The Corporate America Oscars
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”.
“We’re delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We congratulate all of the Stevie Award winners, and thank them for the inspiration their achievements have stimulated.”
“It’s incredibly rewarding to win this product development recognition from the business community as we strive to be best-in-class in everything we do,” said Michael Innes, President, VisionTek Products. “This honor will sharpen our focused commitment to providing high-performance technology solutions that deliver maximum user satisfaction.”
