Basement Systems, Inc., has had a busy spring season full of awards and honors. Company founder and president Lawrence Janesky now has another distinction to add to his credentials. Janesky was recently selected to be a finalist for Executive of the Year in the 2011 American Business Awards.

The American Business Awards (also known as the Stevie® Awards) were created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and businesspeople worldwide. Janesky is one of five finalists for Executive of the Year in the category for companies with between 100 and 2,500 employees. This year’s Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 20, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than six hundred executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The event will benefit Camfed (, which fights poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa by educating girls and empowering women to become leaders of change. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network.

Basement Systems was also recently honored by the Valley United Way with a number of awards for the company’s outstanding service and support to the Greater Valley community. At the United Way’s awards dinner last month, Basement Systems received the Campaign Underwriter award for Outstanding Community Support, the Top Dollars Raised 2010-2011 award, the Gold Corporate Giving award, the Silver Employee Giving award, and the Silver Employee Participation award. Janesky was also honored at the event with the CEO Leadership award for Philanthropic Leadership and Support.

Janesky’s book, The Highest Calling, was awarded by the Indie Excellence Book Awards for best business/motivational book. His other book, Saving Energy and Money at Home, was runner up in the Green Book Festival.

“All of these awards show just how committed Basement Systems is to being the best,” Janesky said. “It makes me proud to see organizations honoring the hard work and dedication of my team.”

These recent honors follow the heels of Basement Systems being selected for induction into the Connecticut Business Hall of Fame, an organization honoring companies that have demonstrated an exceptional role as a business entity in the state. That induction ceremony took place on May 20 at the Connecticut Laborers' Offices in Hartford. Senator Richard Blumenthal and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman were speakers.
