June 27, 2022 LONDON: GBG, the global expert in digital identity, has been shortlisted in Computing’s Digital Technology Leaders Awards in three categories.
GBG has been named as one of the best large organisations to work in digital, while Head of Data Insights Louise Maynard-Atem and Group CIO Mark Mamone have both been nominated for individual awards.
Computing's Digital Technology Leaders Awards exist to “recognise and celebrate the achievements of the people and companies who are really making it happen at the coal face of the digital technology stack: from website design and coding to UX and project management, from scrum masters and product managers, all the way up to the CDO.”
Details on the three awards GBG has been shortlisted for can be found below:
This nomination follows a year of record revenue, the roll-out of Work When and Where You Want and 95% of team members recommending GBG as a ‘Great Place to Work’. The award honours companies that “train and retain the brightest and the best digital talent by creating an environment where talent can grow and thrive.”
James Miller, Chief People Officer at GBG, comments: “We strive to make GBG a great place to work and trust in our team members to flex the location and hours of their work so they can find a greater work-life balance. It is a great honour to be shortlisted as one of the best places to work.”
GBG’s Head of Data Insights, Louise Maynard-Atem, has been shortlisted for her work in promoting data best practice. The award celebrates individuals who have “worked to promote digital practices and ways of working, both inside and outside the organisation.”
As well as spearheading GBG’s new Data Insights Team, Louise regularly addresses industry events and wider audiences on prime-time radio and television, most recently on ITV Tonight, providing expert insight on how people can protect their data from fraud. Louise also volunteers as Research Lead for Women in Identity, a non-profit that drives the digital identity industry to build more inclusive solutions, promoting civic, social and economic empowerment around the world.
Louise Maynard-Atem, Head of Data Insights at GBG, comments: “GBG is a data and technology company first and foremost, so that means we rigorously champion data and digital best practice throughout our organisation. I'm absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for the digital ambassador of the year award in recognition of the work I've been able to do since joining GBG.
As Group CIO and self-proclaimed ‘Chief Geek’, Mark Mamone drives digital transformation at GBG ensuring the company has the tech and data in place to deliver for customers and team members alike. This award recognises “outstanding leadership that is having a clear impact on performance and delivering the organisation's digital vision.”
Under Mark’s leadership, GBG has increased its product release cadence more than fivefold in some areas, driving significant company growth, as well as saving millions of pounds through tech efficiencies and synergies. Mark has also helped GBG pivot to a complete remote-working strategy with zero service impact during the global lockdown.
Mark Mamone, Group Chief Information Officer at GBG, comments: “As we help our customers build trust in a digital world, we too have to adapt to new realities of doing business. GBG’s own digital transformation during the pandemic has been a tremendously exciting time, enabled and supported by an awesome team. So it’s with humility and pride that I’ve been nominated for an award that is really a collective effort.”
