Quite simply, digital products are more important than ever. 

The Product Awards will honor 30 product-forward teams from thousands of nominations, under the guidance of an independent advisory board composed of five product management leaders from diverse industries, geographies, and backgrounds. The 2022 Award Advisory Board is composed of Google Product Lead, Neha Taleja; Transfix Product Lead, Patrick Blute; Senior Product Lead, Iryna Krutenko; former Transformco Product Director, Maheep Bhalla; and Product Leader Felipe Gasparino. More than 3,000 nominations have already been received.

Meanwhile, Products That Count has also collected hundreds of nominations for the inaugural Global CPO 20, celebrating the 20 most influential and innovative CPOs (Chief Product Officers) leading the digital transformations across the globe. This awards ceremony will recognize the growing impact of the CPO now and in the future. 

According to Products That Count Chief Product Officer Renée Niemi, “As more and more companies are pushing to be product-led, CPOs are taking on more impactful roles. These executives are the navigators of the digital revolution, and the Global CPO 20 is going to help us recognize them.”

“We are proud to partner with Products That Count in celebrating the innovators and disruptors breaking new ground in customer experience and harnessing the power of advanced technologies,” said Lisa Mitnick, Capgemini Intelligent Product Group Offer Leader. “As a pioneer in helping companies design, build, and scale next generation sustainable connected products and platforms, Capgemini recognizes world-class product management as a positive force for change, and we are delighted to support this initiative.”

According to Jennifer Vancini, General Partner at Mighty Capital, “Product innovation has become mission critical across all industries. It’s been exciting to see the product ecosystem blossom and create a whole new industry and thousands of jobs.”
