Affordable Language Services Named a Semi-Finalist as the Best in Private Business.

Affordable Language Services is proud to announce the recognition as a semi-finalist for the 18th Annual, 2017 Goering Center Awards.

Affordable Language Services has been supporting the language service industry for over 18 years. In 2016, the company decided to take a step back and look at where we were and more importantly where we wanted to go. With 36 employees located in Blue Ash, Ohio and over 600 linguistic vendor partners worldwide, Affordable Language Services decided that to achieve significant growth it had to make strategic changes.The company hired a General Manager, Director of Sales, Director of Operations as well as a Strategic Planning and a Marketing Consultant. In addition to leadership, the company has undergone a brand refresh with a new logo, color scheme, brand voice and defined differentiators.  Affordable Language Services have just completed a major website redesign to allow finding information and providing quotes easier for their customers. They are excited about their accomplishments in 2017 and look forward to accelerated growth in the months to come.

"Thank you to the Goering Center for recognizing area businesses and business leaders that strive to offer the Cincinnati market the best products and services. Affordable Language Services feels honored to be a semi-finalist," says Lynn Elfers, CEO.

As a semi-finalist, Affordable Language Services will be further evaluated by an independent panel of judges who will be looking at the breakthroughs and accomplishments that distinguished their business – and the Cincinnati region – in 2017.

The 2017 Goering Center Family & Private Business Awards winners will be announced at the awards gala this fall at the JACK Cincinnati Casino on Sept. 12, 2017.  This annual recognition program, in its 18th year, honors Cincinnati regional businesses that exemplify the best in family and private business practices.  Each year more than 500 businesses are nominated for these awards and from those nominees, 75 semi-finalists are selected.                   

On Sept. 12, 2017, three awards will be presented in each of two divisions: family business and private business. Additionally, the 2017 Goering Center Hall of Fame winner and the Baldwin Volunteer of the Year will both be celebrated, and the Goering Center will recognize its first annual Rising Leader – one of nine emerging leaders who is shaping the future of Cincinnati businesses.
