Executive’s Compassionate, Pragmatic Leadership Led to Company Growth and Customer Retention During the Pandemic


ISELIN, N.J. (October 2, 2020)  – Marina Aslanyan, CEO of SmartLinx Solutions – a leading provider of workforce management solutions – has been named the winner of a Stevie® Award in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. Dedicated to helping post-acute care and senior living organizations successfully navigate today’s workforce challenges, SmartLinx is on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.

Marina has been honored in the “Female Executive of the Year – Business Services” category, for her compassionate and pragmatic approach to leadership, supporting SmartLinx customers and employees alike as the world adapted to the “new normal” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout her role as CEO, Marina has spearheaded SmartLinx’s mission to transform the long-term care industry by empowering providers and their teams with the technology they need to deliver exceptional care.

Marina has successfully led SmartLinx’s growth and advanced several company milestones despite pandemic-related challenges. Her recent accomplishments range from major product announcements that reduce the spread of infection in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, to the creation of a comprehensive customer support plan. 

SmartLinx has experienced 6x revenue growth under Marina's leadership. Today, the company represents more than one in five of all assisted living facilities and is the only workforce management platform focused solely on long-term care.

“At the outset of COVID-19, SmartLinx made it a priority to support our customers – many of which care for senior residents who are particularly vulnerable to contagious diseases, like COVID-19. We made it our mission to do everything we could – from providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to developing the tools they need to meet changing CDC guidelines and federal regulations,” said SmartLinx CEO Marina Aslanyan. “We’re proud to continue supporting and partnering with our clients during these difficult times and beyond.”

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.  SmartLinx won in the Female Executive of the Year category for Business Services.

Details about the Stevie Awards for Women in Business and the list of Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners in all categories are available at

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries. 

Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “In a year like no other in our lifetimes, we’ve produced a cohort of amazing, Stevie-winning women, organizations, and achievements like no other.  At all times our winners show themselves to be fearless and indomitable, but their leadership and example are especially valued this year.  We congratulate all of our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie winners.  We look forward to celebrating them during our December 9 virtual ceremony, and to hearing from some of them during our Women|Future Conference on November 12-13.”
