WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Sportsheets owner Tom Stewart was named Businessman of the Year while Emily Silva was named Account Executive of the Year at last night's retail edition of the 2018 XBIZ Exec Awards.
“Tom Stewart was thrilled to hear his name announced as the winner of XBIZ Businessman of the year,” a Sportsheet rep said. “Thanking his wife, his sister and partner, the whole Sportsheets team and his mom, who was in attendance, Tom gushed with gratitude and surprise at the great honor. Tom was also recognized, along with Scott Watkins, for his mentorship and friendship from former Sportsheets employee Benny Neff who was awarded XBIZ Brand Ambassador.”
Because Silva was sick at home with the flu, Kimberly Harding-Stewart, Sportsheets sales manager and wife of the owner Tom Stewart, accepted on her behalf.
“I have never felt as much love in this industry as I have tonight,” Silva said after learning of her win, “and that’s saying a lot because there is so much love all the time."
Tom commented, “Any of these individual wins are always considered wins for the whole team as everyone is so proud of their individual and combined accomplishments to make Sportsheets the great company it is today.”
Sportsheet’s president Julie Stewart added, “We are so grateful for these honors and the recognition from XBIZ, the industry and our wonderful and loyal customers who have made all of this possible. I am so proud of my brother, Tom Stewart, and our amazing salesperson Emily Silva. Tonight was an excellent evening for Sportsheets and for all of the other winners and nominees who work so hard to make this industry the family that it is.”
