Todd Crowder, Director of Customer Care with Vision Solutions in Indianapolis, Indiana will chair and form the final judging committee for the support awards categories in The 2011 American Business Awards. The support awards categories recognize achievements in all administrative support, production support, security, maintenance, research, etc. functions. Basically the people who rarely if ever get a pat on the back.
Last year Todd was Director of Worldwide Technical Support for Double-Take Software when they won the Stevie for Support Department of the Year in The 2010 ABAs. You can read their Stevie-winning nomination here. Since that time Double-Take Software was acquired by Vision Solutions.
More judging committee chairs will be announced soon.
Support awards categories include the following:Support Department of the Year
Support Team of the Year
Support Staffer of the Year (for all non-executive support personnel, including office managers, administrative assistants, secretaries, maintenance professionals, etc.).
FYI, Support Staffer of the Year is one of the few categories in the ABAs that doesn't require payment of an entry fee with a nomination.
