BALTIMORE, MD, March 03, 2022 – Think Systems Inc., a privately-owned national management consulting firm that provides both private and public entities with organizational solutions and strategic hiring, is pleased to announce that Rachel Mushahwar, Director of North America Partner and Channel Sales at AWS, will be the closing keynote speaker at Think Innovate 2022.

Think Innovate 2022 is a two-day technology and operations innovation conference for C-Level executives, business owners, and government executives slated to be the executive networking event of the year in the Baltimore – Washington metropolitan region. 

“We are so excited that Rachel has agreed to be a keynote speaker,” said Tony Gruebl, founder, and CEO of Think. “She is a leader in technology, a dynamic thinker, and passionate speaker who can talk on an array of subjects ranging from business and technology to women in leadership.”

As head of North America Partner Sales at AWS, Mushahwar is evolving the organization to be the new customer-and revenue-scaling engine for AWS by leveraging partners to accelerate growth, drive innovation and shape the future. She is a customer-obsessed global leader with 25 years of experience developing, implementing, and selling technology.

An award-winning engineer, Mushahwar started out in heavy highway construction as a civil engineer but pursued computer programming and realized her skillset was better suited to solving customer problems than writing code.

With roots in Enterprise IT, she is most comfortable in data centers, enabling companies to realize the value of innovative technologies from the edge to the cloud.

Before joining AWS, Mushahwar served as Vice President and General Manager at Intel Corporation, overseeing US Sales Enterprise, Government and Next Wave Cloud Providers. She led a $5 billion sales and marketing organization with a focus on delivering end-to-end solutions that addressed real-world business problems across Artificial Intelligence, 5G, Autonomous Everything, IOT, HPC, Security, and everything in between.

Prior to Intel, Mushahwar has also held engineering and technology roles at DHL, Fujitsu Consulting, American Express and Analysts International Corporation.

Mushahwar is an active supporter of STEM education programs and an advocate for providing the next-up generations with opportunities to build the future we all want to live in.

She has been featured in Forbes Magazine, Wall Street Journal Live and NBC Press: Here, among other top media outlets. She has been named to industry lists such as “2022 Channel Chiefs” by CRN, “Top Ten Women in Technology” by Chain Store Age, and “Top Industry Transformers” by Women’s Wear Daily. Additionally, Mushahwar serves on the Board of Directors for the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.
