AOL Autos Tech of the Year: Tesla Supercharger

We're excited to announce that the Tesla Supercharger was awarded 2013 Technology of the Year from AOL Autos at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

This year marks the second annual Technology of the Year program, with over 44 technologies nominated for the title. Back in November, AOL Autos announced six finalists during the Los Angeles Auto Show where the Tesla Supercharger was joined by Chevrolet MyLink Valet Mode, Infiniti Backup Collision Intervention, Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive, Mopar® In-Vehicle Wireless Charging for Portable Devices and Volvo Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake at an offsite event at LA's Belasco Theater.

The panel of judges, comprised of industry experts from AOL Autos, Autoblog, Engadget and TechCrunch, went through grueling rounds of physical testing and found that the Tesla Supercharger raised the bar the highest when it comes to integrating technology into the world of autos. Giving Tesla owners the ability to charge their vehicles enough to drive 150 miles in about 30 minutes or less for free, the Tesla Supercharger changes the ways EVs are used and diminishes the concern of "range anxiety" among drivers. The infrastructure Tesla is building to support the Tesla Supercharger with fast-charging stations across the U.S. elevates EVs in the automotive industry today.

To help the esteemed board of judges find the best of the best in automotive technology, AOL Autos turned to their consumers in the last stage of deliberation. Readers were asked to vote for which among the six finalists they felt should take the title. With over 14,000 votes received, consumers also agreed that the Tesla Supercharger stood apart from its competitors, garnering 40% of overall public votes. The result of this poll equaled one judges' vote in final deliberation.

Congratulations to Tesla Supercharger on winning 2013 Technology of the Year!

AOLer Wins Global Emerging Leader Award

AOL prides itself on its pipeline of leadership talent – such as our audience development manager, Ainul Huda. We're thrilled to announce that he was recently honored with the Global Emerging Leader Award from Asian MBA International, the largest group of Asian professionals and MBA students in the U.S.
The award recognizes top-level, high-caliber Pan-Asian executives who are a source of inspirational leadership, strong role models for Pan-Asian youth, and possess impressive knowledge, expertise and creativity in their trailblazing efforts to cultivate positive change and support for organizational and community advancement efforts.

In his role on the Audience Development team, Ainul heads the central paid acquisition team, which generates revenue and traffic for AOL properties through investments in external partnerships. In a previous role at AOL, he provided investment and optimization guidance for various organic and paid initiatives to help grow and retain users.

Ainul received the award during the organization's Annual Leadership Conference, which connects business students and professionals with multi-national corporations and government agencies for advancement of their careers.

The conference -- which saw an attendance of over 3,000 people -- focused on U.S. companies' growing international revenue streams and the evolution of workforce diversity from "nice to have" to "must have" in order to compete in the global marketplace.
We're proud to have talented individuals who are smart and love what they do. Congrats, Ainul!
