(NASDAQ: NTRI), a leading provider of weight loss management products and services including Nutrisystem® and South Beach Diet® brands, was named the winner of a Stevie® Award in the Customer Service Department of the Year category for the second consecutive year in the 15th Annual American Business Awards.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations — public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Tuesday, June 20.

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. Nutrisystem was nominated in the Customer Service category for Health Products and Services.

“We are so proud of our Customer Service team for receiving this award for the second consecutive year,” said Dawn Zier, CEO of Nutrisystem, Inc. “We’re in the business of transforming lives and our Contact Center is at the heart of our business, allowing us to understand consumer needs real-time and positively impact the overall customer experience.”

“We consistently strive to meet our customers wherever they are on their weight loss journey; help them see through their goals; and forge a meaningful relationship along the way,” said Bill MacBride, SVP of Contact Center Operations at Nutrisystem. “It’s always rewarding to receive customer compliments and industry accolades, but our most important work is continuing to assist our customers in reaching their weight loss goals and maintaining long-term health and wellness.”

More than 190 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before. The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

Judges specifically commenting on Nutrisystem’s award submission relayed the following feedback:
