The Stevie Awards are a set of hundreds of business awards given annually by the American Business Awards organization. They were created in 2002 to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of companies and business people worldwide. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Awards are given to companies who exhibit excellence in the following areas: Business Development, Customer Service Success, New Product & Service, Sales Distinction, and Solution Provider.

This year we are thrilled to announce that our Customer Service department has won its fourth Stevie and was awarded Silver for Customer Service Department of the Year (Computer Software).

As WP Engine grows, we remain committed to our core value: Customer-Inspired. This means we will continue to amaze customers with our service, expertise, and transparency. We will continue to work hard to earn our customer’s loyalty and earn their advocacy with every action.

Additionally, our SVP of Global Sales, Matt Schatz, took home the Gold Stevie for Worldwide Sales Executive of the Year. Matt joined WP Engine as one of the first sales representatives in 2013. Since then, he has strategically and systematically expanded the sales organization worldwide. Matt has spearheaded the company’s growth to $100M in annual recurring revenue, a feat the company reached in January 2018 and one that only .04% of companies a year accomplish.

“Matt’s genuine care and loyalty to his team is second to none. He leads by example and sets the stage on what’s expected for his organization to be successful. Matt also takes the time to truly get to know every person in his organization regardless of title. You can see him personally get energized by learning people’s life stories and how he can help them reach their goals. Leaders like Matt are what makes WP Engine a great company to work for and why I continue to give my best daily. Matt has not only made me a better professional, but also a better person.” -Mike Sanchez, Sr. Director, Global SMB and Partner Sales
