Release: Janek Performance Group Honored Twice At 2016 Stevie Awards For Sales And Customer Service

LAS VEGAS, NV, March 9, 2016—Janek Performance Group was presented with a Silver Stevie® Award for Sales Training Practice of the Year and a Bronze Stevie® Award for Sales Consulting category in the tenth annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service on Friday night.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top sales awards, business development awards, contact center awards, and customer service awards. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious American Business Awards and International Business Awards.

The awards were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Friday, March 4 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. More than 500 executives from the U.S.A. and several other nations attended.

More than 2,100 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition, an increase of 11% over 2015. More than 60 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging earlier this month.

“We are humbled to have received not only one, but two Stevies this year,” said Justin Zappulla, managing partner of Janek Performance Group. “It’s very meaningful to us that the hard work and dedication of our team has been recognized by an independent organization, especially with the influx of award submissions the Stevie® Awards have received this year. It’s great to know that the work we do and the customer success stories we shared have resonated with the judges.”

“Entries to the Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service continue to grow every year, further validating the essential roles that business development, customer service, and sales play in business success,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie® Awards. “The widespread support of this program made the 2016 competition that much more intense among finalists. The judges were deeply impressed by the winner’s accomplishments and we congratulate all of the winners on their commitment to excellence and innovation.”
