Setting the stage for the 2004 American Business Awards, organizers are seeking nominations for outstanding companies and individuals in the business intelligence, data mining and analytics space.

Hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” by the New York Post (September 22, 2002), The American Business Awards are the only national, independent business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” the awards, designed by the same company that makes the Oscar and Emmy, will be presented at a gala, nationally broadcast ceremony in New York City in April 2004.

Nomination forms for The Second Annual American Business Awards may be downloaded at The final deadline for nominations is January 23, 2004.

“We began the American Business Awards last year as a way to recognize the millions of Americans who accomplish innovative and exceptional things every day, but rarely get acclaim for it,” said Michael Gallagher, president of The Stevies Awards, which organizes the program. “In a very short time the Stevie has become one of the world’s most coveted awards, because companies see this as an excellent way to recognize their employees and to increase public recognition of their accomplishments.” The American Business Awards are overseen by the board of distinguished judges and advisors including business luminaries such as Donald Trump, chairman, president and CEO of The Trump Organization, Bruce Nelson, chairman and CEO of Office Depot and marketing gurus Don Peppers and Martha Rogers.
