Colt CEO Keri Gilder awarded Outstanding Female Executive at PTC23

We’re proud to announce that Keri Gilder, our CEO, has been awarded Outstanding Female Executive at PTC’23, the Pacific Telecoms Council annual event which took place in the tropical climes of Honolulu.  The award recognises Keri’s relentless drive to challenge and disrupt the traditional telecoms world and her ongoing commitment to a fair, equitable and sustainable industry.

The award is the latest industry recognition for Keri and for our business.  Most recently at the Layer123 Network Transformation Awards, Keri was named Outstanding Contributor, and we won awards for SD WAN Service Excellence and New Service Innovation. Recognised in the top 1% of global businesses for sustainability in the EcoVadis ratings, we were also awarded Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Company of the Year in the European Network Services Industry excellence category, and secured World Communication Awards for Customer Experience; Best Network Transformation Initiative; and Data Services Inventory Matching and Automated Settlement.

We’re delighted for Keri: it’s just the beginning of Awards Season in 2023 and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
