We’re proud to announce Elizabeth Klee – our company’s top tech leader – was awarded a MichiganCIO 2021 CIO of the Year ORBIE Award during a recent ceremony attended by top executives from leading companies across the Great Lakes State. Elizabeth, who joined our company more than seven years ago, was nominated for her leadership and management effectiveness, business value created through technology innovation, and engagement in industry and community endeavors, at Urban Science.

“I accept this award on behalf of my colleagues at Urban Science because this is truly a team honor,” said Klee. “The past year brought many unexpected challenges our way, but together, we found new, creative ways to use our science to help automakers and car dealers find clarity – and business certainty – in some of the most unprecedented and chaotic market conditions we’ve seen.”

Technology is – and will always be – key in positioning our company to deliver scientific, analytical insights and solutions to our clients, and in enhancing our ability to unlock creative, effective and efficient business strategies for automakers and car dealers globally. Equally important, technology is the foundation on which we build an employee experience that promotes connectedness, collaboration and development – regardless of where and when our team members are working around the globe.

“At Urban Science, we live by the #NeverSettle mantra, and I’m inspired to work alongside amazing professionals who harness the power of technology, data analytics and science to solve increasingly complex business challenges for our customers and employees each day,” said Klee. “These efforts are not only integral in empowering our company to deliver best-in-class solutions to our clients, they’re also the underpinnings of Urban Science’s ability to support our people personally and professionally, and I’m grateful to be part of this work.”
