BETHLEHEM, Pa., Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Weather Trends International's CEO Captain Bill Kirk has been named a silver Stevie® winner for Innovator of the Year in the 15th Annual International Business Awards.
The International Business Awards are the world's premier business awards program, and in 2018 received entries from 74 nations and territories and more than 3,900 nominations from organizations of all sizes. Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 270 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries.
"This year's Stevie Award winners in the IBAs are the most distinguished group of winners we've had yet," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "We raised the minimum average score from the judges required to qualify as a Stevie winner, so 2018 winners should be especially proud of their achievements.
"Our first reaction was, silver, who beat us, arm the phasers...and then we saw it was CISCO a $48 billion dollar firm...so we're ok with that," joked Captain Kirk. "This makes 15 business technology awards for the team here at wt360 that continues to make great progress in proactive vs reactive year-ahead business weather forecasting; technology now used by over a hundred Fortune 1000 companies in 191 countries," added Kirk.
