American Solar Direct Honored as Bronze Stevie® Award Winner in 2014 American Business AwardsSM

Company of the Year and Fastest Growing Company Awards help solidify company as a leader in the energy sector

CHICAGO--()--American Solar Direct Inc. (ASD) was declared a Bronze Stevie® Award winner in two award categories at the 12th annual American Business “Stevie” Awards dinner at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago on Friday as Company of the Year in the energy sector and Fastest Growing Company with less than 2,500 employees.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the United States are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

American Solar Direct was selected for these awards through a multi-stage judging process performed by specialized judging committees comprised of business professionals from across the nation. Thousands of submissions were examined across all award categories during preliminary judging in April and May, resulting in a short list of finalists that competed for Stevie Award placements during a final round of judging toward the end of May.

Beth Spence, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing was present to accept the awards on behalf of American Solar Direct, thanking its growing team of employees - and with special thanks to ASD solar customers - for making this distinction possible: “We owe this award to our customers who have embraced our company, products, and our mission to bring clean, affordable power to more and more homeowners.”

“American Solar Direct is thrilled to be the recipient of not just one, but two prestigious national business awards,” said Brennan Mulcahy, Chief Executive Officer. “We attribute our continued strong growth and leadership within the industry to our dedication to customer service, our innovation and our commitment to making solar affordable and accessible for homeowners. American Solar Direct is successful because we continually deliver the products and services that customers seek and need.”

American Solar Direct is a popular choice because it offers customers a complete, turn-key set of services – from providing custom design, affordable lease options and dedicated account management, to management of permitting, maintenance and service, and having highly trained installers on staff. Heightened demand for American Solar Direct installations over the years prompted the company a few years ago to expand operations throughout California, with offices from San Diego to the Bay Area. The company achieved a record number of installations in 2013.

American Solar Direct recently earned the service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of service provided to members of the consumer review service in 2013. Considered a mark of consistently great customer service, this is the first year the company has been awarded by this esteemed organization.

The next American Business “Stevie” Awards program will take place on September 12 in San Francisco, recognizing leading businesses in new product & technology areas.
