Quincy, MA (May 8, 2014) – G-Force Shipping was named a finalist today in the categories of Customer Service Department of the Year and Fastest Growing Company of the Year in The 2014 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the program.
No stranger to recognition from the Stevie Awards in both categories, G-Force Shipping looks to continue its reputation for outstanding customer service operations and rapid company growth following its 2014 Silver Stevie® Award in the Customer Service Department of the Year - Airlines, Distribution & Transportation and its 2013 Stevie Award for “Fastest Growing Company of the Year.”
“2014 has been a milestone year for G-Force Shipping as we recently relocated to a brand new, 17,500 square foot location closer to downtown Boston to accommodate the amazing growth we have seen,” said G-Force Shipping CEO, Scott Guilbeault. “It is a great honor to receive these prestigious recognitions from the Stevie Awards in areas we take great pride in; providing an unmatched level of customer service and continuing to expand our employee roster to provide fulfilling career opportunities to the local workforce.”
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Friday, June 13 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 12 in San Francisco.
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others
In addition to multiple awards and recognitions from the Stevie’s in the company’s recent history, G-Force was named by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as one of the top 100 privately owned companies in the country and was also recognized as a 2014 Pacesetter by the Boston Business Journal as one of Massachusetts 70 fastest growing private companies and was recognized by the Boston Business Journal as providing one of state’s “Best Places to Work” for its outstanding employee-friendly company culture.
Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.
“The final judges have a difficult task ahead of them, to rank the Finalists, because there are so many great nominations this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher.
