Last Thursday, we had the honor of attending the 2012 Greater Austin Business Awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Austin. What a fun evening! It was especially great to be surrounded by amazing business leaders and respected companies doing business in the Austin community. Some notable companies in attendance were 3M, AMD, Whaleshark Media and Luminex to name a few.
Each year, the Austin Chamber of Commerce hosts the Greater Austin Business Awards to honor excellence in business in the Greater Austin region. The annual awards dinner recognizes small, medium, large and non-profit companies, attracting over 300 businesses and over 1,000 community leaders. Businesses are recognized for their contributions in the areas of Community Relations, Customer Service, Environment, Health and Wellness, Innovative Practices, and Technology. This year we were honored to be nominated and selected as a finalist along with four other businesses (Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, Austin Gutterman Inc., HT Staffing, REGUS Executive Suites) for Customer Service in the small business group.
This was our first year to be nominated and we were so happy when we heard the emcee announce our name as the winner for Best Customer Service in the small business category. We consider it an acknowledgement and a nod from the Austin community for the diligent effort we’ve been devoting to the level of customer service we provide each and every guest that walks through our doors. Our purpose at Maximum FX is to Make Everyone’s Day. Winning this award has proven to us that if you apply yourself and stay focused on whatever you want to accomplish, people will notice. We are especially grateful to the Austin community for supporting us for over 20 years.
