Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the InterContinental London Park Lane Hotel in London, England on October 20. Nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.

In addition to Globalization Partners’ remarkable growth rate—the company increased revenue of 50% year over year and in 2018 achieved a new client sales growth rate of 50% in the first two quarters—Sahin has led her company to gain local and international recognition, including being ranked No. 3 on the Women Presidents’ Organizations’ list of 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies and No. 2 on the Boston Business Journal’s ‘Fast 50’ List for 2018.
