Productboard Excellence Award winners announced!

Productboard Excellence Award winners announced!

We launched the inaugural Productboard Excellence Awards at our Product Excellence Summit and are thrilled to introduce the three winners. 

The Productboard Excellence Awards celebrate exemplary Productboard customers committed to the three pillars of Product Excellence and use Productboard to build products that matter, together.

We asked the Productboard team and our customers to nominate product managers and leaders who played a pivotal  role in bringing the values of Product Excellence to their organizations. We asked them to share their strategic, visionary, and collaborative stories about how Productboard helped them further commit to the art and science of Product Excellence. 

Without further ado, we are thrilled to present the winners of our first-ever Productboard Excellence Awards!

The Productboard Excellence Award Winners

Awarded for using Productboard and the Portal to capture and leverage customer insights to improve your product vision

 WINNER: Gaurang Telang, Senior Director of Product, HERE Technologies

Gaurang Telang has done an incredible job painting a vision for several hundred employees across the product org and global team in rolling out Productboard. HERE has been able to unite their global product management team, help their cross-functional teams find answers more easily by using one system of record, and making Productboard the single source of truth across the company. 

Excellence in Product Strategy

Awarded for using Productboard to help create and communicate the clearest product strategy and aligning your entire organization around key strategic business objectives.

WINNER: Michael Cerda, VP Product, Disney+

Michael Cerda has been a strong driver of change within the product organization of Disney’s Streaming Services group. They have moved away from disjointed spreadsheets and now use Productboard as their single source of truth. Michael and his team have leveraged Productboard to quickly and easily communicate product progress to the business in an agile and efficient way.

Excellence in Product Collaboration 

Awarded for rallying everyone in your organization around the roadmap and effectively collaborating across teams. 

WINNER: Michelle Monaco, Principal PM, Limelight Health

The insurance industry is notorious for being built on legacy systems. However, Limelight Health’s Principal Product Manager, Michelle Monaco, has led the product team to accomplish an agile transformation by using Productboard to foster greater internal collaboration and transparency. 

Michelle and her team use the Productboard roadmap as a forward-looking document to keep stakeholders in the loop. Michelle’s Productboard roadmap also provides real-time updates on key product strategy, what they’re planning to build, and when it will be delivered, giving them greater overall visibility and ensuring alignment.  

Congratulations to all of our winners and nominees! We are thrilled to have you leading the way on the journey to Product Excellence.
