As many of our customers will already know, I am currently nominated in the “Executive of the Year” category for the 2013 Digi Awards (by nextMedia).

The Digi Awards are an annual showcase of some of the great companies, products and people that are making a splash in the digital media space.

It has obviously been a very exciting year for Elite Email with lots of new developments… and still many more great things to come.

All of us here at Elite Email are honoured to be involved with the Digi Awards, especially in our category where we are in very great company with the other nominees. It’s just so fantastic to see so many great people pushing the envelope in the digital media space. While I would obviously like everyone to vote for me, at the same time I do encourage you to check out the bios for the other people in this category.

I want to thank everyone who received our emails, tweets and Facebook messages and already logged in their votes. I am completely blown away by the response so far and I truly cannot thank everyone enough.

Rest assured, each new vote, just motivates me even more to accomplish greater & grander things in the future to continue to propel Elite Email forward and give our amazing customers access to all the tools they need to achieve their marketing goals.


WOW, are we excited!

Last year at the Toronto Business Excellence Awards we won the “Under 30” award, which was a huge honor.

Since then the entire Elite Email team has been working hard to make things even better and better by building on our award-winning foundation.

So, it is amazing to be recognized as a nominee in the biggest category, “Entrepreneur of the Year”.

This is truly one of the biggest awards in one of the biggest economies in the world and we are absolutely elated to be a finalist.

I share in this exciting moment with not only our amazing team, but also all of our outstanding customers. It is our customers that are the driving force behind everything we do and we are completely fueled by their energy and passion for email marketing.

Here is the announcement that ran in The Globe And Mail newspaper:

Toronto Board of Trade Business Excellence Awards - Entrepreneur of the Year


WOW…. What an exciting night!

I had previously mentioned that Elite Email was a finalist nominee for the Business Excellence Awards in the Under 30 (years-old) category and at last night’s gala event they announced the winners in front of a packed crowd of 400+ people.

To me it felt just like the Oscar’s and the suspense nearly killed me.

They announced the nominees for the “Under 30″ category and played a video they taped of us discussing what our company did and what we thought contributed to our success. Then, came the big moment….

“The winner is…”, followed by opening the sealed envelope… “ELITE EMAIL”!

Our table jumped up out of our seats and cheered what was probably the loudest cheer of the whole night! … what can I say, we were very excited. :)

This really is a huge honor for the entire Elite Email team.

As our customers will attest, we work incredibly hard to create the best email marketing solution possible and offer the absolute best customer support, so winning an award like this and getting this kind of recognition just reaffirms once more than we are on the right track. And, just wait, because we’ve got so many things up our sleeve and in the works that are going to make things even better!

After they announced our name, I know I gave an acceptance speech, but I was so excited that I honestly cannot recall one word I said. I’ll have to watch the video later… I hope I was eloquent enough!

The sheer amount of people who came up to me last night, texted me, posted on my Facebook wall, called me and sent me emails was through the roof. My phone literally hasn’t stopped vibrating and I am so appreciative of all the amazing people who support Elite Email and what we do.

While we’re still waiting on the photos from the official event photographer, here are some pictures from last night.
