Rosetta Stone reaps awards
- June 24, 2009
It’s been a big week for Rosetta Stone.
Earlier this week, the language-learning software company’s CEO, Tom Adams, was named Executive of the Year at the 7th Annual American Business Awards.
Adams has been with the company since 2003. The company went public in April, raising $112.5 million during its IPO.
In addition, the company has announced that its Classroom Version 3 won an American Educational Publisher’s Distinguished Achievement Award. It won the award for its English as a Second Language (ESL)/ English Language Learner (ELL) curriculum for high school students.
“It is a great privilege to be recognized for the excellence of our ESL instruction,” Adams said in a statement. “As the face of America changes and grows more multicultural, Rosetta Stone Classroom is proud to give teachers the tools to do what they do best and provide ESL students around the country with the opportunity to unlock their natural language ability.”
