Telestream, a leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, was honored with two local business awards at a ceremony held Nov. 1 in Northern California. Telestream was presented with the Game Changer of the Year award and Dan Castles received the Executive of the Year award.
Hosted and organized originally by CEPCO, and since 2012 by Innovate North State, the North State Innovation Awards are an annual event with a 20-year tradition that have been expanded this year to encompass most of California north of Sacramento. Innovators, executives, educators and community leaders who enrich the area were celebrated at the event which honored 53 finalists in 15 categories.
“These awards recognize the years of hard work we have spent bringing a continual flow of cutting edge products to our customers, and doing so in a way that has allowed us to constantly extend our business model,” said Dan Castles, CEO of Telestream. “We have seen our annual sales grow each of our fifteen years, and in these turbulent economic times, this is no small feat.”
Prior award winners include market-leading companies such as Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Build.com. Companies are honored because of their innovative products or services and their game changing impact, not only locally, but statewide, nationally and globally.
Innovate North State’s Board Chairman Steve Gonsalves stated, “The event is truly emblematic of the region-wide innovation occurring in the California North State. We have finalists from 14 different communities, all of whom are making great things happen in the region, and we were proud to honor them at the North State Innovation Awards event.”
