To be recognized as an influential person in Silicon Valley is an incredible accomplishment given the collection of local technology and business luminaries that lead some of the world’s most powerful companies. Descriptors that usually come to mind are “intelligent, determined, strong, outgoing, driven, respected.”
What’s even more impressive is when a leader is recognized for those traits while expanding his or her sphere of influence beyond the Bay Area to a global organization not even headquartered in “The Valley.”
Monika Fahlbusch, Chief Employee Experience Officer at BMC, has been recognized by the Silicon Valley Business Journal for her influence and leadership in BMC’s own transformation efforts and as a long-time resident expert who has made her mark in the region. On Monday, Monika was named one of the publication’s “Women of Influence for 2016.”
In her feature profile (available by subscription), Monika is rightfully acknowledged to have a “big, exciting job on her hands” as she leads a cultural change at BMC. It goes on to note:
“The shift complements the company’s overall transition, which means she not only has to be a leader, but she has to identify and recruit leadership company-wide…Fahlbush is also spearheading the initiative to create the “office of the future,” a project that will enhance company pride through design, space, technology and amenities.”
Monika’s leadership and influence at BMC have had a profound impact on the company as a desired workplace that attracts some of the best talent in the industry. As a result, BMC was recently recognized as one of America’s Best Employers of 2016 in a list compiled by Forbes of the top 500 companies with more than 5,000 employees.
Please join us in congratulating Monika on this well-deserved recognition and accomplishment!
