Like The Oscars for Corporate America
The American Business Award program, created in 2002 and nicknamed “The Stevies”, is the only business awards program in the United States that honors and generates public recognition of corporate and executive achievements worldwide. The Stevie Award trophy is often called “the business Oscar”, because it is hand-cast and finished in 24-karat gold by the same company that creates the Oscar. The name “Stevie” is taken from the name Stephen, derived from Greek term for “crowned”. Past American Business Award winners have include Apple, Oracle, Hilton Hotels, and AT&T.
People’s Choice Award Voting Open In July
Each American Business Award finalist is also eligible to receive a special People’s Choice Award, which consumers can vote for online. Voting will open to the general public in July, and the winners will be honored at the ABA award ceremony.
“We’re ecstatic that the NuGuard KX is a Stevies finalist and that the judges have recognized the innovation behind its protective capabilities and one-piece design that doesn’t add bulk,” said Grant Dahlke, Brand Manager, Newer Technology, Inc. “After the Newer Technology Power2U ‘People’s Choice Award’ victory at 2012 American Business Award Ceremony, this nomination further stokes our passionate commitment to providing the best tech solutions available.”
