UK – EAW recently honored this year’s top distributors in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region with an awards ceremony, held during PLASA08 in London.
Receiving Distributor of the Year honors was Barcelona-based Pro3 & Co., EAW’s distributor for Spain. Petah Tikva-based Pro Touch, EAW’s Israeli distributor, won Most Improved Distributor. EAW’s distributor for the Netherlands, Amsterdam-based Holland PA Services BV, won Most Consistent Distributor. The awards were presented by European sales manager Sean Martin during the company’s annual EMEA Distributor Meeting at the Chelsea Football Stadium.
Martin credits these key distributors, as well as the entire EAW EMEA sales force, with producing record numbers in the first half of 2008. He had particularly complimentary things to say about each of this year’s three award winners.
"Pro3 has been EAW Europe’s number one distributor in terms of sales for the past few years. They have a great team who fully support and represent the brand exactly as it should be, so it is no surprise that this effort and enthusiasm is reflected in their stellar results.
"Pro Touch finds homes for a remarkable amount of EAW product in Israel. Their increase in sales volume in recent years is nothing short of meteoric. No stone is left unturned by Pro Touch.
"Holland PA is one of EAW’s most long-standing distributors, and regardless of market or industry ups and downs, their performance never drops. They are possibly the archetypal distributor model to which all distributors should aspire."
Martin continued, "These awards reflect EAW’s commitment and personal relationship with the distributor/sales force in the EMEA region. No one works harder than our distributors, and they help us post the numbers to prove it. These award-winners set a high bar, and I look forward to working with our entire team of distributors to match and surpass it through the rest of 2008 and into 2009."
