“I couldn’t be more honored to win this award alongside so many other incredible individuals. And I’m glad to have won this award for my work at Very — I have never been at a company where I've grown more or felt more supported and challenged (yes, the two can co-exist).”

As CMO at Very, Emily Maxie collaborates with Very's product and sales teams to increase brand awareness and generate demand. Emily believes that a rock-solid product is the cornerstone of success, and Very's reputation for engineering excellence is what attracted her to the company in the first place.

“Emily has been a fantastic leader at Very from Day 1,” Ryan Prosser, CEO at Very, said. “She is excellent at what she does, fights the right fights, and is fearless about standing up for what's right.”

Since joining Very in 2017, Emily has led our marketing efforts, creating strategic plans to support Very's mission to become a world-class development firm. She loves diving deep into technical topics to communicate complex ideas in an approachable way.

Throughout her career, Emily has been passionate about advancing the careers of women in tech. She regularly speaks at regional and national events on the topic of gender parity and is dedicated to finding creative solutions to move the needle, one woman at a time.

“We are so proud to reward Emily Maxie for her outstanding 2020 achievements,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nomination officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “This year’s group of winners are clearly leading by example in the global business community.”
