Fairfax, VA – 3Pillar Global, a leading developer of innovative digital products, today announced that Jessica Hall, vice president of product strategy and design, has been named a 2019 DCFemTech Award recipient, recognizing her industry leadership in the field of digital design.
“As both a coworker and friend of Jessica, I’m thrilled to see her invaluable contributions to the tech industry recognized,” said David DeWolf, CEO of 3Pillar Global. “She’s tirelessly brought innovative thinking and impressive product design expertise to bear on work for our clients, and she serves as a great role model for other women in the tech industry building their own careers.”
Hall’s award honors her work in design and her achievements in the tech industry. A total of 49 women and nonbinary individuals were selected from a record 704 nominees across three categories: coding, design and data. Hall and the other honorees represent the top 15 percent of their category and were chosen by a panel of 45 judges based on their impact in the workplace, the complexity of their specific focus issue, and their contribution to the greater DC tech community.
“Washington, DC continues to rank as the best city in the nation for women in technology and DCFemTech has played an instrumental role in fostering our inclusive tech ecosystem,” said Brian Kenner, deputy mayor for planning and economic development, in a statement from DCFemTech. “We applaud the work of individuals who are focused on ensuring our tech scene remains vibrant and competitive as this helps foster economic growth and attract the most innovative companies and top talent to DC.”
As 3Pillar’s vice president of product strategy and design, Hall leads teams creating digital products that customers crave and that drive business growth. She is also the author of the upcoming book “The Product Mindset: Succeed in the Digital Economy by Changing the Way Your Organization Thinks” (available fall 2019).
Previously, Jessica built the UX team at CEB, now Gartner, and led the creation of the Newseum’s interactive exhibits and websites. Her work has been recognized by the Web Marketing Association, American Association of Museums, The Webby Awards, Time, Graphic Design USA, Forbes, and The Washington Post. She holds a Masters in Design and Digital Media from the University of Edinburgh and a BA in Journalism from American University.
