NEW YORK – MobilityWire® – August 18, 2009
Alberto Montesi, founder and CEO of Flycell, Inc., a leading mobile and online entertainment content company, has earned a Certificate of Finalist Recognition for Executive of the Year in North America in the 2009 International Business AwardsSM, known as the Stevies. The International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business.
Nicknamed the Stevie® for the Greek word “crowned,” the awards will be presented to honorees at a gala dinner on Monday, September 14 in the St. Regis Hotel in New York City.
Organizations all over the world are eligible to compete in The International Business Awards. This year’s honorees were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 30 countries.
Montesi was recognized as a finalist for Executive of the Year for leading his international team at Flycell to create a digital entertainment service that is responsive to the consumer’s desires and needs, while staying at the forefront of technology innovations and trends in the space.
With Montesi’s guidance and expertise, Flycell has achieved profitability at a time when many companies in the digital entertainment sector are struggling to stay afloat. Despite the faltering economy, Flycell has experienced quarter over quarter growth, with revenue for the first half of 2009 nearly equal to revenues from all of 2008.
“Being named a finalist for a Stevie Award is an honor for me personally, but more importantly, is a testament to the continued success of Flycell,” Montesi said. “The Flycell team is focused on creating and delivering the cutting-edge mobile and digital entertainment customers are demanding. We have experienced exceptional growth, especially thus far in 2009. It’s undoubtedly been the collective effort of our entire company that I’m most proud of, and I applaud the whole Flycell global team for our success.”
Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs selected International Stevie winners from among the Finalists, which were determined by volunteer judges around the world during two months of preliminary judging.
“Despite the harsh economic climate, entries to the IBAs actually grew a bit this year, and that illustrates the increasing importance of The International Business Awards worldwide,” said Michael Gallagher, president of The Stevie Awards, presenters of the IBAs. “We congratulate all of the honorees, and we look forward to recognizing them for their achievements at our gala awards dinner in New York on September 14.”
