LAKE FOREST, Calif., June 3, 2024 — Toshiba America Business Solutions’ social media leader Robert Catalano secures the Gold Stevie® Award in The 2024 American Business Awards® for Best Business Influencer of the Year.

This Gold Stevie is presented to the individual demonstrating innovation in social media content creation and moderation, management, and marketing.

The American Business Awards are the premier business awards program in the United States.  All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.  More than 300 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“Decision-making and relationship building occur more and more online, which makes a strong social media presence a key part of our U.S. market economy,” Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller says.  “This year’s Stevie Awards judges recognized Robert Catalano’s pivotal role in Toshiba’s social media innovation and his marketing acumen.”

Catalano particularly won the prestigious national honor by bolstering Toshiba’s social media presence through his original approach and strategic vision.  Catalano’s keen understanding of audience preferences and trends enables him to lead compelling campaigns that resonate with Toshiba stakeholders resulting in an 84% year-to-year (from April 1, 2022 to April 1, 2023) increase in social media engagement.

“Team Toshiba is proud of Robert for earning the 2024 Gold Stevie for Best Business Influencer of the Year,” states Toshiba America Business Solutions Director of Field Marketing and Events Salley Thornton.  “By consistently elevating our organization’s social media presence at an elite level day-in-and-day-out, he is truly deserving of this significant honor.”
