“Too few companies have the courage and the compassion required to address the education market...It Appears that LEAN Frog has shown the clever, entrepreneurial wit to bring real value where it is much needed."
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (PRWEB) May 09, 2016
The LEAN Frog team—affectionately referred to by clients as “Froggers” and noted for their work in transforming school systems through the facilitation of Lean Six Sigma continuous improvement practices which often result in the capture of much-needed funds—has been honored with two Stevie Awards by the American Business Awards℠ (ABA). The 14th Annual ABA Stevie Awards are the only national, all-encompassing business awards program in the United States and are acclaimed as the country’s premier business awards focused on recognizing and generating public awareness of achievements, positive contributions, and excellence in the workplace. More than 3,400 nominations were reviewed in the judging process this year, which was conducted by more than 250 professionals.
LEAN Frog Business Solutions, Inc. has been awarded a Silver Award for the “Most Innovative Company of the Year – Up to 100 Employees” AND Byron Headrick (President and Co-founder) has been recognized with a Silver Award in the “Maverick of the Year – Business Products or Services Industries” category. Both of these awards highlight LEAN Frog’s success in positively changing public education throughout the Southeast. As one of the ABA Judges remarked, “Too few companies have the courage and the compassion required to address the education market because it is not as lucrative as many others—you have to care enough to want to go there and be dedicated to providing real benefit, not just being another parasite on the beleaguered system. It appears that LEAN Frog has shown the clever, entrepreneurial wit to bring real value where it is much needed.”
Over 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. “The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries that we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
“We are indeed proud to be recipients of two Silver Stevie Awards,” said Sherri Headrick, LEAN Frog Co-Founder and the Director of Marketing and Personnel. “It has been a banner year for LEAN Frog with regard to growth and recognition. To receive these Stevie Awards on the heels of being selected as the Southeastern Regional Finalist for the U. S. Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year award is both humbling and exciting. We view these awards and others we have received as a testament to our company values and to our mission-helping public schools succeed through increasing the value they deliver to students, parents, and communities.”
