Hausler, Linthacum and Grey played vital roles in building the
infrastructure for UiPath’s partner ecosystem. As women spearheading
channel initiatives, Hausler, Linthacum and Grey contributed greatly to
UiPath’s unprecedented growth of customers, partners and revenue.
Specific achievements include:

  • Hausler executed UiPath’s two first-ever Partner Forward events (in
    the U.S. and EMEA), generating attendance of more than 900 global,
    regional business and technology partners.
  • Linthacum spearheaded the strategy, execution and infrastructure for
    UiPath’s new business partner program creating the unicorn company’s
    first formal partner program. She developed foundational assets,

education, delivery and selling frameworks needed to be successful,”

UiPath. “Our achievements thus far would not have been possible without
the dedication from Janette, Christine and Caroline. I’m extremely proud
to work alongside these women – and am excited for them to receive this
