Kiwi named Konica's best salesman

14 Jun 10

Konica Minolta's New Zealand Account Manager Gavin Bethwaite has been named the company's top global salesperson from over 1000 people across Australia, Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East.

Bethwaite was picked for total colour sales of colour multifunctional printers over the last 12 months. His colleague Daniel Marshall was also named the number two global salesperson.

Konica Minolta General Manager, Warwick Beban, said, “The clients we service, which run the gamut from government agencies to SMEs including large corporates, are looking for a very high quality level in both output and capability. Over the past eight years or so we have developed a major focus on the value of colour in business communications, which is the basis on which these salespeople have been judged globally.

“Gavin and Daniel’s success reflects not only the high standard at which Kiwi businesses are operating, but also our leadership in this area – Konica Minolta dominates the colour market in New Zealand, and continues to demonstrate advancement by international standards. We would like to take some credit for this, but it’s also indicative of New Zealand’s notable leadership in the area of technology adoption and implementation.”
