Australian IT solutions company Tquila ANZ chief executive Jo Masters has been recognised amongst the top 25 women leaders in tech services and consulting of 2019 by market research firm The Software Report.

Announcing its global list of top women tech leaders, The Software Report said that in the Asia Pacific region with Tquila ANZ, Jo Masters was the key driver to tremendous growth in the last three years.

Masters was recognised among a global list of women that included Tamara Alairys, principal at Ernst and Young, Karalee Close, global leader of the Technology Advantage practice at Boston Consulting Group, and Shally Stanley, managing director at Acumen Solutions.

The Software Report said it had evaluated nominations and performed a more detailed review of each nominee based on a series of questions on the candidate's professional capabilities – and looked for "demonstrated technology expertise, longevity in the industry, career progression and current position".

“These exceptional women have developed deep expertise in the technology field, some with distinct specialties, and have progressed rapidly to senior most levels within their organisations. Thousands of women were evaluated resulting in a select set being invited to participate in this year’s process,” The Software Report said.
