Beacon’s CAO, Jennifer Skrapits, Wins Excellence in Corporate Culture Award

Beacon Platform is pleased to announce that its Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), Jennifer Skrapits, has won the Excellence in Corporate Culture Award from Markets Media’s Annual Women in Finance (WIF) Awards.

Markets Media Group recently announced its 8th Annual WIF Awards, honoring women in the finance industry across multiple categories. Markets Media said, “The U.S. WIF program recognized the most talented and accomplished women across the capital markets business: buy-side and sell-side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, and fintech start-ups.”

“I am honored by this award and feel very privileged to not only be among these accomplished women in finance but to also work at a company with such a dynamic and diverse culture,” said Jennifer Skrapits. 

In Jennifer’s role, she champions a mission-driven culture of collaboration and an inclusive one that values people, praises effort, and rewards results.  In addition to building the HR team to support Beacon’s ongoing growth, Jennifer’s focus is to optimize people-centered activities including attraction, retention, and development while continuing to ensure these efforts support the growth of both the company and its individual team members. 

“We are thrilled Jennifer won the Excellence in Culture award. Her commitment to Beacon is unparalleled. Jennifer has been instrumental to building and expanding our culture of putting clients first, empowering our employees, and hiring candidates with the ability to consistently deliver an excellent product to our clients,” said Kirat Singh, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Beacon.
