MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwired - March 30, 2016) - American Home Shield, the nation's largest provider of home warranties, is honored to receive the 2016 Women's Choice Award for America's Most Recommended Home Warranty Provider.

The award, given by WomenCertified Inc., a leading advocate for female consumers, is based on results from a national survey distributed to tens of thousands of women across America and is awarded to the brand they identify as one they would highly recommend to their family and friends.

"Our home warranties provide a level of convenience and value that's unmatched in our industry," said Tim Haynes, president of American Home Shield, a company of ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SERV). "This is an increasingly social world that relies on peer input and we are thrilled that women across the country are spreading the word about the value of our home warranties."

The Women's Choice Award serves as a competitive differentiator in today's cluttered marketplace, especially considering research findings that show the majority of consumers are more likely to trust recommendations from their peers over marketing and advertising initiatives.

"When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty," said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder. "We are pleased to salute American Home Shield for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide."
