Lebanon, NH – August 29, 2022 – The International Business Awards named Global Rescue a Silver Stevie® winner for Most Valuable Corporate Response To The Pandemic. The category honors exemplary responses by companies to the pandemic to ensure the well-being of their employees, customers and communities.

“It’s gratifying to be recognized for supplying unparalleled resources to address the increasingly challenging and complex world in which we live,” said Global Rescue CEO Dan Richards who is a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board.

Global Rescue provides travelers a better way to get help when they experience a medical or security emergency while away from home. When the pandemic started, travelers and expats found themselves trapped in an escalating series of government directives and medical orders to contain the sweep of the virus. Soon government authorities and public health officials restricted nearly all flights.

“From the first day of the pandemic, our mission expanded to include COVID-19 medical rescue and transport services,” Richards said. “The unprecedented circumstances made efforts to return travelers to their homes more challenging, but didn’t prevent Global Rescue’s experienced security and intelligence teams from conducting thousands of operations helping return individuals home,” he said.

Stevie® Award Judges’ comments praised the “complete plan to support the pandemic through great strategy” and called Global Rescue’s service “a shining light in the darkness during times of need.” Stevie® Awards president Maggie Miller called this year’s class of honorees “as innovative, adventuresome, persistent, and successful as we’ve ever had.”

Global Rescue’s pioneering methods and model have secured its reputation as the most forward-thinking service of its kind.   

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration. Stevie® Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 300 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process in June and July.
