Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, September 12, at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. More than 250 nominees and their guests attended for the presentation of new product awards, website awards, app awards and more.
The wins last week bring PGi’s 2014 Stevie Award tally to five. Earlier this year, PGi’s APAC team won silver and bronze for “Technology Executive of the Year” and “Management Team of the Year,” while PGi SVP Alison Sheehan won silver for “Human Resources Executive of the Year.”
