Liam McSherry, Marketing Director at DISTREE Events, said: “Voters were instructed to assess distributors on the overall quality of their business performance during the last 12 months and their skills as a distribution partner. We asked them not to simply pick the biggest distributor in each region, but to select the companies that had impressed them most during the last year with their operations and go-to-market approach.”

“We want to congratulate all of the distributors that made the top three lists by region. With the pace of product innovation accelerating, plus new channel models and structures changing the traditional role of distribution, these companies should be recognised for their ability to innovate and evolve in line with market changes,” McSherry concluded.
