2020 was a year that required determination and grit to succeed in a world where the playing field was constantly changing and business-as-usual was a distant memory. We are honored to bestow our Symetrix Rep and Distributor of the Year awards recognizing those who displayed outstanding partnership and sales performance in a given year, and also to celebrate winners of the new Chairman’s Streetfighter awards.
First, we are delighted to honor the the EZPro International team with the Symetrix Distributor of the Year Award for the APAC region 2020.
EZPro has a reputation for excellence. They have a large dealer network across the many different states and provinces of China and a very complete team with a strong technical background who are able to thoroughly support their dealer network. From design and installation of large-scale, complicated audio-visual projects to their keen sense for innovative marketing efforts, the EZPro team have set the standard of excellence for Symetrix distributors across the world.
Winning the Symetrix Distributor of the Year Award for the EMEA region 2020 is . . . Audio Technica Benelux! The Audio Technica Benelux technical sales team are best in class, particularly regarding their ongoing dealer support. This sophisticated level of sales expertise and support married with improvements to conventional and social marketing translated directly into a significant sales growth over the previous year.
In the US, we’re thrilled to recognize Griffith Sales as the US Rep of the Year. The team at Griffith Sales, led by Scott Hough, have a reputation for excellence which was clearly evident in 2020 as they achieved above target and grew their business significantly.
Griffith Sales adapted to the “new normal” presented by the pandemic and kept on working for their dealers and their vendors. The team displayed outstanding salesmanship in a tough year.
Now for something new for 2020. The Chairman’s Streetfighter Award is a prestigious award which recognizes those who despite all the odds had a total knock out year in 2020. Five individuals across the world were awarded the Chairman’s Streetfighter Award.
Felipe Vargas, Audio Americas. Felipe is worthy of the Streetfighter award for his performance in the ring by bringing on new distributors, hosting countless trainings and for translating the Composer training into Spanish.
F-Musiikki Oy. In 2020, F-Musiikki Oy not only achieved outstanding sales performance, but their new product adoption rate is also worthy of The Chairman’s recognition. For every new product launched by Symetrix in 2020, F-Musiikki Oy were first in line to place an order and to take delivery of new products. Today, they continue to maintain an outstanding endpoint attachment rate.
AudioBrains. The ‘never give-up’ fighting spirit maintained by the Audio Brains team was clearly evident in 2020 as this team miraculously increased their sales performance significantly over the previous year in the midst of a pandemic sweeping the globe and disrupting many businesses across the world.
Audio Brains also completed the construction of 2 new Demo Rooms featuring a full range of Symetrix products and were awarded the very prestigious project of Ritsumeikan University featuring over 200 Symetrix Radius products. The AudioBrains team were also pioneers in spearheading the Symetrix Lua Scripting beta testing program.
Michael Austin, Native Media. Michael has been a Symetrix partner for over 20 years and has his territory humming along like a well-oiled machine. During the very difficult challenges presented in 2020, Michael was able to meet the high standard he set in 2019 by achieving the same revenue levels. Additionally, he was able to grow his top dealer by over 10% in this very difficult year.
Brad Horbal, Bormann Marketing. Brad Horbal is a true street fighter. Consistently digging out new business and growing revenue, his single-minded dedication gets results. He knows the technology inside out and uses his knowledge and experience to win business away from the competition.
Congratulations to all of these exceptional award-winners!
