The Federation of Wholesale Distributors’ annual search for the best people and products in the wholesale channel kicks off this week with a call for nominations for the Gold Medal Awards 2014.
For the past 25 years FWD has recognised and rewarded the efforts of wholesalers and suppliers who have made an exceptional contribution not only to their own businesses but to the wholesale sector. With awards for individuals, teams and brands, the Gold Medals are the ultimate reflection of commitment to the distributive route to market.
This year sees the introduction of new individual awards, the Gold Medal for Customer Support and the Gold Medal Depot Team Member. Among the 11 medals or wholesalers are two environmental awards introduced in 2013. Supplier medals, for product contribution and company service, are nominated and voted for by FWD members.
Nomiinations for supplier medals must be received by FWD by August 15, 2014. Entry forms for the wholesaler medals will be sent out once nominations are registered with FWD and completed entries must be returned by September 19, 2014.
Award winners will be chose by a panel of FWD associate members.
The Gold Medal Awards presentation and dinner take place at the HAC Royal Artillery Gardens, London, on November 27 2014. For more details go to http://www.fwd.co.uk/viewnews.asp?newsid=295
