The ACE Press Awards are the highest accolade in British publishing and circulation. It’s an opportunity for those in the newspaper and magazine industry to gain recognition for their hard work and determination for success. Some of the most inspiring and driven circulation directors and executives judged this year’s award applications.
Simon Gage, Smiths News Sales Director was delighted to accept the award on behalf of Smiths News at the Awards Ceremony which was held at The Royal Garden Hotel in London.
Jonathan Bunting, Smiths News’ Managing Director, who was present at the Awards, said:
“I’m thrilled that we’ve won Gold. Last year we won the Silver award for our sales-based replenishment service and I’m delighted that we got Gold this year. The award is testament to all of the hard work which everyone put in in preparation for and during the Olympic and Paralympic Games."
"As well as gaining excellent sales results, we had to overcome many operational challenges to maintain our customer service levels and ensure supplies were delivered to our retailers on time. Therefore, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was involved.”
