Caps 2019 with Female Entrepreneur and Company of the Year Awards
Philadelphia, PA– Valerie Schlitt, CEO of VSA, Inc., a premier telesales and customer service firm with offices in Philadelphia and New Jersey, was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category at the 16th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. VSA also received a Bronze Stevie Award for Company of the Year at the event, held November 15 in New York City.
“Valerie is a dynamic entrepreneur who capitalizes on her strategic abilities to manage people and resources to create success,” said one of the Female Entrepreneur of the Year judges. “Her vision makes her a champion in managing and sustaining successful businesses.”
Earlier this year, VSA was ranked No. 717 on Inc. magazine’s 38th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies; No. 6 on the Philadelphia Soaring 76, the Philadelphia Business Journal’s fourth annual recognition of the region’s fastest-growing public and private companies; and No. 15 on the 2019 Philadelphia 100 list of fastest-growing privately held companies. In addition, the company was recognized for the second consecutive year as one of Philadelphia’s Best Places to Work.
“Being recognized by the Stevie Award judges in both of these categories is such an honor,” said Schlitt. “There is tremendous value in making space for multigenerational team members who don’t fit a typical 9-to-5 workday, and I am so proud of the work they do to deliver exceptional results for our clients.”
