Stephen Gill tipped for another Stevie award

Stevie-awardUK: Stephen Gill Associates has again been listed amongst the finalists of the international Stevie Awards for sales and customer service.

The Derbyshire-based refrigeration consultancy is up against seven other companies from around the world in a Business Development Achievement of the Year category.

Last year the company took the gold medal in the Customer Service of the Year category of the Stevie Awards. He followed this up with a Silver in the Asia-Pacific Stevie’s two months later.

Finalists were determined by the average scores of 139 professionals worldwide during two months of first-round judging.  All Finalists will ultimately be named Gold, Silver or Bronze Stevie Award winners.  Award placements will be determined in final judging, and announced at the gala banquet at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, February 27.

The Stevie Awards were created in 2002 and could claim to be the largest worldwide business awards programme. They are designed to honour and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organisations and working professionals worldwide.

There are six Stevie award programmes with country specific awards in the US, Germany and Asia-Pacific in addition to the international events.

Proprietor Steve Gill finds himself up against seven other heavyweight competitors in the final from a diverse range of industries.
