Port Washington, NY, June 22, 2022 — The NPD Group today announced that CT Lab is honoring Brianca German Williamson, account manager in the consumer technology practice, with a Black Leaders in Consumer Technology Award. The awards shine a special spotlight on seven African-American leaders in the CT space who are driving the industry forward and making history in the process.
In her role, German Williamson helps leading consumer technology brands and manufacturers grow their business by identifying opportunities and challenges through data analytics. She is passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and cultivated that passion at NPD by being part of a team that created NPD’s DEI Advisory Board, which she currently sits on. German Williamson also chartered and co-chairs NPD’s Black Employee Resource Group and works with a team to provide pro-bono consulting to Black-owned businesses.
“We are thrilled to congratulate Brianca on receiving the Black Leaders in Consumer Technology Award from CT Lab,” said Brad van Dillen, president of the consumer technology practice at NPD. “Bri’s passion can be felt in all aspects of her role. Through her work on the consumer tech team and DEI Advisory Board, Bri’s knowledge and collaborative nature make her a go-to resource and partner for clients and colleagues alike. We are lucky to have her as a leader in the consumer tech industry.”
CT Lab’s 2022 Black Leaders in Consumer Technology Award list is featured on the Dealerscope website, including first-hand accounts of the honorees’ career paths, challenges they’ve faced along the way, and advice they’d give to non-Black colleagues to support the inclusion of Black people in the industry.
