This distinction is only awarded on an occasional basis. It celebrates the continued efforts of standout individuals working at partner organizations that have significantly contributed to increasing Harwin’s sales revenue and helped the company to attain long-term growth. The award is given out under the personal direction of the company’s Chairman, Damon de Laszlo.
On this occasion, David Botton – Vice President of Application Engineering & Sales at Israeli distributor ShirTech – has been presented with the prize. It recognises the major influence he’s had on raising Harwin’s profile in the region, and securing sales across the newly-redefined HRi high-reliability, BBi board-to-board and EZi board-level hardware product categories. It has resulted in year-on-year increases in booking and billing figures, with particularly strong uptake in avionics, commercial space, radar and medical oriented projects.
