RICHMOND, VA, MAY 12, 2015 — Allianz Global Assistance USA, a leading provider of travel insurance and travel assistance, has been named a Finalist in the categories of Customer Service Department of the Year and Customer Service Team of the Year in the American Business Awards® and will ultimately be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze award in each category.
The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Monday, June 22 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 11 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 Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and Human Resources Department of the Year, among others.
“We’re extremely proud to be named a finalist in two separate customer service categories by the judges at the prestigious American Business Awards,” said Mark Henson, VP of Travel Customer Service at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “These nominations are one more indication that our customer service teams are among the best in our industry.”
Finalists were chosen by scores of business professionals nationwide during first-round judging in April and May. Members of several specialized judging committees will determine final awards placements from among the finalists during final judging, to take place later this month.
“So many fascinating and inspiring stories of success were submitted to the ABAs this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher. “We congratulate all of our 2015 Finalists on their achievements.”
