FinancialForce’s Stewart Monk Wins ‘Outstanding Leadership Award’ at ERP Today Awards
LONDON, September 23, 2022 – Stewart Monk, VP and General Manager International at Certinia, the leading provider of customer-centric business applications across finance, services, and customer success teams, has been named as the winner of the ‘Outstanding Leadership Award’ at this year’s ERP Today Awards.
“It is truly a privilege to have won the ‘Outstanding Leadership Award’ at the ERP Today Awards, a prestigious and competitive awards program,” said Monk. “The fact that a judging panel of industry experts decided that I would be a worthy winner of such a highly regarded award is an honor, while it is also fantastic for both myself and my team at Certinia to have been recognized for all of our hard work during the last two and a half years.”
Scott Brown, President & Chief Executive Officer at Certinia, added: “Stewart has brought such a passion for people that, despite the continuous disruption brought by COVID and other global economic events, he has built a strong organization in EMEA that is positioned to succeed. Stew does more than lead, he makes people want to follow him and he works to maximize their opportunities to excel.” In just two years, Stewart has transformed Certinia EMEA in every respect, with positive change and new energy now visible in every cornerstone of the business. He drove change at a time when other companies were being cautious. Establishing a new EMEA office based in Utrecht showed customers and colleagues alike that Certinia was on a growth curve despite the uncertainty in the economy post-COVID. The proof of the value of this wholescale change is evident in the transformed sales results and growth trajectory of the organization – and the outstanding leadership of Stewart Monk was undoubtedly the major driver.
