Thalia Droussioti, the CEO of international media company Global Listings, has been named a Finalist in the prestigious Female Entrepreneur of the Year in Europe, the Middle East & Africa category in the 14th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business

The Stevie Awards are the world’s premier business awards for Women in Business and recognize the achievements of female executives, entrepreneurs and the organisations they run – worldwide.

Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event in New York on Friday, November 17. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the USA and up to 60 countries worldwide are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast simultaneously on Livestream.

The Stevie Award trophy is one of the world’s most coveted prizes. Since 2002 the Stevie Award has been conferred for achievement in business to organisations and individuals in more than 60 nations. The finalists for this year were chosen by more than 170 professionals worldwide serving on five specialised judging committees.

Michael Gallagher, President of the Stevie Awards, said: “Every year we say that the current crop of Stevies for Women nominations couldn’t be better, and the next year we’re proven wrong! The judges’ scores and comments bear witness to the fact that this year we will honour a truly remarkable class of women and women-led organisations in New York on November 17.”

Thalia Droussioti, founder and CEO of Global Listings said: “It’s an absolute honour to be a finalist in the world’s premier business awards! I’m extremely proud that my achievements have been recognised both as a female CEO and as an entrepreneur who built up an international company from scratch in a very competitive climate. And, it’s super exciting to be considered among a group of top female executives from around the world who each also have their own success stories to tell.”
