Lisa Gladysz, 2024 Women in Business Honoree

Lisa Gladysz is the president and CEO of Accu-Time Systems Inc. in Windsor, a provider of time and attendance hardware and software for workforce management across multiple industries.

She was appointed president and CEO on April 1, 2020, after serving the company in various financial leadership roles. Accu-Time Systems is part of Amano Corp., a global Japanese company serving multiple market segments in time and attendance, parking and cleaning systems.

At the time of her appointment as president and CEO, Gladysz was the first woman to lead any of Amano Corp.’s many subsidiaries.

What have been your biggest professional accomplishments?

My biggest accomplishment has been successfully leading the company through the last four years. As a newly-minted CEO on April 1, 2020, not only did I have to navigate a complete pivot in how we operated, but we also moved the entire company from Ellington to Windsor in July of that year.

As CEO, I’ve overseen both employee and revenue growth. In 2023, we breached the 100-employee mark and grew revenue by 17%, setting revenue and profit records for the company’s 33-year history.

What’s the next big goal you want to accomplish professionally?

Professionally, I’m very happy where I am. I love my job, the company, and our employees. I want to continue as CEO and harness all of the talent, energy and enthusiasm of our employees to grow the company two-fold by expanding our products and services into adjacent markets.

What’s one of the biggest professional challenges you’ve overcome?

I’m shy by nature and suffered from a lack of confidence early in my career. Advocating for myself was not one of my strengths. Even today, my voice is still one of the quietest in the room.

I listen more, absorb the information, and strategically insert my ideas. I also had the good fortune to work for people who offered support and encouragement, which helped me build confidence.

How are you involved in the community?

When my kids were younger, I was a Girl Scout and Cub Scout leader, and active in the school PTA, holding officer positions in each organization. Currently, I am on the board of trustees of the Somers Public Library, serving as its secretary since 2018.

What legacy do you want to leave after your career is over?

I am a people person with a strong moral compass. I genuinely care about the well-being of my employees and colleagues, which influences how I lead.

I want to be remembered for my integrity and character, and how those qualities drove our business success.
