Geraldine Gray named finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year award at the 2020 GRIT Awards℠ and Best Energy Workplaces℠

A trailblazing, modern-day maverick!

It’s a big week for Houston’s biggest independent Salesforce consultancy, Endiem, as we wait to hear whether or not our founder and CEO, Geraldine Gray will scoop the Entrepreneur of the Year award in the 2020 GRIT Awards℠ and Best Energy Workplaces℠ on Tuesday, 13 October.

Experience Energy’s GRIT awards honor the energy industry’s brightest and ‘grittiest’ business people, the ‘modern-day mavericks’, who have blazed a trail for future generations in their companies, their industries, and their communities, using their resilience and determination.

No one fits this definition better than Geraldine. Self-funded from Day One, she has grown Endiem from one-woman-band to the largest independent Salesforce Consulting Partner in Houston, delivering brilliant business technology solutions for clients in the energy sector, including leading lights ENGIE, Sunnova, and Talen Energy. The fact that 90% of clients at Endiem are direct referrals from existing customers speaks to the quality of work delivered, all under Geraldine’s fun and fast-paced leadership.

2020 has been a year that has taken a large dose of GRIT for the whole community, but despite the challenges, Geraldine has actually scaled up her business in terms of team, revenue and even location, with the recent purchase of a new office in central Houston to house the growing Endiem family.

Commenting on the nomination, Gray says, “The calibre of fellow nominees speaks to the incredible depth and diversity of talent in the energy community and I am thrilled to be amongst this group of high performing and inspirational leaders. Endiem stands for everything I believe in - that is delivering the highest quality and most innovative solutions to customers that are a joy to serve. To be recognized for this is a real honor for me and for my team!”

Geraldine’s leadership style is built on equal measures of generosity and empowerment. As the founder of the successful and well recognized professional network Salesforce Women in Tech, Geraldine has actively mentored a growing cohort of female technology professionals to step up and achieve their full career potential.

The whole team at Endiem are delighted that Geraldine has received recognition for her achievements with this fully deserved award nomination.

We wish her the best of luck and our congratulations go to every one of the talented and inspiring people on the nominee list. The winners will be announced at a live, online awards ceremony 2.30pm, Tuesday 13 October. Join us!
