Camera House has awarded Canon Australia ‘Supplier of the Year 2014’ at the group’s AGM in Manly on Saturday, November 1.
Jason McLean, director, Consumer Imaging, Canon Australia said the award was very satisfying ‘given the pockets of hysteria in the market regarding Canon’s strategy.’
‘This award is something we’re incredibly proud of as it acknowledges the real results of our massive efforts to partner at retail for mutual success based on satisfying the consumer need,’ said Mr McLean. ‘Camera House have really embraced our consumer-centric ethos and we have evolved from a transactional relationship into a strategic partnership. We see nothing but opportunities ahead of us and look forward to driving growth together into the future.’
Camera House chairman Lance Miller summed up Canon’s contribution: ‘No other supplier has driven consumers into our stores more, no other supplier has driven the market harder, and this supplier has delivered profit into our business.’
The award is based on a vote of Camera House members.
