The Boon Group, Inc. Honored as Bronze Stevie® Award Winner in 2014 American Business Awards

Austin, TX – September 22, 2014 – The Boon Group, Inc. was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Insurance category in The 12th Annual American Business Awards on Friday, September 12.

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.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, September 12 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. More than 250 nominees and their guests attended for the presentation of new product awards, website awards, app awards and more.

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.  The Boon Group was nominated in the Insurance category for their website, 

The Boon Group launched its rebranded website on March 1, 2013, under the direction of Marisol Valdez, Director of Marketing. At the core of the rebrand was a complete overhaul of the company logo. The new logo is a clean, modern word mark that symbolizes Boon’s ability to quickly grasp clients’ complex issues and “connect the dots” in creating solutions. The website, which had not been updated in several years, now provides a clearer picture of The Boon Group today, as well as the services offered. It delivers a crisp, streamlined, user-friendly experience to reflect Boon’s vision of staying at the forefront of the fringe benefits market and promote their standing as an industry leader.

“Everyone at The Boon Group is very excited for Marisol, the marketing department and all those who participated under Marisol’s leadership,” said James Patton, President and COO of The Boon Group. “Making sure the public knows who we are, where we are going and how we intend to get there takes persistence and a desire to lead. Our marketing team does a great job delivering this message that embodies our focus as a company. Congratulations!”

“We’re delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements and technology executives this year,” said Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards. “We congratulate all of the Stevie Award winners, and thank them for the inspiration their achievements have stimulated.”
