Yashi has been named a finalist for Company of the Year, and its CEO and Co-founder has also been named as a finalist for Executive of the Year in The 2014 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the program.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Friday, June 13 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 12 in San Francisco.
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. Yashi is nominated in the Company of the Year category for Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations.
“Online video advertising is growing rapidly and has been very disruptive to television," says Jay Gould, CEO and Co-founder of Yashi. “Yashi has been a beneficiary of this rapid growth, due to its exceptional team that has built world-class location focused video advertising technology for its customers. We are very thankful that the Stevie Awards has recognized Yashi as a leader within the online video advertising industry."
Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.
“The final judges have a difficult task ahead of them, to rank the Finalists, because there are so many great nominations this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher.
