SEYMOUR, TN – Janet Livingston, owner and CEO of ONE Service Pros, headquartered in Seymour, has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run– worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Winners will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on December 9.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories. Ms. Livingston is honored to be recognized among such an impressive collection of women professionals and entrepreneurs.

In March 2019, Ms. Livingston launched "ONE Electric" as a response to the need for electrical services locally. As her service techs tackled projects for residents in the community, she learned that there were needs beyond electric services and slowly started to add additional offerings to best serve the community.

In under a year's time, Ms. Livingston started and grew an electric company to a multi-trade service company, with a multi-county service area. She is establishing and growing this brand, as a central solution for any problem. It is her goal to always be able to say, "yes, we can help" when someone calls with a need — and she has proved that in the ways she has grown ONE Service Pros. With continued focus on that goal, Ms. Livingston continues to evaluate the potential needs in her community and adds services as she identifies them. ONE Service Pros was built to evolve constantly to meet shifting demands of households and business.

"Janet Livingston spent most of her career in the call center and telephone answering service industry that grew into an Inc 5000 company," noted one of the judges. "While only 7% of HVAC company owners in the United States are women, Janet has ventured into this male-dominated industry with the spirit of an entrepreneur. Armed with the knowledge of how to plan, train, invest, organize and market from her service and consulting business, she’s positioned to leverage her experience to develop effective systems and efficiencies to grow and sustain profitability."

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries.

Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “In a year like no other in our lifetimes, we’ve produced a cohort of amazing, Stevie-winning women, organizations, and achievements like no other. At all times our winners show themselves to be fearless and indomitable, but their leadership and example are especially valued this year. We congratulate all of our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie winners. We look forward to celebrating them during our December 9 virtual ceremony.”

Ms. Livingston responded to her win by acknowledging the cornerstone of her success: ONE Service Pros customers. "We are grateful to the community for their support as we have grown our our little electric company into a 12 truck, multi-trade service company with a wide range of offerings that's slowly becoming a household name in the Seymour and greater Knoxville area."

Lisa Phillips, VP of Operations added, "Our customers continuously rave about the excellent service from our pros. Nearly every day we have someone sharing a great review with us and our phones ring with new customers that were referred by their friends." From preventative maintenance to major repairs, ONE Service Pros customers are overwhelmingly pleased with their experience.
