KATT Communications Named Finalist For Startup Of The Year In 15th Annual Stevie® Awards For Women In Business

Stevie Award Winners to Be Announced in New York on November 16

[DEVENS, MA] – [October 4, 2018] – KATT Communications, a one-stop source for business telephone solutions, was named a Finalist in the Startup Of The Year category in the 15th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York on Friday, November 16.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year. KATT Communications is a Finalist in the Startup of the Year category.

Since January of 2018, when KATT Communications began operations, the all-female company--led by single mother of two and industry veteran Katherine Tracey--has made tremendous strides with its profit and, more importantly, its customer base. “Our family-first motto has been the cornerstone of all that we do,” Katherine commented.  As founder and CEO, she has also been consistently socially active, donating her time and portions of her proceeds to Clear Path for Veterans New England and We've Got Your Backpack, an organization that prepares foster families and their kids for back-to-school. “As a former foster child myself and the sibling of a veteran, these two particular initiatives really hit home for me.”

Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on five juries.  Their scores will also determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements that will be revealed at the 15th annual awards dinner and presentations in New York.

“In its fifteenth year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received a record number of nominations. With the new Women Future Conference preceding the announcement of winners on November 16, it will be a day to celebrate the achievements of working women around the world,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards.  “We’re looking forward to recognizing the Stevie Award winners next month.”

KATT Communications customers come from a wide spectrum of industries, ranging from transportation to medical and law offices. The women-led organization offers an incredible breadth of service with technicians in all 50 states, managing to provide national coverage with a local feel to achieve its goal of leveraging expertise to save clients time and money. “It had long been a dream of mine to start my own company, and to be recognized for this dream--especially by an organization that celebrates the achievements of working women around the world--is incredibly rewarding.”
