Kannaway was announced today as a Stevie Awards winner by the International Business Awards. The 16th Annual International Business Awards, or the “International Stevie Awards”, are the world’s premier business awards, held each year to recognize the best in international business.
Kannaway took home two International Stevie Awards this year. Kannaway is a Bronze Stevie Winner in the category Fastest-Growing Company of the Year - in Canada and the U.S.A. Kannaway is the first company dedicated to CBD products to win an International Stevie Award. This honor is largely the result of Kannaway’s efforts to open new markets for our line of hemp and CBD products around the world, introducing the benefits of CBD to international consumers.
Our CEO Blake Schroeder was also announced as a Silver Stevie Award winner. Schroeder received a Silver Stevie for Executive of the Year - Health Products & Services category. Schroeder joined Kannaway as CEO in Q2 of 2016. Since then, he has helped guide Kannaway toward record growth while overseeing a fresh new vision for the Kannaway brand.
Last year, there were more than 3,900 Stevie Award nominations for companies from 74 different nations. More than 1,000 professionals worldwide participate in the Stevie Award judging process each year, and judges include many of the world's most respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators.
This is not Kannaway’s first Stevie Award. Kannaway received a Gold Stevie Award in the Medium Company of the Year - Health Products & Services category in The 17th Annual American Business Awards earlier this year.
Kannaway parent company Medical Marijuana, Inc. also won a Bronze Stevie for Most Innovative Company of the Year - Up to 100 Employees.
