Being named a Finalist in The American Business Awards is an important achievement

MonsterCommerce has certainly done its job keeping the buzz in Belleville, IL. The e-commerce hosting company has just achieved yet another impressive milestone with the announcement that they are a finalist for a 2006 Most Innovative Company Stevie® Award.

The Stevie® Awards are presented by the American Business Awards, which nationally recognizes outstanding businesses and individual performances in the workplace. MonsterCommerce was among the 1,500 entries that were received by companies both large and small for consideration in over 40 categories.

“Being named a Finalist in The American Business Awards is an important achievement,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. “It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of national recognition. We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition.”

The winners of “the business world’s own Oscars” will be announced at the annual gala on June 12 in New York City. The Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges and Advisors will determine the finalists that will receive a Stevie® Award.

Vice President of Online Services, Dan Kennedy, notes that the nomination is perfectly in line with the goals of the shopping cart software provider, “Since inception, MonsterCommerce has strived to be the most innovative company in the space we serve; small to medium-sized e-commerce businesses. It’s rewarding to be recognized by such a prestigious group as the Stevie® Awards.”

This is another impressive benchmark for the still young but quickly growing company. MonsterCommerce began in 1998 as a shopping cart solution for people starting online business ventures. The e-commerce hosting company has now grown to offer a full suite of services for clients starting online business websites, from Web Design to Web Promotions.

The organization has also been acquired by Network Solutions, based in Herndon, VA. This recent merger has enabled MonsterCommerce to more than double in size and offer more services for both e-commerce and non-commerce websites.

MonsterCommerce was voted one of St. Louis’ Top 50 Businesses, named 2006 2nd Fastest Growing Company in St. Louis, deemed Best Small Business E-Commerce Solution in Entrepreneur Magazine, and earned a Finalist Nomination for Best E-commerce Software Codie by SIIA. President and General Manager, Stephanie Leffler, was also a finalist for a Stevie® Award in 2005 for Best Young Entrepreneur.

These impressive milestones, along with their pioneering new products have earned MonsterCommerce the nomination as Most Innovative Company of 2006.
