ATLANTA, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi (NYSE: PGI), a global leader in virtual meetings for 20 years, today announced that it has received two additional Stevie® Awards: PGi was recognized as the Silver Stevie Award winner for " Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year," and David Guthrie, PGi EVP and Chief Technology Officer, was honored with the Silver Stevie Award for " Product Development/ Management Executive of the Year."

PGi was recognized for the progress it has made in evolving beyond its roots as a communications services company toward becoming a leading software as a service company. The 2011 launch of PGi's iMeet® and GlobalMeet® cloud-based virtual meetings products, spearheaded by Mr. Guthrie's technical expertise, brought simple, human and mobile online meeting experiences to business users worldwide. iMeet is PGi's  virtual office solution for best-in-class video, web and audio meetings, allowing up to 15 people to easily collaborate face-to-face online. GlobalMeet is PGi's easy-to-use and reliable integrated audio and web conferencing solution for up to 125 participants, with no downloads required.

"2011 was an exciting year of growth and innovation for PGi, and we're thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition," said Mr. Guthrie. "PGi is committed to helping businesses meet and collaborate in more enjoyable and productive ways – a mission we continually advance through our user-centric development approach for our two latest virtual meeting products, iMeet and GlobalMeet."

"We're delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives in the ABA's new product and tech awards categories," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.  "It's gratifying and inspiring to have received so many remarkable entries for this year's competition.  We look forward to staging this event in San Francisco for years to come."

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the United States are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. 

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Monday, September 17 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco.  More than 200 nominees and their guests attended. Details about The American Business Awards and the lists of Stevie Award winners who were announced on September 17 are available at www.stevieawards.com/aba
