Lexion CTO Awarded Prestigious Puget Sound Business Journal 40 Under 40 for 2021

We’re excited to share that our CTO Emad Elwany was honored in the Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 under 40 award for 2021. Each year, the Puget Sound Business Journal identifies people under the age of 40 who are dynamic leaders in the local business community, then shares their stories and celebrates their successes with an awards program.

“Emad is an AI-talent magnet, and a leader that will drive innovation in artificial intelligence in the Puget Sound-area now and for many years to come,” said Gaurav Oberoi, CEO of Lexion. “He is building tech that attracts the best minds in artificial intelligence to Lexion and the Puget Sound-area.”

In 2019, Emad became the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Lexion, an AI-powered contract lifecycle management system. Talented machine learning, NLP, and other technologists choose to work at Lexion even though they can work at any established technology company because they want to work with Emad. Emad is well respected in the field of Applied Machine Learning and is known for his knowledge in Natural Language Processing, and building deeply integrated and scalable AI-powered products. He has published multiple papers in top tier conferences like CHI, NeurIPS and KDD, and holds multiple patents for his work in the fields of machine learning, distributed systems, and enterprise application development.

Emad will be profiled in an upcoming issue of the Puget Sound Business Journal alongside other 40 under 40 honorees. To see the full announcement, please visit: https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/news/2021/07/29/psbjs-40-under-40-class-of-2021-revealed-part-1.html
