Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) February 03, 2011 -- OrganizIT! Inc, a Simi Valley, CA based company focusing on garage organization, was voted the "Best Garage Design Firm" at the Los Angeles Organizing Awards, produced annually by NAPO-LA, for the third year in a row. The Los Angeles Organizing Awards, sponsored by OfficeMax, is a one-of-a-kind public event celebrating the exemplary contributions that have helped shape the organizing industry. The Sixth Annual Los Angeles Organizing Awards was held at the Sheraton Universal Hotel, on Saturday, January 29, 2011 and was hosted by celebrity Lisa Ann Walter.
In only it's fourth year of doing business, OrganizIT! has now been awarded the "Best Garage Design Firm" for the last three years. Gus Gougas, President of OrganizIT! said, "It looks like we will be the first organization in Los Angeles this year that recorded a 3peat. First OrganizIT! and then hopefully the Los Angeles Lakers. All kidding aside, we were very honored to be awarded this prestigious award for NAPO, Los Angeles. And to win it three years in a row, is quite an accomplishment. I think this speaks volumes to our reputation of quality products and a high level of service". The garage organization industry is the fastest growing segment of the home improvement market. In a relatively short period of time, the garage organization industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry. "We are very pleased with the relationship we have forged with NAPO and its members. It truly is a perfect marriage of our service offerings and in the end, the client is the big winner", said Gougas.
The Los Angeles Organizing Awards are chosen by a popular national vote that took place online from October 31 through December 24. Twenty four awards were handed out, including eight awards for organizing products and retailers, six awards for organizing services, five awards to organizing professionals, two awards to media outlets and one special recognition award presented by Office Depot. The chapter also honored several of its members with chapter awards. The Volunteer of the Year Award is presented to the chapter member with an exemplary record of service. The Leading Edge Award recognizes a NAPO-LA member whose actions and efforts elevate the quality or profile of professional organizers everywhere.
