The American Business Awards, the nation's premier business awards, recognize companies and executives in virtually every industry nationwide for excellence in more than 40 categories.
As Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Class Action Administration Division of A.B. Data, Ltd., Ms. Verkhovskaya has led A.B. Data to become one of the fastest-growing class action administration companies in the country. Counted among the hundreds of class action cases A.B. Data has administered are four of the largest securities class action settlements in history. Under Ms. Verkhovskaya's direction, A.B. Data has raised the bar on quality and level of service for the class action administration industry as a whole.
"We are extremely proud of Ms. Verkhovskaya for having received this significant recognition," said Jerry Benjamin, A.B. Data's Co-Managing Director. "A.B. Data's excellence and growth in the class action administration industry are due in no small part to Ms. Verkhovskaya's hard work and dedication, so this national recognition is well-deserved. We wish her the best of luck at the awards."
Ms. Verkhovskaya will receive a Certificate of Finalist Recognition and, if chosen the winner, a prestigious Stevie Award at the annual gala on Monday, June 22, 2009, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Six hundred executives from across the country are expected to attend, and the ceremony will also be broadcast nationwide on the radio by the Business TalkRadio Network.
Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners from among Finalists in final judging that will continue until June 3, 2009. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April through early May.
"Despite very tough economic conditions, many organizations and individuals continue to perform well,' said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. "The results of the 2009 ABAs thus far are a testament to the resilience, creativity, and hard work of American organizations, executives, and workers."
