The Women’s Security Council (WSC) granted BodilSonesson, Vice President of Global Sales, Axis Communications, its Woman of the Year Award 2013 in the manufacturer category. The WSC award honors the top female professionals in the physical security industry in a variety of categories.
“I’m truly honored to receive this recognition from the WSC,” says Bodil Sonesson, Vice President Global Sales, Axis Communications. “Research shows that having gender diversity within management teams and executive boards significantly improves the bottom line. Although I think that we still have a long way to go within the industry.”
The WSC Founding Committee along with select WSC members reviewed more than 100 submissions from across the global physical security industry and presented the winners at last night’s WSC Women of the Year Awards Celebration at ISC West, Las Vegas, USA. Sonesson was selected due to her leadership within the security industry and within Axis—and the ways in which she has contributed to the business community.
“Ms. Sonesson is a tremendous example for women in our industry as her systematic determination to promote women inside of Axis, as well as outside our industry has helped propel the spotlight on successful female professionals within our market. Furthermore, she’s delivered many inspirational speeches on women’s issues at events around the world,” says Rhianna Daniels, Founding Committee Member, Women’s Security Council.
