Earlier today, my team was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award at the 21st Annual American Business Awards.

The team won “Technology Department of the Year”, which is a phenomenal achievement, recognising an incredible few years.

The Stevie Awards honour and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of businesses and working professionals worldwide. The video below provides additional context.

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration. The winners were determined by the average scores of more than 240 professionals worldwide in the three-month judging process.

A few comments from the judges.

“Splits and mergers are never easy and sometimes organizations can get overwhelmed by the complexity and get into a downward productivity spiral. The fact that this department not only came up with a very comprehensive plan but also executed it, is a sign of a very well-functioning team. The team should be very proud of what they have accomplished.”

“The team’s efforts to rebuild the IT infrastructure and integrate the people, processes, and systems from both companies into a single unified platform are impressive.”

Congratulations to the team and all winners!
