According to Connected World magazine, each woman on this list has demonstrated exemplary leadership and accelerated the growth of M2M while inspiring other future M2M industry advocates.

Patricia Sharma, President and CEO of Multi-Tech Systems, took the helm in April 2007, succeeding her husband, Dr. Raghu Sharma, who passed away. Dr. Sharma was a key innovator in the M2M marketplace whose entrepreneurial and engineering spirit formed the Multi-Tech culture from its beginnings in 1970. Patricia Sharma built on the success of the quality hardware offering and transitioned Multi-Tech into a more comprehensive solutions provider, working with companies across many vertical markets to help them achieve the shortest path to connectivity. Through her leadership, Multi-Tech has capitalized on its deep technical knowledge to become uniquely positioned to solve individual customer challenges.

“Success is not just about the bigger title. At this point in their life, for the Women of M2M, it’s about enjoying what they do and giving something back. It’s helping other women enjoy the same sense of accomplishment,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine and president, Specialty Publishing Co. “Each of the women being recognized has used her passion and commitment to propel this great industry forward. And with their guidance, those following in their footsteps will continue this tradition.”
