GN Hearing—the medical device division of the GN Group, a developer of intelligent audio solutions—announced that it earned six Stevie Awards (five Gold and one Bronze) for its North America ReSound business teams in the 12th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service competition.

ReSound teams were recognized as the Gold winner in the following categories:

  • National Sales Executive of the Year – Mikkel Knudsen, vice president, sales
  • Government Sales Team of the Year – John Pettus, vice president, government services
  • Business Development Executive of the Year – Keith Lewis, vice president, business development
  • Sales Training or Education Leader of the Year – Sarah Klett, director of training
  • Sales Support Team of the Year – Sales and Training Teams

The Company’s Bronze Stevie Award was earned in the National Sales Team of the Year category.

“These awards are a testament to our dedicated employees, whose tireless efforts help support hearing care professionals and their patients who benefit every day from our smart hearing aids,” said Kim Lody, president of GN Hearing North America, who in 2016, named Tom Woods as president of the ReSound North America business to oversee a comprehensive growth strategy.

“Under Tom’s leadership, we have expanded and strengthened our organization through various sales, training, product, government-related, and customer service initiatives in order to bring our state-of-art hearing instruments to more people, helping address hearing loss in this country. These efforts are paying off, and we are honored that the award judges took note.”

More than 2,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 150 professionals worldwide in seven specialized judging committees. Entries were considered across 89 categories for customer service and contact center achievements; 60 categories for sales and business development achievements; and several other categories recognizing new products and services as well as solution providers.
