New Way® Air Bearings Named As American Business Award ‘Stevie’ Finalist for the Second Straight Year, This Time for the Organization’s House Publication
Aston, Pennsylvania, USA, June 4, 2009 – New Way® Air Bearings has been announced as a finalist for a ‘Stevie’ in The Seventh Annual American Business Awards. The Aston, Pennsylvania-based company is being considered for its in-house newsletter, the New Way News: Inside Edition.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit entries to the ABAs – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. This year over 2,600 entries were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including the ‘Best House Publication’ category in which New Way is competing.
Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 22, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Six-hundred executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network.
“The American Business Awards are the Oscars of the business world,” noted Nick Hackett, New Way Air Bearings President and CEO. “As a small manufacturing company, we’re proud to be included as a finalist for the second straight year, this time with global brands including Blue Cross & Blue Shield, KPMG and Daimler Financial Services, among others. It exemplifies the ongoing elevation of our own brand.”
Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April through early May. Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs have now selected Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists in judging that continued through June 3. Winners will be revealed in New York on June 22.
Nicknamed ‘Stevie’ for the Greek word “crowned,” the coveted award was designed by the same company that makes the Emmy and other major awards.
“Despite very tough economic conditions, many organizations and individuals continue to perform well,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. “The results of the 2009 ABAs thus far are a tribute to the resilience, creativity, and hard work of American organizations, executives, and workers.”
“This is truly a testament to our Human Resources Department,” said Michael Wright, New Way Director of Marketing. “The Inside Edition of the New Way News is their publication. They were able to energize virtually everyone at New Way to contribute to the content. Then Schmidt Advertising and Design took that content and helped us raise the bar even further.”
“It’s all about communication,” Wright concluded. “And that starts inside the organization. When our people understand their value to the New Way brand, they, in turn, add that value to the New Way brand.”
