On one of my first days here, Oneupweb’s Founder and CEO Lisa Wehr sat me and a couple other new employees down to tell us a little more about herself and the history of the company. I was shocked when she finished! How could she go from racing sled dogs through the Alaskan wilderness to becoming the Founder and CEO of a digital marketing agency? I’ve since found out.
I learned very quickly that Be Relentless™ isn’t just the tagline at Oneupweb, it’s the lifestyle. And Lisa Wehr continues to serve as a testament of how far this frame of mind can take you. The advisory board sifting through the hundreds of nominations for the 2010 Enterprising Women of the Year award must have agreed because they’ve just named her a winner of a 2010 Enterprising Woman of the Year award. And we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Despite a collapsed economy, Lisa led by example. She stayed focused and determined—relentless in her pursuit to tread through the economic sludge. And she did just that.
We’re thrilled that our leader has received such a distinction. As an employee, it gives me great honor and comfort to know that despite the nation’s current economic circumstances, our CEO did an exemplary job of towing us all through it. And a result of her relentless leadership, Oneupweb has become a stronger company.
2009 was not kind to many businesses, and unfortunately, many are still fighting their way out of the economic rubble the recession left in its wake. But this award serves as proof that a relentless mindset can carry nearly anyone or any company through just about anything. Congratulations Lisa!
