Aperion Management Group was named the winner of a Gold Level Award in the Company of the Year — Consumer Services category in the 17th Annual American Business Awards. The American Business Awards are a premier business awards program, honoring various businesses nationwide.
More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year and Best New Product or Service of the Year, among others. Aperion Management Group was nominated in the Consumer Services category for Company of the Year.
“We are proud of what we’ve built,” said Katie Anderson, Aperion Management Group founder and CEO. “Community management is tough industry all around and it feels so great for our small company and incredible team to be recognized on a national level.”
More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s award winners over two months of judging in March-April.
“Community management is often a daunting task as expectations aren’t like enterprise but need more of the relationship building factor and treating people as people, not just a customer. Aperion Management has cracked the code of how to do it, with the right ethics and culture,” said one judge.
“Aperion is fab[ulous]and your growth story is commendable,” said another judge.
This year about 32 percent of the more than 3,800 nominations considered became Stevie winners and all entries that receive an average score of at least 7.25 out of ten in judging become Stevie winners, regardless of category. The number of winners in a category is a general reflection of the number of entries in a category but the number of entries per category is not published.
“The nominations submitted to the 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding. They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
