PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QLess, an innovator in data-driven customer experience and business productivity solutions, has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the category of Consumer Services at the 16th Annual American Business Awards. The announcement pushes the company’s tally of ABA Gold Stevies to a total of seven awards, including six consecutive wins. The awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 11.
More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. In selecting QLess for the award, judges noted the company’s “impressive growth and results,” calling the company’s platform a “long-overdue innovation” that “solves a big everyday problem.”
“It’s an incredible honor to be selected again for this prestigious award,” said QLess co-founder and CEO Alex Bäcker. “This is an achievement not easily attained in the world of business or elsewhere. In film, you have Katharine Hepburn with four Academy Awards for Best Actress. In music, you have Quincy Jones who won Grammys three consecutive years. In sports, you have Michael Phelps who won gold in four consecutive Olympics. In business, receiving Gold Stevies with this regularity is an accomplishment of that scale, and I couldn’t be more proud of all our QLess liberators and their hard work and dedication in bringing our company to these new heights.”
“The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. Details about The American Business Awards and the list of 2018 Stevie winners are available at www.StevieAwards.com/ABA.
