“From our perspective, this was the most successful Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Not just because of the increase in the number and variety of entries, but in the extraordinary quality of the entries. Judges have told me how impressed they were with the success stories they reviewed this year. All of this year’s Stevie Award winners are truly deserving.”
The name Stevie is taken from the name Stephen, which is derived from the Greek for “crowned. ” More than 1,100 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to this year’s competition — an increase of 10% over 2012. More than 140 members of eight specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements during final judging.
