Stanford Swimming alum Lisa Falzone hits #2 on Paste’s Most Powerful Women in Technology list

Former Stanford swimmer Lisa Falzone continues to gain recognition in the business world. Earlier this year we wrote about her inclusion on Forbes’ prestigious 30 under 30 list for influential people under 30 years old.

Falzone’s latest honor comes in Paste Magazine, which placed her at #2 on its list of the 10 Most Powerful Women in Technology Today. That spot ranks her higher than some high-rollers at some big-name companies like a VP of Twitter (#5), COO of Snapchat (#6) and the CEOs of Yahoo (#7) and YouTube (#8).

The 28-year-old Falzone is the CEO and co-founder of Revel Systems, the creator of a system that lets stores and restaurants use an iPad to run sales, collect signatures and run analytics on their business. The company has partnered with retail companies like Belkin and Goodwill, and lists Little Caesar’s Pizza and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory among its clients.

You can read the full Paste article here – Falzone even gives her Cardinal roots a shout out by noting how her years on the Stanford swim team helped her develop her incredible entrepreneurial drive.

Falzone swam three seasons for Stanford, scoring points at the Pac-10 championships in all three seasons and winning two conference titles as a member of the Cardinal swimming program in 2004 and 2005.
