The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’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.

More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – 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, Virtual Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. Zen Ecosystems was nominated in the Company of the Year category for Energy.

Zen Ecosystems is an intelligent energy management company providing simple, effective solutions to both commercial and residential customers. “I would like to personally congratulate all those who were nominated. We are honored to be awarded such a high distinction and will continue to make a positive impact on the environment and support sustainability goals,” said James McPhail, CEO of Zen Ecosystems.

One of the judges commented, “Zen Ecosystems is one of the top companies working towards efficient energy solutions. Especially their technology reduces the wear and tear on their units saving them on expensive maintenance bills and ultimately saving lots of energy. During pandemics, solutions like this will benefit many people by avoiding high energy costs.”

More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The American economy continues to show its resilience, and as we’re poised on the beginning of what should be a phenomenal period of growth, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of a wide range of organizations and people over the past 18 months,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations in The American Business Awards are testament to the ingenuity, the commitment, the passion, the adaptability, and the creativity of the American people. We look forward to celebrating this year’s winners during our virtual ceremony on June 30.”
