Konica Minolta announced its dealer award winners, recognizing accomplishments during its 2020 and 2021 fiscal years (April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2022).
The awards were announced Tuesday, April 26 during Konica Minolta’s “Full Throttle” 2022 Dealer Summit. The event was held at the company’s U.S. Headquarters in Ramsey, NJ, where a General Session was followed by a wide range of educational breakout sessions to help dealers discover new opportunities for growth through digital transformation. A major focus of the event was Konica Minolta’s new dealer performance program, Rev’d Up, designed to reward and incentivize dealers for growth and diversification. In-person attendance for the event included 137 dealers, leasing partners, press and Konica Minolta staff, with an additional 378 logging in to join the event virtually.
The dealer awards were based on growth rates from 2020-2021 and included two winners in each of three categories – total revenue, production print and industrial print (PPIP) and digital transformation (DX). A Dealer Excellence award recognized both growth and total revenue, and a Rising Star was acknowledged for top growth.
“The disruptions to our business during this time made us rethink our award criteria, ultimately altering our formula to create brand new awards that reflected the evolving landscape,” said Laura Blackmer, president, Dealer Sales, Konica Minolta. “The resiliency of our dealers throughout the last two years was extraordinary and we are so proud of the success they have seen despite ongoing, unprecedented challenges.”
