Broadline distributor Redington Gulf dished out 21 awards to its best-performing partners at its fifth annual awards night in Dubai last week.

The company, which addresses the SMB, corporate and retail markets, honoured partners from around the region in a number of categories.

Retail giants Carrefour and Al Ghanim bagged the two big awards of the night, walking off with the ‘Most Valuable Partner of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Partner of the Year’ titles respectively.

They weren’t the only retailers to head home with a prize, however. Both UAE-based Jacky’s Electronics and Sharaf DG won an “Excellence in Sales – Retail” award for their efforts over the past year.

Achiever Computers secured the “SMB Partner of the Year” gong for the second year running, while Cadd Emirates nabbed the “Corporate Partner of the Year” accolade. Redington also recognised ECS Distribution with the “Emerging Partner of the Year” award for its outstanding performance over the last two years in Egypt.

Elsewhere, “special recognition awards” — based on various parameters — were awarded to Kuwait-based AIMS and UAE-based duo Seenen Information Technology and Silicone World Computers.

“Redington is proud to host the annual awards every year, recognising invaluable contributions of our customers and our valuable vendors, whose support make possible the phenomenal growth witnessed by Redington Gulf for over a decade since our inception,” stated Raj Shankar, CEO at Redington Gulf.

Bombay-listed Redington, which serves more than 18 markets in the Middle East and Africa region, is a major distribution partner for brands such as Acer, Canon, Dell, HP, IBM, Samsung, Toshiba and Western Digital.
