Canon Solutions America executive featured in The Cannata Report’s 2017 Women Influencers Issue “Wonder Women” cover story. The Vice President of Enterprise Managed Services was recognized as “Visionary Business Technology Executive”.
Canon Solutions America, Inc. announced that Valerie Belli, Vice President of the Enterprise Managed Services Division, is featured in The Cannata Report’s 4th annual Women Influencers Issue. In the July/August 2017 cover story, which focuses on senior executives and leaders who in part represent the future of business technology, Ms Belli shares the origins of her can-do attitude as well as her approach to ensuring diversity and talent in the workplace.
In 1998, Ms Belli was asked by Canon to start up a division that would cater to large, enterprise clients that would not only want to use more complex technologies to support their critical workflows, but they would also want someone to manage these sophisticated environments for them.
In the article, Belli shares the advice she gives her teams when hiring diverse talent: “I want your team to look like the street,'” said Belli. “I think that it’s important to have that perspective. You have to look like your environment and society. You can’t be biased or you’ll miss out on the possibilities.”
Belli goes on to say, “Simply put, women are counting the women on the other side of the table. If your company doesn’t have women that counts against you because your clients are very diverse, and they are going to take that into account when considering you.”
“Valerie is a forward-thinking and spirited game changer who embodies a unique combination of authenticity, confidence, intelligence and creativity. We admire her for pushing traditional boundaries and forging a career marked by tremendous innovation, dedication and success, and celebrate her achievements at Canon Solutions America that are helping reshape the future of the managed services and imaging industry. It is an honour to shine a light on Valerie as one of our 2017 Women Influencers,” said CJ Cannata, EVP and publisher, The Cannata Report.
