In winning the award, Special Needs Group founder and CEO Andrew Garnett commented, "It has always been an honor to serve the worldwide travel community and to remove barriers so that everyone can travel, despite physical limitations. Now, we are doubly honored by receiving this prestigious Stevie award. I want to thank my hardworking, caring staff."

More than 200 executives across the country participated in the judging process to determine the Finalists and Stevie Award winners.
