In 3 bullets, summarize why this professional or team deserves recognition:

• Since Christy’s arrival at Absolute Software just over two years ago, the company’s revenue has reached uncharted territory - topping more than $100M for the first time in the company’s history – and completed a successful IPO on the Nasdaq to become a dually listed, publicly traded company.

• Christy has confidently and successfully led Absolute through uncertain times in the wake of the global COVID-19 outbreak. Having already invested significantly in remote working capabilities, the company was able to seamlessly, rapidly, and safely mobilize and support its employees to working from home… and when the crisis hit, she asked the entire Absolute team to focus on one thing: helping our customers navigate these trying times.

• Under Christy’s leadership, our teams have come together like never before and are more inspired, motivated and driven than ever to deliver results for our customers, partners and shareholders.

Brief Overview

With deep experience and expertise spanning cybersecurity, enterprise mobility, embedded platforms, IoT, enterprise software, and data science, Christy Wyatt is known as a high-performing leader who takes on challenges and turns them into opportunities for company growth.

Just over two years ago, Absolute Software appointed Christy as President and CEO.
Since her arrival, revenue has reached uncharted territory – topping more than $100M for the first time in the company’s history – and we’re growing in every market, from Enterprise and Government to Education. Absolute is embedded in more than half a billion devices and counting, thanks to expanded partnerships with more than 30 leading device manufacturers. And, we are a dually listed, publicly traded company after recently completing a successful IPO on the Nasdaq with Christy at the helm.

Perhaps most notably, Christy has led Absolute through uncertain times in the wake of the global COVID-19 outbreak. Having already invested significantly in remote working capabilities, the company was able to seamlessly, rapidly, and safely mobilize and support its employees to working from home. So when the crisis hit, she asked the entire Absolute team to focus on one thing: helping our customers navigate these trying times.

Knowing that many would be relying heavily on VPNs to ensure access to corporate networks, we extended our patented Absolute Persistence for VPN service to all customers at no additional cost – in addition to the ability to remotely remediate many employee IT issues using a library of over 100 customer workflows. For our Education customers, we expanded access to Web Usage Analytics, allowing them to track student device usage and engagement as they transitioned to distance learning.

Under Christy’s leadership, there’s no question the Absolute team is more inspired, motivated and driven than ever to deliver results for customers, partners and shareholders.
