DENVER, CO, February 25, 2019 – Spinnaker Support, a leading global provider of Oracle and SAP third-party support, today announced they were presented with two international Stevie Awards at the 13th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service ceremony in Las Vegas on February 22, 2019. The Stevie Awards are considered the world’s premier business awards, and each year they recognize the top customer service individuals, teams, and departments.

Spinnaker Support received the gold Stevie award for Customer Service Leader of the Year and a silver Stevie for Customer Service Department of the Year. More than 2,700 nominations from organizations in 45 nations of all sizes 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.

“Winning these prestigious awards demonstrates tremendous accomplishment by everyone in our company, especially the operations teams,” stated Matt Stava, CEO at Spinnaker Support. “We provide terrific customer service, and it is great to be internationally recognized.”

“All of the Stevie Award winners should be very proud of their achievements. Independent professionals around the world have agreed that their accomplishments are worthy of public recognition,” said Stevie Awards President and founder, Michael Gallagher.

Devan Brua, Vice President of Compliance and Risk at Spinnaker Support was honored as the top customer service leader of the year. Besides providing customized global tax and regulatory updates for customers in many countries, Ms. Brua oversees the company’s ISO certification programs, and she leads corporate legal/risk management efforts. Through excellence in these critical areas, she has helped Spinnaker Support become a leading customer service model in the industry.

“Winning this award is an honor for me, but I have to recognize Spinnaker Support and the entire team for their diligence in taking compliance and risk mitigation very seriously,” stated Devan Brua. “Our compliance focus protects the intellectual property rights of the big ERP software vendors. Customers greatly benefit because they are not exposed to the legal risk that derails service focus and sidetracks customer business focus. I take pride in the fact that, unlike other vendors in the space, Spinnaker Support has never faced litigation or legal judgments by any of the enterprise software publishers.”
