20th January 2015 – Orlando, Florida: The PEX Awards winners were announced to a 500+ capacity crowd at PEX Week 2015 earlier on this evening at the plush Bonnet Creek Hilton Hotel in Orlando.

Among the winners, Singtel, the Singapore telecommunications giant, scooped wins for "Best Process Improvement Project Under 90 Days" and "Best Technology-Enabled Process Improvement Project". ANZ Banking Group won the coveted "Best Start Up Business Process Improvement Program (Under 2 Years)" and Catalent Pharma Solutions’ own Sridhar Krishnan won "Program Director of the Year".

This year, judging for the Awards ceremony took place prior to PEX Week for the first time, giving those contenders who were unable to attend the gathering, a chance to compete in their chosen category. Through a series of intense video interviews, finalists were able to pitch their process improvement projects to our judging panel.

Director of Operations and the driving force behind the awards ceremony, Amanda Jenkins, said "Despite all odds the caliber of entries increases each and every year, and this year has been no exception. The new direction we adopted for the judging process meant that this year, the field was wide open for those wishing to compete for the top spots and our entrants have not disappointed."

"All of the finalists should be incredibly proud of what they’ve managed to achieve," said PEX Network Director, Vanessa Lovatt. "Whether they take home a trophy or not, these awards are incredibly competitive and the bar gets raise year on year, meaning that as a finalist, you’ve already out-shone so many of your peers and contemporaries – it’s less a list of finalists and more a list of the finest."
