CHICAGO, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP Fieldglass, the global cloud technology leader in services procurement and external workforce management, today announced that President Rob Brimm is a Bronze winner of a Stevie® Award in the Maverick of the Year category in the 14th Annual American Business Awards (ABA).
The American Business Awards are open to all organizations operating in the U.S. – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The ABA received more than 3,400 entries for a wide range of categories. The Maverick of the Year award honors executives for the creativity and ingenuity they use to drive growth in their organizations.
"This award validates the 'maverick approach' SAP Fieldglass takes as a team," Brimm said. "Our whole organization – from sales to product to services – dedicates itself to providing the most innovative technology for services procurement and external workforce management in the business. We are proud of what we've built here and we're looking forward to a very bright future."
Brimm joined SAP Fieldglass in 2004 to oversee and grow the sales organization, and has been a key stakeholder in the company's growth during his tenure. Promoted to company president in 2015, Brimm helped drive SAP Fieldglass from a promising tech start-up to a global, leading Vendor Management System (VMS) provider. In his time with the company, SAP Fieldglass' customer base has grown six-fold and the use of its technology solution has expanded to more than 120 countries.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning "crowned," the American Business Awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 20. Tickets are now on sale.
"The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
