Lendio Honored as a Gold Stevie Award Winner in 2019 American Business Awards


Lendio’s Customer Service Team Recognized for Excellence in Customer Communication & Reviews

SILICON SLOPES, Utah – May 3, 2019 – Lendio was recently recognized in The 17th Annual American Business Awards as Customer Service Team of the Year – Financial Services. Lendio will be presented with a Gold Stevie Award on Tuesday, June 11 at a ceremony in New York City.

More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Lendio’s customer service team is recognized for scaling its program and as a result, dramatically expanding Lendio’s customer base. In order to reach this goal, the team focused on three key areas: increasing chats with customers, increasing call volume and improving customer service ratings. As a result, Lendio customer service increased chat volume by 1164% and earned nearly 800 positive customer reviews in 2018.

More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. According to the judges, Lendio’s customer service team demonstrated an “immediate ability to connect live with customers or prospective customers,” and Lendio’s efforts are “a great step towards building a customer service culture that will continue to benefit the organization.”

“This small team alone helped facilitate $10 million in small business loans in 2018—more than the company ever imagined possible from a previously non-revenue generating department,” said Brock Blake, CEO and founder of Lendio. “The Gold Stevie Award is a well-deserved honor for this hard-working group of professionals.”

“The nominations submitted to The 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding. They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
