VDS COMES UP BIG IN THE STEVIE AWARDS
Phoenix, AZ – January 28, 2020 – The Local SEO team for V Digital Services has been named a finalist in the fourteenth annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service, meaning they’ll ultimately be gold, silver or bronze winners in the contest. The nine-member Local SEO team, an integral part of one of America’s fastest growing digital marketing agencies, will be among dozens of finalists from the U.S. and other countries honored at a gala banquet Friday, February 28 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The Stevie Awards® organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows, including the prestigious International Business Awards® and the Stevie Awards® for Great Employers. Created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition for the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide, the Stevie® Awards are widely considered the world’s premier business awards.
“Being nominated as a finalist for a Stevie Award is a direct result of the dedication and hard work from our Local SEO team,” said VDS vice president for agency and client services Taylor West.
“They set the bar high not only for themselves, but they make us better as an agency by driving impactful results to our SMB clientele. I’m very proud to be part of such an amazing team.” More than 2,600 nominations from companies across a broad range of industries in 48 nations were evaluated in this year’s Stevie competition. Finalists were determined by averaging scores from seven specialized judging committees, and entries were considered in categories ranging from sales training to customer service and business development. Past Stevie Award winners include Apple, BASF, Ford Motor Company, Procter & Gamble and Samsung. “Every finalist nominee should be proud of the work they did over the past 18 months to be recognized by the judges,” said Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards. “They should also be proud of how well they effectively communicated those achievements to the judges.”
