CIO has celebrated the achievements of Fifth Quadrant CEO, Dr Catriona Wallace, as she has been inducted into Australian Businesswomen’s Network’s Hall of Fame, a project designed to recognise the achievements of successful businesswomen. CIO notes that Wallace “is a customer experience futurist”, demonstrated by her ownership of Flamingo Ventures and ACA Research. Beyond this she is also founder of three not-for profits: Indigo Express, Kids in Philanthropy and Out and Up. However it is her work at Fifth Quadrant that takes centre stage. For this she has been awarded 2013 NSW Medium-Sized Business of the Year Award and overall NSW Business of the Year from Telstra Business Awards. It is also stated that she developed Corpreneurism, “which aims to develop and drive the use of entrepreneurial innovation methods in Australian business.”
She is quoted as saying: “I am delighted to join the ABN 2014 Hall of Fame at a time when women entrepreneurs are emerging as a global force for economic growth. I believe strong women leaders and a culture that fosters the rise of feminine archetype in business will result in significantly better outcomes for business and the wider community.”
