Tracey Welson-Rossman

TraceyWRI’m a Founding Member and Chief Marketing Officer at Chariot Solutions, a leading Philadelphia area enterprise application and mobile development consulting firm, and the Founder of TechGirlz, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring teenage girls to consider careers in technology.

As CMO of Chariot Solutions, I understand what makes the IT community tick and what resonates with them. I’m responsible for branding, marketing, and managing our sales team and am someone who takes market trends and turns them into business opportunities.

Twice recognized as a top place to work in Philadelphia, Chariot Solutions has grown from its initial staff of 10 to over 50 full time employees, over 90% of whom are technologists. Our employees also speak at conferences and are often quoted in the media.

My role at Chariot Solutions is only part of my work: I believe that it’s critical for this generation of women to empower, mentor, and guide the next.

And I saw a hole not being addressed–the dearth of girls believing that technology is a promising career for them. I founded TechGirlz to help to address this, and it’s gratifying that interest in this non-profit continues to grow.

I also work to strengthen the community as a whole. I’m the Founder and current Chair of the annual Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference. ETE attracts world-renowned thought leaders in cutting-edge technologies and serves as a community forum for regional technology companies.

I’m also a Founding Board Member of Philadelphia Startup Leaders, dedicated to growing technology startup businesses and the largest and most active community of startup entrepreneurs in the Philadelphia.

I recently was honored as one of 40 Women to Watch over 40 worldwide. I am a board member for the Philadelphia Economy League and Creating IT Futures. I am currently an adviser for Roar for Good.
