International Business Awards winner: Company, Innovator, & Executive of the Year
The Designated Editor team is proud to announce that it has won three globally competitive Stevie International Business Awards for 2014: Gold for Company of the Year – Internet / New Media, Silver for Innovator of the Year, and Silver for Executive of the Year – Internet / New Media.
The Stevie Awards are one of the highest honors in the business community, started in 2002 to “honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide,” according to its website.
Over 3,500 submissions were received by the International Business Awards this year from a wide variety of industries and from over 60 countries and territories. Entries came from for- and non-profits, from large and small businesses, and from public and private companies alike.
Judging for Stevie Awards go through two phases. In the first phase, entries are judged on a scale of 1 – 10 by five judges and those that score higher than an average of 7.0 move on to the final round of judging. Entries are then scored by another group of judges, and these scores determine who places Gold, Silver, or Bronze.
Designated Editor and its CEO Suzanne McDonald are honored to receive these particular awards as they reflect the hard work and innovation that has characterized this company since its inception. McDonald and her team work for their clients, to improve their businesses and lives, rather than for awards – but the Designated Editor team is still extremely proud to be recognized for exceptional achievements and success in the field.
The awards reception at the Westin Paris – Vendôme Hotel in Paris, France, was amazing on October 10.
