About the recognition
The yearly honor, which recognizes excellence in advertising, marketing and media, highlighted Ann’s decades of work as a market-facing executive. She served across several industries, including live event gaming, sustainability and consumer retail. Most recently she has worked in Super League’s network of metaverse games and proprietary ad tech offerings. As Chairman and CEO, Ann fuels the company’s vision of empowering developers, energizing players and entertaining fans across the globe. Under her leadership, Super League’s partners reach their audiences through Super League’s network of more than 75 million passionate gamers. Super League has created global metaverse environments, stable gaming influencers and hours of gameplay content across major social media and digital video platforms.
“I am honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with such a visionary and innovative group,” said Hand. “Today’s consumers are smart, savvy, and know what they want. Women, not only on the executive side but in audiences too, are key to moving the needle when it comes to brand awareness. While unique offerings are a key to success, what is just as important is the team you build around yourself. We’ve built a great culture that reflects what we stand for. Our mission is to create empowering, inclusive spaces for our players and creators. We get our audience because we are our audience. We believe living those values leads to richer outcomes for our brand partners as well.”
Before joining SLG, Ann served as CEO of Project Frog, a venture-backed firm to democratize greener, more affordable buildings. Previously, she held a variety of senior executive positions with BP plc. Most notably, she was Senior Vice President at Global Brand Marketing & Innovation. There, she oversaw the entire brand portfolio of B2C and B2B brands, including BP, Arco, am/pm, and Aral.
