Therese Tucker, CEO of software provider BlackLine Systems, was honored at the 2014 FSTech Awards in London Thursday with the Barry Holland Memorial Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement.

The award recognized the Los Angeles-based company founder for her accomplishments in building BlackLine as an enterprise-class financial software provider.
