On 14th June the winners of our Woman of the Year Awards 2023 were announced live and were celebrated at our up and coming Singapore, London and New York Forums.

Woman of the Year – EMEA

OVERALL WINNER: Kemi Bolarin, GXO Logistics

Kemi Bolarin is Head of Treasury – Europe, at GXO Logistics, Inc., and Treasury Today’s 2023 Woman of the Year EMEA overall winner.

Woman of the Year – EMEA

HIGHLY COMMENDED WINNER: Brigitta Kocherhans, Siemens Healthineers AG

Brigitta Kocherhans joined Siemens Healthineers as Head of Treasury in 2015, when the treasury team comprised just four employees. Under her leadership, that number has grown to more than 100, split equally between men and women on a global level. It has taken time to achieve that level of diversity, however – in 2017, just 17% of the team were female.

Woman of the Year – APAC

OVERALL WINNER: Rania Ali Alkatiri, PT Goto Gojek Tokopedia Tbk (‘GoTo’)

The overall winner of this year’s Woman of the Year APAC award is Rania Ali Alkatiri, Head of Treasury at Indonesian technology giant GoTo Group. When she was born in Saudi Arabia, Rania’s career prospects were limited to becoming a housewife, nurse or teacher – and even when her family moved to Malaysia, there was little expectation that Rania’s generation of young, Muslim women would be able to pursue a professional career in industry. Today, however, Rania holds a highly influential role at the holding company of Indonesia’s largest digital ecosystem, which contributes around 2% of the country’s GDP.
