entrepreneur in The World Islands, United Arab Emirates
Ella is an enterprise crisis consultant, specializing in data protection and disaster recovery for Fortune 1000 companies. When some of the most prominent businesses in the world find themselves embroiled in front page news-worthy embarrassment, Ella can often be found en route to the company headquarters, prepared to steady the ship, and put things right once more.
Her focus is global policy and alignment of corporate business objectives to optimize organizational agility. Ella has sat on the multiple advisory boards, and previously worked for CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), VMware (NYSE: VMW) and EMC (NYSE: EMC), in both domestic and international capacities. She is a member of Women in Technology International (WITI), and a Northeastern University alumnus, having graduated summa cum laude with dual bachelor’s degrees.
Today, Ella has traded in her C-Suite Stuart Weitzman heels (and sensible data center flats!) for a pair of sandals as she travels the world, teaching others how to avoid her mistakes, and achieve a more harmonious work-life balance. She is currently writing a memoir of her unbelievable decade in corporate America.
