San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
The Edison Awards, celebrating 27 years of honoring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, announced today that ScanAvert was voted a bronze winner for innovation at the April 30th event at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. Ellen Badinelli joined hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most recognized companies to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all of the 2014 Edison Award winners.
Being recognized with an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.
“Our judges recognized ScanAvert as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.
The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards™ was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.
One of the evening’s many highlights was the presentation of the prestigious Edison Achievement Award to two very prominent innovators: Yang Yuanqing, the Chairman and CEO of Lenovo, and Elon Musk, the charismatic leader behind Tesla Motors and SpaceX. The award honors innovation leaders and business executives who have made a significant and lasting contribution to innovation throughout their careers. The Edison Achievement Award serves as inspiration to future innovators and to the world at large.
