BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BDMT (Business Development and Marketing Transformation) Global announced today that Managing Partner, Suzy Im, has been named a Silver Stevie® Award winner for Female Executive of the Year. Suzy and her team developed digital efforts as a means to grow businesses, both in the US and globally, in the face of the pandemic through hosting innovative live commerce events for companies striving to meet customer needs and secure business opportunities with B2B buyers around the world. Other notable winners for the Stevie® Awards this year included female executives from Amazon Web Services, LinkedIn Corp, JPMorgan Chase & Co, Salesforce, AT&T, Cisco, and IBM.
