Monitronics International was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in the Inbound Marketing Program of the Year category in the sixth annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Feb. 27 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. More than 350 nominated customer service and sales executives from the United States and several other countries attended. The presentations were broadcast live by the Business TalkRadio Network.
More than 1,000 entries from organizations of all sizes and myriad industries were submitted to this year’s competition, an increase of almost 30 percent over 2011. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 93 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. Entries were considered in 27 categories for customer service professionals, 38 categories for sales professionals, and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers.
More than 100 members of seven specialized judging committees determined Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging this year.
“Monitronics’ Join Forces program was a creative approach to capture premium dealer leads for the Monitronics Dealer Program. We’re honored to receive such an award,” stated Bruce Mungiguerra, vice president of sales and dealer development at Monitronics.
