NEW YORK, March 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alberto Lopez-Valenzuela, CEO and founder of stakeholder intelligence company alva, is named by PRWeek as one of the 25 most influential people in the field of 2022 communication technologies.
PRWeek launched its Dashboard 25 in 2020. This is a prestigious annual list of the main drivers, agitators and innovators in the field of communication technologies. It celebrates the visionaries and risk takers who drive the industry forward in public relations, media monitoring services, newswires, private equity, social media management, internal client teams and public relations agencies.
Entrepreneur Alberto Lopez-Valenzuela founded alva in 2010 – a stakeholder intelligence company that combines AI with industry analysts to provide public companies with an intelligence solution that encompasses ESG, risk, reputation and media. The platform uses natural language processing to analyze millions of pieces of content daily from more than 500,000 publications in 100 languages and 150 countries.
Alberto is also the author of The Connecting Leader. The book examines how business leaders are connecting business to society, especially in this age of hyper-transparency, interconnectedness, and media anarchy.
Through Alberto’s vision of Stakeholder Intelligence and its potential value to the communications industry, alva helps more than 100 leading companies directly and through partnerships with strategy consulting firms. Stakeholder Intelligence informs how these companies communicate and deliver more sustainable success.
Alberto Lopez-Valenzuela commented: “I am deeply honored to be included in the prestigious PRWeek Dashboard 25. It is a privilege to stand alongside the other winners on the list.
“I believe 2022 will be a game-changing year, not just for alva but for the entire communications technology space. The relationship between business and society is changing rapidly. Businesses are expected to do more than generate profits – they must be a force for good. This means that the communication challenges for companies are also transforming. This is carried by the stakeholders, whose impact makes all the difference between success and failure. Companies can no longer simply deliver communications to their audiences – they must engage with empathy, be authentic and transparent.
“Our technology and platform allow us to deliver the latest and most accurate insights to businesses, and we believe this will be a real year of growth for alva as more businesses see the importance and value of this crucial information when it comes to improving and protecting their reputation.”
alva is now expanding its offerings. In July 2021, the company announced a new partnership with Ballast Research and Hamilton Place Strategies, which will deliver an integrated business intelligence platform and advisory services combining primary research, reputation results, advisory services and monitoring capabilities.
alva was also recognized by the Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards and the AI & Machine Learning Awards in 2021 for its technology.
