ATLANTA – June 13, 2006 – LXE Inc. was named, for the second consecutive year, a Finalist in the “Best Customer Service Organization” category in the 2006 American Business Awards.

Hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” by the New York Post (April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 12, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 800 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be videocast on the Internet and broadcast on radio.

“LXE is proud to have achieved Finalist status once again in the American Business Awards’ competition,” stated Neil Cunningham, LXE’s director of customer service. “Being a finalist two years in a row is a significant achievement and a reflection of our absolute commitment to world-class customer service.”

Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners this week from among the Finalists. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in March through early May.

“Being named a Finalist in The American Business Awards is an important achievement,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. “It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of national recognition. We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition.”
