TAMPA, FL (October 3, 2019) - The Welfont Companies Amy Stevenson was recently announced a finalist for the 16th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business. Amy has more than 15 years of experience in various areas of real estate and is the Broker of Record and Vice President for Welfont in Tampa. Amy is a finalist for three different awards in three different categories: Female Executive of the Year - Business Services, Woman of the Year - Industry and Maverick of the Year.
Amy was also recently recognized in August 2019 by the Tampa Bay Business Journal for making their 2019 Business Woman of the Year list. The Business Woman of the Year is one of TBBJ’s most anticipated and coveted honors, as this community continues to boast some of the most dynamic and influential business women in the Tampa Bay area. The Welfont Companies could not be more proud that Amy is now being nationally recognized as a Stevie® Awards finalist.
Founder Joe Johnson, PhD, stated, “Amy has been instrumental to the growth and success of Welfont since our launch. When you’re a startup growing from $100,000 in revenue to over $20 million in 4 years (over 16,700%), there is naturally a lot of chaos and Amy has been putting order and efficiency to Welfont’s chaos since day one. If it wasn’t for Amy, Welfont would have ran off the rails but Amy kept Welfont on the rails to success.”
The Stevie® Awards are the world's premier business awards. They were created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. The Stevie has become one of the world's most coveted prizes.

Mike Mehaffey, COO, stated “The Welfont Companies would not be the #1 fastest growing commercial real estate brokerage in the country without her.”
