Vienna, VA, June 16, 2014 –Trowbridge & Trowbridge, LLC (T&T) has won two American Business Awards (ABA) for Best Support Team and Best Support Staffer, both related to the company’s successful CMMI appraisal efforts. The recipient of the Best Support Staffer award was T&T employee Sandra Steves.

Both awards were announced June 13 in Chicago. “We couldn’t be more excited or proud of our staff,” said T&T President and CEO Karen Trowbridge. “These awards are very prestigious and provide tangible evidence that we deliver superior support to our customers. A heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the T&T employees who made these awards possible.”

These ABAs recognize the effort put forth by T&T’s internal support team to achieve a successful CMMI appraisal in March 2014. This appraisal empowered T&T to continuously improve custom applications development for clients and required months of intense work and preparation under Steves’ leadership.

“The challenge of delineating the required processes while still meeting customer needs was severe, but initial challenges presented us with opportunities to identify the crucial elements needed for success,’ explained T&T COO Chris Brandell. “The team had done great work, but needed an on-site champion [Steves] to focus their efforts.” The support team ultimately provided T&T’s customer with unprecedented access to operational data, paving the way for increased efficiency, reduction of errors, and staff empowerment.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. T&T was one of five finalists in each of its two nominated categories. More than 3,300 nominations were submitted this year in a wide range of categories.

T&T is a CMMI Maturity Level 2 appraised small business providing premier information technology, data center operations, cyber security, and unified communications services to the federal civilian, defense, and health markets. For additional information, contact Ty Bachus at 571-499-4150, x2311, or
