    SHE Software CEO, Matthew Elson Nominated for an Oscar

    10 May 2017 - SHE Software Ltd


    Described as the ‘Oscars for the technology industry’, the annual Enterprise Awards in association with the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists celebrate and recognise the very best of the UK’s technology entrepreneurial talent.

    Matthew Elson, CEO, SHE Software is nominated for a 2017 Enterprise Award.

    Focused on the exceptional achievements of founders, the Enterprise Awards has recognised some of Britain’s most inspirational individuals that have achieved prominence in both private and public markets.

    Matthew acquired SHE Software in 2011 and took over full time as CEO in 2014.  After initially turning around and stabilising the business, Matthew has assembled a strong and well-regarded leadership team that has consistently delivered 50%+ per annum growth for SHE’s cloud-based health and safety software solution, Assure.  More recently, the business has successfully launched in Australia and New Zealand.  The shortlisting recognises Matthew’s achievement in making SHE a dynamic and innovative leader in the UK HSE space and a highly sought after place to work.

    Matthew said, “I am delighted (and surprised) to be shortlisted for an Enterprise Award and regard this as vindication for the hard work put in by all of the team at SHE to make our business so successful and such a great place to work.”

    John O’Connell, Chairman of the Scaleup Group and founder of the Enterprise Awards, said, “Entrepreneurship is hugely important to the UK’s economy, never more so now than in these rather uncertain times. These awards are all about celebrating the personal achievements of great business minds, to give them the recognition they deserve but also to inspire more people to have the courage to launch their own businesses and to use technology to bring their ideas to life.”
