The TowerStar Awards: Celebrating Excellence at American Tower

For more than two decades, American Tower has taken great pride in honoring the remarkable talent within its global workforce through the TowerStar Awards. These awards recognize both individuals and teams who consistently contribute to our collective success while embodying our Core Principles: Understanding and fulfilling our customers’ needs, empowering and hiring excellent people, focusing on solutions rather than problems, honoring commitments, enjoying what we do, and striving for victory. These principles serve as the bedrock of our organizational culture, shaping our work ethic, and fostering mutual accountability among our team members.

What sets the TowerStar Awards apart is their inclusivity, as every member of the American Tower community has the opportunity to nominate their peers. In 2024, the enthusiasm for recognizing excellence was palpable, with over 2,300 nominations submitted by team members. Each year, our TowerStar recipients are invited to our headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, where they come together to celebrate their accomplishments, engage with other leaders, and partake in a special dinner alongside our Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team.

At American Tower, our shared success is fundamentally driven by our people. Our local teams worldwide understand that collaboration and the sharing of best practices are essential for delivering top-notch support to our customers across all our sites. The customer and employee experiences are intertwined, and both thrive in a culture that prioritizes teamwork and support.

The TowerStar Award winners of 2024 have left a lasting impact on American Tower through their significant contributions, ranging from enhancements in customer service to operational advancements. Some of their notable achievements include standardizing processes across multiple countries, spearheading projects like rural built-to-suit sites and innovative tower designs, enhancing network performance, implementing new systems and tools for more efficient data utilization, and relentlessly pursuing customer satisfaction. Equally noteworthy is the manner in which this work was accomplished—each TowerStar demonstrated collaboration, effective communication, and a strong sense of teamwork.
