The Most Influential CEO in the Window Treatment Industry

Innovation and visionary leadership are essential to success; embodying these qualities distinguish companies and leaders from the pack, which in turn gain recognition that validate this excellence.

Recently, our very own Ian Austin, CEO of Blindata, was recognised with a prestigious ‘Most Influential CEO’ award by CEO Review.

A legacy of dedication

Ian’s journey in the window treatment sector began in 2017 working on the market-redefining shutter ordering platform for Tropical Blinds. His time within the sector has, from the very beginning, been one of a consistent commitment to innovation, customer satisfaction and industry definition.

Under Ian’s leadership since Ascend acquired Blindata in February, Blindata has – with a renewed energy – continued to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Setting the gold standard

The accolade of ‘Most Influential CEO’ is no small achievement. The recognition Ian has been given is a testament to the standards his leadership sets.

Ian’s vision is transforming the way we and our customers think about and approach software for window treatments, making them more than just background or functional pieces, but immersive experiences that become vital components which contribute to the overall success, efficiency and performance of the businesses we support worldwide.

A focus on sustainability

One of the cornerstones of our leadership – past and present – is an unwavering commitment to sustainability. Recognising the potential environmental impacts of the industry as a whole, we have for years spearheaded initiatives focused on sustainable production processes and waste reduction through manufacturing optimisations.

This approach has not only benefited our planet but has also set a benchmark and standard for our customers to enjoy and leverage.

A visionary leader

To be influential requires more than just business acumen and presence; it demands foresight, empathy and an unwavering commitment to the betterment of an industry and community at large. Ian’s recognition as the Most Influential CEO is a testament to his vision, passion and relentless pursuit of excellence in what we do for the global Window Treatment market.

What’s next?

With the accolade under his belt, Ian remains committed to and focussed on steering Blindata towards even greater heights as we navigate through and deliver on our transformation strategy over the coming weeks and months ahead.

Whilst awards are a wonderful acknowledgment of past achievements, they serve to the whole team as further motivation to continue setting new standards and exploring innovative possibilities. The entire Blindata team extends our congratulations to Ian for this well-deserved recognition and remain excited about the future under his direction.

Thank you to all our clients, partners and team members around the world for your continued trust and support. It is with your backing and belief – in the journey we’re embarking on together – that gives us the incredible levels of confidence and reassurance that we will achieve the goals we have set out and can strive for even greater results in the future.
