LAS VEGAS, June 21, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- ActionCOACH has taken its place alongside such household names as Apple, ConstantContact, Overstock.com, Whole Foods Market, Cisco and Groupon as winner of this year's Stevie for Best Overall Company in the Business Services category.
This is the third straight year ActionCOACH was honored as a finalist and the second time the company has won the award, having taken home the trophy in 2007 as well.
One of the longest tenured ActionCOACH Master Licensees in the United States, Don Schin, attended the Awards Dinner and accepted the award for ActionCOACH.
"Receiving this award on behalf of ActionCOACH is a great honor for me," Schin said, "This award has special meaning for me because I've been part of the ActionCOACH system for so long. I've seen incredible growth in more than a decade as an ActionCOACH and I know, with our great team, we will continue to grow and get better."
ActionCOACH is the world's leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, the concept of business coaching was still in its infancy. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become more mainstream turning it into the second fastest growing category behind Information Technology. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium sized businesses as well as executive teams and group coaching.
"Anytime you win an award it's an honor," ActionCOACH USA and Canada CEO Jodie Shaw said, "But winning Best Overall Company means our company is the best of the best, not just in our field or specialty, but as a business as a whole."
The Stevies, or American Business Awards, were created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and business people worldwide. Beginning with The American Business Awards in 2002, their mission is to raise the profile of exemplary organizations and individuals among the press, the business community and the general public.
