Konica Minolta announced its FY22 dealer award winners, recognizing the many accomplishments during the company’s 2022 fiscal year (April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2023).
The awards were announced on Wednesday, June 28 during Konica Minolta’s FY23 Top 25 Dealer Event in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Together, the company’s leadership and dealer members celebrated 700 total years of partnerships and recognized an exceptional group of dealers for their outstanding FY2023 performance to date, all while enjoying stellar views provided by the beach setting. Dealers enjoyed a beautiful day on the renowned golf course, Harbour Town Golf Links, and an amazing dinner overlooking the beautiful white sand beaches of Hilton Head.
The 2023 Dealer Summit attendees included dealers and Konica Minolta’s Executive Team in addition to key thought leader West MacDonald, who shared key insights and guidance for dealers regarding the explosion of AI in their business. The General Session detailed Konica Minolta’s FY22 and FY23 Q1 business performance, along with an update on the key strategies for FY23 and opportunities for dealers. Per Laura Blackmer, president, Dealer Sales, Konica Minolta, the business disruptions and challenges created during a historic pandemic required the company to rethink the best way to evaluate and reward dealer performance, resulting in key strategies and improvements to Konica Minolta’s Dealer Performance Program, REV’d UP.
The REV’d UP performance program is designed to reward and incentivize dealers for diversifying their portfolio to build stronger, future-focused businesses. The awards presented at the 2023 Dealer Summit event reflected the growth rates and revenues dealers achieved in FY22.
