star Award
  • Heather Opdam – Community Award
  • Simona Lewis – Technical Award
  • Anita Moorhouse – Shining Star Award
  • Lili Wang – Technical Award
  • Megan Wilson – Rising Star Award
  • Nicole Cadet – Shining Star Award

All of these nominations are a true reflection of the culture we have developed here at VMware and recognise some of the great work that these women have accomplished.

We are immensely proud of all our employees at VMware and this recognition is something that we look forward to building upon in the coming year.
