The Tampa Bay Business Journal, an award-winning publication, features news, events and various industry articles, specialized for a target market of assorted regional businesses. Their call for nominations led to a record breaking pool of 360 applicants of which only a select fifty-two were named finalists by a distinguished panel of judges. Those candidates were separated into eight different categories ranging from Education to Manufacturing to even Non-Profit/Social Services, based upon the information they provided which detailed the candidate’s relevant work history, community involvement, accomplishments, and the importance of relationship-building both within their particular organization and with clientele. Kimberly During was selected as a finalist in the Technology category for her unique contribution to the field which spans almost two decades. Furthermore, the Tampa Bay Business Journal also posed an introspective question to the nominees regarding their personal experiences with how they’ve dealt with adversity and overcome obstacles during their careers. As a finalist, K.Tek’s CEO Kimberly During knew the profound importance of this question. She noted, "As in life, the business world is not without challenges, yet it is how we deal with those hardships that truly define who we are as business leaders. It boils down to sheer determination and perseverance – this is what ensures sustained business success across every industry."

This will lead up to a formal gala which will be held to honor all of the finalists on Friday, August 19th at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in St. Petersburg, Florida. Each finalist will be honored by the presentation of individual video interviews highlighting their specific business achievements as they walk across the stage in recognition.
