According to the program's official website, Reddy's inclusion on the list of "movers and shakers who shape the way we live today" ranks her among Queen Elizabeth II, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and Victoria Beckham. A panel of female journalists, authors and a minister of parliament compiled the Power List.
"Thank you!! So incredibly surprised & honoured to be on #womenshourpowerlist," Reddy wrote on Twitter in response to a tweet congratulating her.
A South African native, Reddy moved to the U.K. at 18. She co-founded the Guildford, U.K.-based Media Molecule in 2006 after a stint at Criterion Games, the studio behind Burnout Paradise and, most recently, Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
