CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (July 17, 2017) – ABB OPTICAL GROUP Chief Technology Officer Emily Ashworth has been recognized as one of the Most Influential Women in Optical by Vision Monday, a leading optical trade publication.

The program honors women who make a difference in the optical industry through their leadership, talent and innovative ideas.

"I share this honor with the incredibly talented team I work with at ABB," said Ashworth, who oversees the company's information technology department. "I am proud of the focus, dedication and passion for excellence that they bring to work each and every day."

"The fact is that more than 85 percent of all orders come into ABB electronically and ABB's web properties receive more than 25,000 visits daily, which makes Emily and her team an integral part of the success we have as a company," said Brad Weinbrum, president of ABB OPTICAL GROUP. "Together they work as one team accountable for driving online business and leading the ongoing development of ABB's e-commerce platform."

Ashworth has more than 20 years of experience across multiple industries including utilities, manufacturing, telecommunications, distribution and commercial software, as well as extensive experience in enterprise architecture development, business process re-engineering and software selection, integration and implementation.

A resident of Sunny Isles, Ashworth holds bachelor's degrees in industrial engineering and liberal studies from the University of Central Florida and a master's degree in industrial engineering from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
