BGZ brands proudly recognizes April Feller, Owner and Chairman of the Board, as one of six recipients of the 2019 Women in Consumer Technology Legacy Awards for her achievement in Consumer Tech.

Women in Consumer Technology is an organization that promotes the advancement of women in the CT industry. The Legacy Awards honor “exceptional women who are transforming the consumer technology industry through leadership in the retail, sales and marketing, integration, publishing and trade association segments.”

"It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since we started our proud CES tradition of recognizing truly inspirational women in the consumer technology industry," said Carol Campbell, founder of Women in CT. "Year after year we've seen continued growth from women across all industry sectors, and a corresponding uptick in the number of impressive nominations we receive for the Legacy Awards. This year was the most difficult yet to select six recipients from such a talented pool, so congratulations to the class of 2019 for this hard-earned honor.”

Feller’s role has taken many forms at BGZ brands—notably founder, CFO, and now Chairman of the Board. Upon accepting her award, she spoke of her first job at the age of 12, counting worms for the Eastern Idaho Bait company. She reminded women that, “We have the capability to make a difference if we are willing to get our hands dirty and do whatever it takes.”

Feller continues to oversee key decisions in the direction of BGZ brands and serves to protect the alignment of the original core values that built the company.
