Interos CEO and founder recognized for revolutionary approach to and leadership in supply chain risk management
ARLINGTON, Va., August 27, 2020 – Interos, the first and only multi-factor, multi-tier, third party risk management platform, announced today the selection of CEO and founder Jennifer Bisceglie as a finalist in EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Mid-Atlantic awards. The recognition highlights Bisceglie’s leadership efforts in driving innovation and growth to transform the supply chain risk management industry.
With 25 years of industry experience managing risk in the global economy, Bisceglie founded Interos as a supply chain and vendor risk consultancy, providing unique analyst-driven insights. However, keeping pace with the growing complexity of global supply chains required finding a faster way to assess risk-influencing events that occur every day. In 2018, she recognized the emerging power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to address this need, transforming the company into a product-driven organization and establishing the Interos Platform, which delivers a revolutionary, technology-powered approach to real-time risk assessment. A sought-after expert on supply chain risk and business intelligence technologies, and one of a relatively small number of female CEOs in the tech and supply chain spaces, Bisceglie was chosen as a finalist by a national panel of independent judges.
“It is an honor to have been recognized as a finalist for EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020 Mid-Atlantic award,” said Jennifer Bisceglie, CEO and founder of Interos. “Since our founding in 2005, we’ve helped organizations around the world understand and better navigate risks deep within their supply chains. The growth of our team and exponential customer demand tell us that our philosophy has quickly become a business best practice in today’s globalized economy.”
COVID-19 has galvanized a new era of supply chain risk monitoring. With a 500% increase in inbound requests following the pandemic’s outbreak, Interos continues to see a surge in demand as organizations seek to better assess and mitigate risk in real-time. The company has experienced a 961% revenue growth since January 2019 and closed a $20MM Series B funding round in March 2020, alongside announcing plans to triple its year-over-year sales growth.
“Interos’ corporate culture is one of integrity, empathy and a passion for innovation,” Bisceglie added. “Every employee has a role in helping drive the company further toward success, contributing to an astonishing level of diverse experience.”
Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.
Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event in early October and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world.
