Ryan Wins 2011 International Service Excellence Award; Ranked Top Client Service Company for Second Consecutive Year

Press Release Feb 20, 2012

Dallas, Texas – Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with the largest indirect tax practice in North America, today announced that the Firm received the prestigious 2011 International Service Excellence Award. Sponsored by the Customer Service Institute of America (CSIA) and the International Council of Customer Service Organizations (ICCSO), this exclusive award recognizes top organizations across the world that achieve world-class customer service excellence.

For the second consecutive year, Ryan ranked first in the Medium Business category of organizations with between 501 and 3,999 employees. This honor was based on the Firm’s proven record of consistently exceeding the rigorous criteria of the International Customer Service Standard (ICSS), which was developed to provide a comprehensive and practical framework for assisting organizations in delivering consistently high levels of service. Ryan demonstrated the highest level of competence in key judging criteria that included the breadth, depth, and proven results of the Firm’s customer service approach, client involvement in the Firm’s strategic direction, and continuous measurement and improvement of client service delivery based on ICSS criteria.

This exclusive recognition follows Ryan’s 2011 attainment of the CSIA’s International Customer Service Standard certification, validating the Firm’s superior client service and quality management processes for delivering client service excellence. Ryan achieved ICSS certification as a first-time applicant for the designation—an accomplishment achieved by only 40% of ICSS candidates—and also recorded the highest certification score ever produced in an initial application by a North American organization.

“Relentless dedication to achieving the highest quality results for our clients is woven into the fabric of our culture,” said G. Brint Ryan, CEO and Managing Principal of Ryan. “We are proud to be honored with this prestigious recognition for the second consecutive year and remain committed to delivering the very best client service and value possible.”
