Master Group wins Fujitsu distribution award

Fujitsu’s 2019 National Distributor Conference in Palm Springs, Calif, opened with a traditional Japanese sake barrel ceremony, or Kagami Biraki, led by Matt Peterson, president and COO (left foreground) and Tomokazu Hosoi, vice-president of Business Development (right foreground).
The Master Group took home a prize from Fujitsu General America’s third annual national distributor conference in Palm Springs, Calif. Approximately 250 reps and wholesalers attended the September event, which was held at the La Quinta Resort & Club.

Quebec-headquartered Master Group was awarded the Halcyon Distributor of the Year award.

“This event provides face time with our best reps and distributors to discuss important issues,” said Andy Armstrong, vice-president of sales and marketing at the event’s close. “What are our biggest challenges? What have we done well in the past year? What’s coming in 2020? The response and enthusiasm were fantastic.”

Jeep tours throughout the desert were provided for attendees that opted not to golf or relax poolside. The final evening included a party and the awards ceremony. Two cigar rollers, a Marilyn Monroe impersonator and a mind-reading mentalist from New York provided ambiance, entertainment and astonishment.

“Everyone is happy with the new initiatives we launched over the past year, from cost reduction to new tools on the service side,” said Victor Gomez, vice-president of Operations. “We are doing our best to live up to our motto: Easier to do business with.”
