Exemplary companies honored with Frost & Sullivan's prestigious Awards during three consecutive evening ceremonies

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Nov. 13, 2013 — Frost & Sullivan celebrated companies from around the globe for their exemplary achievements within a multitude of industries and functional disciplines, September 9-11 in San Jose, California. The Awards ceremonies were held in conjunction with Frost & Sullivan’s four-day annual flagship Growth, Innovation & Leadership (GIL) 2013: Silicon Valley event.

Best Practices Awards recipients were honored at three consecutive black-tie galas, where they were recognized for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Festivities included a networking reception, formal dinner and ceremony, and live entertainment.

More than 200 individuals representing over 80 different companies attended the galas. Leaders from industries ranging from Information & Communication Technologies, Automotive to Healthcare participated. Each evening’s gala was preceded by a CEO Roundtable Discussion composed of top leaders from best-in-class companies. During the breakout sessions, chief executives shared and examined strategies for addressing the most challenging issues with the current economy and within the vast spectrum of industries.

Frost & Sullivan’s methodology identifies companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices.

The Best Practices Awards are presented each year to companies that are predicted to encourage significant growth in their industries, have identified emerging trends before they became the standard in the marketplace, and have created advanced technologies that will catalyze and transform industries in the near future.
