Velocity Global Wins Gold and Silver Stevie® in 2018 International Business Awards®

Denver, CO – August 21, 2018 – Velocity Global, the leading provider of global employment services, announced it has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® and Silver Stevie® Award for “Best eBook” internationally and “Fastest-Growing Company in Canada and the U.S.,” respectively.

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2018 IBAs received entries from 74 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the InterContinental London Park Lane Hotel in London, England on October 20, 2018.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the prestigious International Business Awards for our eBook, The Ultimate Guide to Global Expansion, as well as the fastest-growing company in Canada and the U.S.,” said Ben Wright, CEO of Velocity Global. “We continuously strive to offer informative, easy-to-digest content to educate our audience on global expansion allowing them to make more informed decisions for their businesses; our now award-winning eBook is a testament to this goal. To be recognized on an international level is very exciting, and I am extremely proud of our team for their dedication to help companies expand globally.”

Velocity Global’s Gold Stevie award-winning Ultimate Guide to Global Expansion was created as an eBook to easily educate readers on the importance of expanding their businesses internationally, the different options and strategies, as well as potential solutions to simplify the process. It also introduces audiences to a new, streamlined approach to international expansion: International PEO. The panel of judges specifically commented on the well-written content, modern design, and eye-catching imagery used in the eBook.

As a winner of the Silver Stevie for Fastest-Growing Company in Canada and the U.S., the judges noted Velocity Global’s impressive growth statistics. In the last year, the company has opened seven international offices and added three new service line and/or divisions, including Global Mergers & Acquisitions, Global Talent Acquisition, and Global Immigration. Since 2017, Velocity Global has also increased revenue by 297%, grown the employee count by 254%, and was recently recognized on Inc. 5000’s 2018 list as the fourth fastest-growing private company in the U.S.

Stevie Award winners are determined by the average scores of more than 270 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries.

“This year’s Stevie Award winners in the IBAs are the most distinguished group of winners we’ve had yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We raised the minimum average score from the judges required to qualify as a Stevie winner, so 2018 winners should be especially proud of their achievements. We look forward to presenting their Stevie to them in London on October 20, and to telling their stories over the coming year through Stevie Awards media.”
