October 6, 2020

Elena Gosse, Chief Executive of Brisbane-based AIS Water, has been named the winner of three prestigious, international Gold Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

On 2nd October, Gosse was named the Gold winner for Woman of the Year - Manufacturing award; Gold winner for Most Innovative Company of the Year - More Than 10 Employees award and Gold winner for Achievement in Organisation Recovery award.

The world’s premier business awards for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organisations they run, this year the Stevie Awards for Women in Business attracted more than 1,500 entries from around the globe in more than 100 categories.

Winners were decided by 180 business professionals internationally, split into seven juries.

Commenting on her multiple awards, Gosse stated “I am always delighted to see the work of our company being recognised because we work extremely hard to be the best. We are dedicated to keeping pool water clean and safe, while our technology saves millions of litres of water across our planet.

“To be named a Gold Winner in three categories is quite astounding. It proves that we are making a real difference in competition swimming pools, aquatic centres, resorts and hotels and people’s homes across the world. This kind of global recognition also helps to open the doors to new markets, particularly in the U.S where we are currently focusing a lot of our energy.”

Gosse was named the Gold Winner for Organisation Recovery with a 35% increase in business over the last year despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gosse (pictured) win for Woman of the Year - Manufacturing, reflects her decision to reassess operations to determine new, more efficient ways of working to meet customer demand. Gosse is now working to triple AIS Water’s production.

With innovation central to the ethos and work of AIS Water, it named the Gold Stevie Award winner for the Most Innovative Company of more than 10 employees.

With a passionate conviction that all companies need to be aware of the social and environmental implications of swimming pool water wastage, independent university research demonstrates AIS Water’s technology can save up to 1.6 million litres of water in just one 50 metre swimming pool, in one year.

Gosse advises “awards such as the Stevies help us to generate more awareness not only about our products, but the benefits they offer to enhance the safety, life and environment of the communities in which they operate.”

Stevie Award winners will receive their awards at a virtual award ceremony on 9th December, in place of the Las Vegas, USA ceremony planned pre-COVID.

AIS Water designs and manufactures water disinfection technology for home and commercial swimming pools.
