America's Fastest-Growing TV Brand Honored at 11th Annual Stevie® Awards

CORONA, CA., February 28, 2017 - TCL®, one of the world’s largest and America’s fastest-growing television brand, has won Gold and Silver Stevie® Awards in the Customer Service Team of the Year and Back-Office Customer Service Professional of the Year categories at the 11th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. More than 2,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. 

“I joined TCL with the vision to assemble and empower a dedicated team who could focus solely on the consumer and deliver world-class customer service,” said Chris Luna, Director of Customer Advocacy, TCL. “I’m thrilled to see our team’s efforts being recognized for the service they provide to our customers. TCL has quickly become a global and domestic powerhouse, and I look forward to continuing TCL’s success as a leading consumer brand who puts the customer first.” 

Committing to become the number three TV brand in the U.S. by 2020, TCL restructured its Customer Service leadership in 2015 after thoughtful analysis of its product support processes. By setting clear objectives for the team and empowering its team members, TCL has been able to deliver a service experience that consistently exceeds customer expectations. In just one year, TCL has seen dramatic gains in Customer Satisfaction, Customer Loyalty and First Contact Resolution. 

“TCL’s focus is on delivering world-class products backed by best-in-class customer support,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL. “Our award-winning TCL Roku TV has been consistently recognized as one of the best TVs in the market, so it is exciting to now have our customer advocacy team honored by the Stevie Awards for their commitment to the customer. We are the fastest-growing TV brand in North America and this progress is in large part due to our ability to listen to our customers and deliver an ownership experience that is second to none.” 

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development and sales professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world’s leading business awards programs including the prestigious American Business AwardsSM and International Business AwardsSM. 

“The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continues to be among the most competitive and fastest-growing of our awards programs,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “The growth of the program illustrates the importance of the functions highlighted – sales, business development and customer service – to successful enterprises of all types, and how integral recognition in these domains are to building and maintaining corporate reputations.” 

More than 75 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging earlier this month.
