ATech’s owner and Managing Director Sarah-Jane Peterschlingmann has been announced as a finalist in the 26th annual Women in Technology (WiT) Awards for the 2023 Excellence in Industry Leadership Award.

The prestigious Queensland awards celebrate and recognise the remarkable women across STEM whose creativity, innovation, expertise, advocacy and leadership are driving positive change for Queenslanders and inspiring more females to engage in STEM careers or study fields.

Starting out as a web developer in 2007, Ms Peterschlingmann has grown Brisbane-based ATech to become a leading mission-critical cloud hosting and web development company with multimillion dollar revenues.

ATech’s impressive list of high calibre clients includes Virgin Australia, Brisbane City Council and Seqwater.

Ms Peterschlingmann said, “I am delighted to be named a finalist for the WiT Awards alongside industry heavy weights and game-changers Fiona Holmstrom and Sharon Hunneybell. The prestigious awards are one of the biggest and longest-running recognition programs for women in STEM in Australia.

“The Excellence in Industry Leadership Award recognises the impact of female leaders inspiring excellence in STEM by empowering the next generation to challenge the status quo and innovate to drive growth and unlock new possibilities. It’s a huge honour.”

Ms Peterschlingmann was among digital innovators, research champions, scientists, technologists and female start-up founders and entrepreneurs from across Australia that have been shortlisted for the 26th annual Women in Technology (WiT) Awards.

This year’s WiT Awards attracted more than 330 nominations across 10 award categories. The winners will be announced at the WiT Awards Gala Dinner at Brisbane's Royal International Convention Centre on Friday 22 September 2023.

WiT Chair Kelly Wilkes said this year's awards theme, We Are The Change, is a tribute to the contribution women are making to help define, shape and grow the digital economy.

"We have refreshed the award categories this year to reflect WiT’s core values: We are the Change, Future Focussed, Stronger Together, Inspiring Excellence and We Lift Each Other Up,” she said.

"It is so important to recognise and celebrate the impact women are having on driving, creating and shaping digitally driven STEM based solutions, innovations and processes that benefit the people of Queensland and beyond.

"Our finalists are passionate, change-making women who have contributed to shaping innovations and transformative ideas landing in their community.”
