Stina Ehrensvard Wins 2018 Female Executive of the Year

July 5, 2018 2 minute read

Today, we are excited to announce that Yubico’s CEO and Founder, Stina Ehrensvard, was named Female Executive of the Year by the Women World Awards for the second year in a row!

This news comes on the heels of several major announcements that we’ve shared over the past few weeks — YubiKey for iOS, FIPS 140-2 YubiKey Series, Andreessen Horowitz investment, FIDO2 passwordless logins — and we couldn’t be happier to keep the momentum going by celebrating Yubico’s founder and the milestones we’ve achieved together.

The Women World Awards are an annual industry and peers recognition program honoring women in business and the professions and organizations of all types and sizes from around the world. The program encompasses the world’s best in leadership, innovation, organizational performance, and new products and services from every major industry in the world.

The Female Executive of the Year category highlights individual women whose accomplishments in the last year set an impressive standard for the company as well as industry norms. Stina was selected as the Gold Winner in this category due to her significant contributions and innovations to advance the current state of internet security. Most notably, Yubico’s work in developing FIDO2 and driving new paths for the next generation of online security: passwordless logins.

“It’s an honor to be named a winner by Women World Awards,” said Stina. “These awards are an encouraging reminder that each year, Yubico is one step closer to seeing our vision of a safer internet for all become a reality. I’m proud of everything the Yubico team has done to get us there, and has been able to accomplish over the last year.”
