TAMPA, Fla. (CitizenWire) — Telovations, a leader in innovative business communications solutions, today announced that they are a winning recipient of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce’s Outstanding Business of the Year award. This year’s award was presented to Telovations on June 30th, 2010 at the Chamber’s annual awards gala that included more than 200 supporters of local businesses and non-profits that was in attendance. This prestigious acknowledgement was awarded based on staying power, innovativeness, response to adversity, and contributions to aid the local community.
Telovations has seen an explosion in the level of recognition and exposure in the local business community as a result of several large client additions and being named to the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 list.
“This award means a lot to the Company,” said Doug Knight, Chief Operating Officer and one of the original core team members that have been with the company since inception. “It gives our entire team a major sense of accomplishment, moving from startup mode all the way to one of the fastest growing companies in the area. It feels great to receive the level of recognition locally that we have been enjoying nationally for the last 2 years.”
Telovations opened its doors in 2006 and has grown revenues over 2000% since its first year of operations. The Company provides Hosted PBX phone service over a private network to hundreds of businesses throughout the United States.
When asked what attributed to the current success of the Company, Mr. Knight replied, “There is no doubt in my mind that success has a lot to do with our team. We have the best of the best in this industry working right here. We encourage career development throughout the entire company which has given our employees experiences that will allow them to continue to grow as we scale our business. The core team has spent countless days, nights and weekends getting this company off the ground which has moved Telovations in to a nationally recognized thought leader in the industry.”
The award is another milestone for Telovations which plans to use the recognition as a stepping stone towards builder stronger relationships within the local businesses community.
