Samsung scoops three awards at the Independent Business Awards


Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, won three awards at this year’s Independent Business Awards, which recently took place at the Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club in Birmingham.

The Independent Business Awards are hosted by Independent Electrical Retailer magazine, who convey that the awards are the highest acclaimed celebration of excellence in the electrical industry, with the ceremony paying tribute to the people and companies operating within this marketplace.

Samsung scooped the Technical Innovation Award – Consumer Electronics for its Smart TV offering. The accolade recognises Samsung’s Smart TVs as the most innovative products with effectiveness being demonstrated via operational features and consumer benefits.

The Ultimate Top Supplier Award, also won by Samsung, rewards the breadth of quality products that provide a multitude of technology solutions, coupled with exceptionally high standard of business practice with key retail partners.

To complete the hat-trick of awards for Samsung, Robert Whittaker, Northern Regional Sales Manager, collected the Special Representative Award. Voted for by retailers, the award recognises Robert’s dedication to his clients; he has worked at Samsung Electronics for the last 19 years and is highly regarded by all of the Northern based accounts, having personally looked after most of them over the years.

Attracting some of the most influential names in the industry, over 250 professionals attended the evening event, where each of the 2011 winners were announced and presented with their prestigious award.

Commenting on the win, Andy Griffiths, Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung UK and Ireland, said: “Hot on the heels of the success at the consumer-voted Which? Awards, we are delighted to have the recognition from the trade in the form of the three awards won at the Independent Business Awards. Not only does this demonstrate that Samsung is at the forefront of product innovations and delivering these products to retail, but that we are also represented by the industry’s finest employees.”
