We are very proud to announce that Retail Assist have won the Sales and Marketing Award at this year’s Nottingham Post Business Awards.
Held on the 22nd May 2019 at the East Midlands Conference Centre, hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the best Nottingham companies and their individual successes over the last year.
This year, we were thrilled to win the Sales and Marketing Award and to be a finalist for the Customer Service Excellence Award.
Sponsors for each category were responsible for choosing three finalists, with one overall winner. The Sales and Marketing Award was sponsored by Stirland Paterson and the judges praised our ‘impressive results, thanks to (Retail Assist’s) dynamic and forward-thinking strategies’.
Alex Broxson, Head of Marketing said: “We are absolutely delighted with the award win. The Sales and Marketing team has continued its progression and seen a fantastic year of growth. We have brought in 18 new clients over the last 18 months, had a substantial increase in PR, website visitors and lead generation. Everything we do is geared towards business growth, so it’s great to see that coming to fruition and win the award which recognises the hard work and effort that goes into everything that we do”.
Announcing the winner, Group HR Director, Julia Stirland, said: “This is our fourth year of sponsoring the Sales and Marketing Award. Every year, the entries have got better and better, making our job very difficult to pick a winner. But this year’s very worthy winner is Retail Assist.”
Renato Pastorino, Chief Commercial Officer, said: “I’m immensely proud of the team for the achievements and results they have generated for the business, and that this has been recognised by winning the award. We are continuing to grow and bring in some impressive client brands. Sales and Marketing is very much one team for us and this is demonstrated by the connectedness of campaigns, our approach and resulting new business that is generated by the team. Well done to the team and everyone who was shortlisted at the awards.”
Along with this, we were also finalists for the hotly contended Customer Service Excellence Award, a new category implemented this year. With an overwhelming number of businesses who had applied, we were delighted to have reached the final three as testament to the consistent levels of customer service that our teams deliver every day.
