ALOM President and CEO, Hannah Kain was also on the short list of finalists for Business Leader of the Year.
Launched in 1997 in Silicon Valley as an e-commerce pioneer, ALOM today is a leader in providing global supply chain solutions powered by advanced technology. Developing technology that brings visibility and ensures on-time and accurate processing of hundreds of thousands of daily orders is what gives the company, and its customers a competitive advantage.
“ALOM culture is based on quality, innovation, and workplace diversity. Recruiting premier IT talent in Silicon Valley is highly competitive. As I have shaped the culture in ALOM as women-owned company, my focus has always been to develop and maintain an inclusive culture regardless of gender, race, ethnicity or age. Because of this culture we have been successful in attracting and hiring highly skilled female IT professionals looking for a workplace environment to be challenged, grow, and feel fulfilled. We have also attracted highly skilled male professionals who thrive in this environment. Our deep understanding of technology allows us to add exceptional value in our customers’ supply chain,” said Kain.
Since its launch in 2015 the Women in IT Awards have recognized women in technology in London and New York, with new launches in Asia, Ireland and San Francisco. Organized by business-technology site Information Age, the Women in IT Awards Silicon Valley acts as a flagship and high-profile platform to support the industry in its mission to tackle the issue of gender imbalance in the numbers of women in technology by showcasing the achievements of women in the sector and identifying new role models.

“We are proud to be part of this inspiring community of women visionaries, inventors, scientists and leaders. We are thankful to Women in IT for demonstrating the powerful role women have in defining Silicon Valley as the global technology capital of the world, and to Intel for sponsoring the award”, Kain added.
