FOOTHILL RANCH, CA - 05 August, 2015 - Ytel has been named the gold winner in Fastest-Growing Company of the Year in Best in Biz Awards 2015 International, the only independent global business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
From 2012-2014, Ytel has continued to exceed all financial and business goals established by senior management. The company has surpassed every revenue goal since 2012 by increasing net revenue by over 50% year over year as a result of new partnerships, strategic product innovation and heavily investing in R&D. To meet the increasing market demand for communications solutions, Ytel has grown its workforce by over 30% each year (2012-2014).
"We are humbled by this award and excited to share this accomplishment with our team and customers," said Nick Newsom, Founder and CEO of Ytel. "We remain committed to executing on our strategic plan in developing and delivering top communications solutions to the market."
More than 250 public and private companies representing all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards' third annual International program. Best in Biz Awards 2015 International honors were once again presented in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Support Department of the Year, Enterprise Product of the Year, Best New Version of the Year and Best New Product of the Year.
Best in Biz Awards' uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panel. Only writers, journalists, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges each year. With this structure, Best in Biz Awards is able to leverage the experience and expertise of an influential group of global opinion makers to determine award winners.
"Having returned as a third time judge, I continue to be amazed with the innovation that companies are achieving. Each year, the competition has been fierce, and narrowing down the choices has been a challenge," said Sharon Bennett, Bennett Business Connections. "In the end, it comes down to the originality of the company and the problems they solve. I congratulate all the entrants for their willingness to share their achievements and I imagine they will all succeed in their sectors."
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2015 International were determined based on scoring from a panel of 26 judges drawn from top-tier news, business, finance, and technology publications and media outlets from 19 countries, with all continents represented. This year's judging panel included writers and contributors to such publications as ARD (Germany), Asian Power (Singapore), BBC Radio (United Kingdom), Bennett Business Connections (Canada), Business Breakfast (United Arab Emirates), Choice (Australia), Computer Hoy (Spain), CTV (Canada), Gamers Intuition (United States), IAA Magazine (United Arab Emirates), InBusiness (Cyprus and Greece), Irish Independent (Ireland), J Arnold & Associates (Canada), Jerusalem Post (Israel), Kaiser the Sage (Philippines) MediaPost (United States), Radio Ngati Porou (New Zealand), TechHim (India), The Engaging Brand (United Kingdom), Vancouver Sun (Canada), Ventures Africa and Enterprise54.com (Nigeria), Vyapar (India), Wirausaha & Keuangan (Indonesia), WirelessDuniya (India) and Xbox Plus (Brazil).
