President and COO of San Diego Technology Start-up to be Honored at the San Diego Business Journal’s Annual Event

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Oct. 29, 2015) – Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, president and chief operating officer of RippleNami, a cloud-based visualization platform, has been named a finalist for the 22nd Annual Women Who Mean Business Awards. The awards program is presented by San Diego Business Journal and honors women who have made a difference in their communities, blazed a trail for others and are leaving an indelible mark on business in San Diego.

As president and COO, Connolly-LaBelle has transitioned RippleNami from an idea to a fully operational, globally expanding company. Using her vast experience in technology and finance, she developed the strategic roadmap that enabled RippleNami to successfully raise angel investments. Since the company’s launch, she has overseen the product and technology teams in developing web and mobile applications and established corporate contracting and development procedures.

Prior to joining the executive team at RippleNami, Connolly-LaBelle served in executive roles at both private and publicly traded corporations, leading acquisitions totaling more than $2 billion in revenue. As CEO of PathCentral, a global cloud-based technology and services company, Connolly-LaBelle was able to transition the company from a founder-run business to strategic global growth company, resulting in a successful acquisition of both the laboratory services and technology divisions. She also served as president and CEO of A-Life Medical, Inc., which was also successfully acquired under her leadership.

Connolly-LaBelle and her fellow finalists will be honored at a reception hosted by San Diego Business Journal on November 18 at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center.
