e-Cycle Named as Finalist in 2012 American Business AwardsSM

e-Cycle will be considered in the category of Business Services Company of the Year for the 10th Annual American Business Awards that recognize companies with Stevie® Awards.

e-Cycle, the world’s only mobile buyback and recycling company to earn the stringent and independent e-Stewards certification, is a Company of the Year finalist for the Stevie Awards presented by the American Business Awards (ABA). e-Cycle was selected in the area of Business Services.

Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of 10 specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging to take place May 14 – 25. In the category in which e-Cycle is a finalist, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be announced June 18 at the ABA gala in New York.

A record number of nominations were submitted this year with more than 3,000 from organizations of all sizes and from virtually every industry. The ABAs include a wide variety of categories including management awards, new product awards, marketing awards, public relations awards, human resources awards, information technology awards, web site awards, and more.

e-Cycle protects sensitive data of U.S. and international organizations while recycling their mobile devices to the highest standards of financial and environmental responsibility. Mobile asset recovery and reuse is a sound business practice because revenues greatly offset the cost of upgrading to latest mobile technologies.

“All of us associated with e-Cycle are proud to share the stage with so many prestigious businesses that are under consideration for this year’s Stevie Awards,” said e-Cycle Founder and CEO Christopher Irion. “This recognition is a reflection not only of the important work we are doing in the areas of mobile asset recovery and reuse, but also from an environmental standpoint because extending the life of wireless devices reduces energy and carbon emissions.
