TTI wins Distributor of the Year Award
TTI has been awarded with the Distributor of the Year Award by Bourns. The annual awards celebrate Bourns' best performing distribution partners in the EMEA region. TTI was named winner in the Volume Partners category by Al Yost, COO and President of Bourns.
In addition, Marc Opitz, Senior Manager Strategic Product Marketing at TTI, became the first person to receive a new award; the Bourns MVP award. This new category was created to recognise individuals who have gone the extra mile to achieve exceptional levels of sales for Bourns.
“We are pleased to receive this prestigious award for the fifth time in Europe. Despite challenging market conditions, we have grown our business together by investing in broad and deep inventory, new project development activities and new product introductions,” said Felix Corbett, Director Supplier Marketing at TTI in Europe. “Our long-term partnership with Bourns and its investment in high quality products and service continues to enable us to support our customers across the full portfolio of passive and discrete technologies, helping us to meet customer needs on time and with the most reliable quality.”
“Bourns is delighted to announce TTI Europe has won the ‘Distributor of the year award’ for 2019, in the category of Bourns Volume Partners EMEA. Following a buoyant 2018, 2019 was challenging with corrections in the market, but TTI continued to provide excellent customer service. This was instrumental in TTI increasing its customer count and achieving the highest customer count among our volume distributors,” commented Ferdinand Leicher, Vice President Sales EMEA at Bourns. “The trend this year is largely affected by the impact of Covid-19. However, thanks to its professionalism and focus, TTI was able to maintain its high level of sales from the previous year.”
Beverly McKnight, Distribution Sales Manager EMEA at Bourns, added: “For the first time, Bourns has decided to recognise individuals whose focus has contributed significantly to our joint success. For 2019 we are awarding Marc Opitz, Senior Manager Strategic Product Marketing at TTI, with MVP as Most Valuable Performer for ‘Strong Relationship Business Development on Bourns’. We are thankful and appreciate his dedication to business development and the promotion of Bourns products within TTI Europe branches.”
