Honored as Stevie® Award Winner in 2012 American Business Awards

Washington, DC– June 19, 2012 –

Leading Authorities, Inc. was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Best Corporate Image Event category in The 10th Annual American Business Awards last night. “We are thrilled to be honored with this award and the recognition of the high-quality events we produce on behalf of our speakers and clients every year,” said Mark French, president of Leading Authorities.

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.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Monday, June 18 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. More than 500 nominees and their guests attended. The presentations were broadcast live by the Business TalkRadio Network.

More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Leading Authorities was honored for its work on the Conversations with Power Series which hosts panels of prominent figures in business, politics, and the government who are moderated by notable media figures. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process this year.

“We’re delighted that the first of our two American Business Awards banquets honored so many deserving organizations and executives,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “It’s gratifying and inspiring to have received so many remarkable entries for this year’s competition.”
