          Adrian Butler, VOW MD said, “for our channel to stay competitive in a dynamic market needs the entire supply chain from factory to consumer to work collaboratively and effectively. This is the one time a year when we get to publicly recognise exceptional performance from some of our key partners in that process, manufacturers, account managers and resellers. It gives us the opportunity to say thank you and show that we value the service that they offer. Being a finalist or a winner opens up lots of opportunity for those on the shortlists to make a splash on social media, in newsletters and conversation with their customers and suppliers. We hope it also gives a boost to them all to know that it’s recognised that they are doing a great job.”

          Helen Wade, Marketing Director added, “whilst it’s nice to receive an award in front of your peers at an industry event, its generally the dealer principal who attends. Their team, who often have the day-to-day relationships with VOW and are responsible for delivering the great performance that we want to recognise, miss out. This year, we will be announcing the winners straight after Green Light, but the winners will be presented with their awards in their own premises by a member of our senior management team. It gives us the chance to say thank you to everyone in a more personal way. We’ll take the principal out for dinner and make sure that the staff get treated too. Everyone’s a winner.”

          The winners will be announced on the 10th December and awards presented soon after.
