Lyons Consulting Group (LYONSCG), the premier digital agency helping retailers, branded manufacturers and B2B merchants realize their eCommerce potential, announced today that three of its employees have won awards at the 12th annual 2015 Stevie® Awards For Women in Business. Danielle Savin, Director of Digital Consulting Services, won a silver award as Female Executive of the Year in the Business Services category for 11 to 2,500 employees. Christine Bedalow, Director of Talent Acquisition, won a bronze award in the same category. Sarah Griffis, Senior eCommerce Strategy Consultant, was honored with a bronze award for Employee of the Year in the Business Advertising, Marketing, Public Relations and Business Services category. The awards were announced at a gala celebration on November 13th in New York City

“Danielle, Christine and Sarah are tremendous assets to our clients as well as their co-workers within our firm,” says Richard Lyons, President and CEO of Lyons Consulting Group. “They are shining examples of confidence and success to all women in our profession. We are extremely proud to have them as a part of LYONSCG.”

Savin works closely with client teams to help define the scope and recommend approaches for major digital projects and retail strategy. She plays a consultative advisory role on client engagements, serving as a digital strategy advisor to both account leads and clients. Savin has more than 17 years’ experience in the eCommerce industry, launching her first site in 1998.

Bedalow is responsible for leading the team at LYONSCG that identifies and recruits talent for the organization’s six practice areas. Since she arrived at LYONSCG in late 2013, she has helped the company add roughly 200 employees, nearly tripling the LYONSCG worldwide workforce. Earlier she had been named to the LinkedIn 100 Class of 2015; an exclusive program that celebrates LinkedIn’s top global customers and their groundbreaking work in talent acquisition.

Griffis helps her clients in eCommerce strategy development, performance analysis, and marketing management. She is well respected by clients and co-workers alike, and in 2014 was recognized by Consulting magazine as one of the industry’s top 35 Rising Stars of the Profession.

“Consulting is often considered a male-dominated profession, so we work hard to ensure team member diversity, creating an environment where everyone can succeed,” says Norman A. Alesi, COO and CFO of LYONSCG. “Danielle, Christine, and Sarah inspire women within our company and across our industry. Their recognition by the Stevie Awards is well-deserved.”

The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards designed to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals.   The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honors worldwide women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run. More than 100 global business professionals chose finalists during the preliminary judging of the Women in Business honor.
