AnswerNet CEO Among Finalists for Executive of the Year
PRINCETON, NJ (Nov. 7, 2007)—Gary A. Pudles, president and CEO of the AnswerNet Network (www.answernet.com), was named a finalist for the NJBIZ 2007 Business of the Year Awards’ prestigious Executive of the Year honor. Pudles was one of six finalists nominated for the Executive of the Year award, which was awarded at a ceremony on Nov. 7. The award honors companies and their leaders who have had a constructive impact on the corporate landscape of New Jersey. Nominees were determined by a panel comprised of some of New Jersey’s most prominent business members and were judged on qualities like past accomplishments, community involvement, civic affiliations and managerial philosophy. Pudles, in particular, was recognized for his successful growth in the teleservices field as well as his contributions to the business community through speaking engagements, writing contributions and philanthropic services.
“No executive becomes a finalist for an award like this unless they are lucky enough to be on a team of real winners and talented performers,” said Pudles. “Everyday, I hop out of bed and look forward to being a part of the AnswerNet team—a team that delivers miracles each day, one phone call and one email at a time.”
Pudles has been previously honored by NJBIZ’s list of “40 Under 40” and was named as an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
“It never ceases to amaze me how we are able to do something so ordinary (making and taking phone calls and sending and receiving emails) and turn it into something so extraordinary,” added Pudles. “This happens not because of me, but because of everyone in the AnswerNet Network family. Their work, effort and caring make my job so much easier.”
