The Best Award for Excellence went to Better Life, Gigaset’s distributor in the UAE, and was received by the company’s General Manager Mr. Anurag Guglani and Deputy General Manager Mr. Hammad Al Gurg in the presence of high-ranking officials from Gigaset’s head offices in Germany. Better Life, an enterprise of Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group, made its mark on the region owing to its exceptional display, innovative promotions and achievement of targets as a specialist home appliance company representing world leading brands.
Gigaset CEO for the Middle East, Africa and India, Mr. Shahzad Ahmed said, “We have over 20 distributors in the MEA & India region looking after our cordless and corded phones business. Our prime focus has been on below the line activities, participating in select promotions and focusing on sell out and regular training to shop floor staff. We also focus on regular co-promotion activities with select retail channel partners. It is no surprise that Better Life has once again proved to be an outstanding and valuable partner. Gigaset has been associated with Better Life in the UAE since its inception in the market.”
