Quest Names as Finalist in 2008 American Business Awards

6th annual Stevie® Awards will be presented on June 12 in New York City

Sacramento, CA: May 14, 2008 — Quest was named a Finalist today for two videos in the Sales: Technology category in The 2008 American Business Awards: "Inside Out – Guess Who's Stealing Your Data" and "Master Your Disaster – Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery."

Hailed as "the business world’s own Oscars" (New York Post, April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business. Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Thursday, June 12 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 600 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Liz Claman of FOX Business Network.

More than 2,600 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories. Quest will be competing in the Technology Sales category.

The video "Inside Out – Guess who’s stealing your data?" features well known industry experts, including the FBI and business owners, facing continuous security threats from both external hackers and internal sources. The video "Master Your Disaster – Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery" looks at how businesses respond to disasters that are both natural and man-made. Featuring interviews from business executives and consultants charged with creating and maintaining a BCP/DR plan, it touches real-world situations and solutions. Both videos were produced by Beth Freeman of Freeman Media using the talents of Rico Corona, Director of Photography and in collaboration with Editor, Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media.

Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners from among Finalists in final judging during the week of May 19. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April through early May.

Quest President and CEO, Tim Burke, responds, "We are proud to be recognized as a finalist. Our inspiration comes from working closely with our clients to analyze, provide, deploy, manage and monitor the necessary technology to reach their business objectives using the best technology products and services available."

"These topics are timely and it is extremely important for businesses to protect themselves by learning about available technology solutions from a trusted provider," states Barbara Klide, Quest’s Director of Marketing.
