Among Nashville businesses that are “hitting the high notes” of success, Green Apple Strategy received the Nashville Business Journal’s 2020 Best in Business award! The annual Best in Business luncheon was held on March 5th at The Westin Nashville, where Music City’s business community came together to celebrate growth and passion.
Who Qualifies for Best in Business?
Nominations for the 2020 Best in Business Awards were submitted in mid-2019, after which nominees were interviewed and required to submit an in-depth questionnaire. Nominated businesses were scored by an independent panel of judges based on attributes such as company culture, business plan, and profitability. Companies scoring the highest were named as the Best in Business for their respective categories, which were based on the number of employees.
Nominees and finalists were those that excel in service, growth, innovation, and strategy. Green Apple Strategy is honored to have been chosen by the Nashville business community as one of the city’s best in business and looks forward to a fantastic year ahead. “We are so grateful for the love and support of our community. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, and thank you, Nashville Business Journal, for giving us this opportunity,” says Samantha Owens Pyle, Owner and Chief Strategist at Green Apple Strategy.
How Green Apple Stood Out
As a recipient of this year’s award, Green Apple Strategy stood out from many deserving businesses because of its consistent growth, exceptional company culture, and strong team. Pyle attributes her company’s success to great people—team members and clients alike. “If you surround yourself with wonderful people, success will follow,” she adds.
The Nashville Business Journal provided nominees with a platform to showcase their companies’ personalities, asking them to choose a “theme song” for their companies and highlighting parts of their interviews for the crowd to enjoy. A Dave Matthews fan, Owens Pyle chose the band’s “What Would You Say” to express our passion for telling our clients’ stories. Her highlight from the nomination interview was also a glance into the company’s fun, vibrant personality. Upon being asked what she looks for in potential employees, she responded by saying that she looked for “dog people” to find the best people for her team.
