mBlox CEO Named a Finalist in 2014 American Business AwardsSM

SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

mBlox CEO Tom Cotney was named a Finalist today for the 2014 American Business Awards Maverick of the Year category. The winner will be announced June 13 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park Hotel.

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations - public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Cotney was selected based on three business decisions he made since he was named mBlox's (News - Alert) CEO in December 2012. Cotney sold mBlox's Premium Short Messaging Services (PSMS) business, focused operations on the company's core strength - A2P text messaging - and helped define a new industry: mobile care. By divesting dead-end services, refocusing mBlox's brand and paving the way for a new platform, Cotney redefined the company and positioned it for success.

"mBlox's leadership team identified opportunities to focus it operations and drive innovation in strategic markets for mBlox," said Cotney. "This recognition is a reflection of our entire team's ability to execute a focused business strategy."

More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.
