Exciting things have been happening at Vesta lately! We are thrilled to announce that Vesta and Veggie’s Made Great, a fast-growing frozen food brand that uses Vesta’s all-in-one technology to power their online brand community, have been recognized by the Stevie® Awards with a Gold Award for Community Engagement Campaign of the Year

The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards and the Community Engagement category recognizes campaigns that helped to engage or activate a community in some specific way. Using Vesta’s platform, Veggie’s Made Great has been able to efficiently and effectively personalize their relationships with their most passionate fans at scale, fostering deep connections and harnessing digital relationships into offline actions. 

“We are thrilled that the Stevie Awards has recognized Veggie’s Made Great for their dedication to engaging their community and building more meaningful and authentic relationships with their consumers,” said Susan Frech, CEO of Vesta. “It is so exciting to see how the Veggies Made Great team utilizes the power of Vesta’s platform to drive lasting loyalty and inspired brand advocacy.”

The Good News Doesn’t End There

Vesta’s own CEO, Susan Frech, took home an honor herself: the Bronze Stevie Award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year: Business Products (11 – 2,500 employees.) A winner of three previous Stevie Awards, Sue’s commitment to making modern marketing more innovative and purposeful continues to draw honors. 

Judges commended Sue’s ability to passionately lead Vesta through the pandemic and praised her entrepreneurial spirit that uses the pace of change to her advantage, leading through innovation and passionate energy to revolutionize brand marketing. 

About the Stevie Awards

For this year’s 18th annual Stevie Awards, over 1,500 nominations from 35 nations were reviewed with just about 39% of the nominations receiving high-enough average scores from the 160+ worldwide professional judges to place Gold, Silver or Bronze. 

Maggie Gallagher Miller, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “We thought the remarkable stories of achievement we saw in last year’s awards couldn’t be topped, but we were wrong.  Women-owned and -run organizations have contributed significantly to the increase in innovation and entrepreneurial activity we’ve seen globally since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The nominations submitted to the 18th Stevie Awards for Women in Business that attest to this are inspiring, humbling, and motivating.  We congratulate all of our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie winners.”
