Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), took home three Frank Awards at The Cannata Report’s 34th Annual Awards & Charities Dinner, including the Best Manufacturer and Best-in-Class awards and the Best Male Executive honour for Mike Marusic, President and CEO of SIICA.
Sharp joined Konica Minolta who was also honoured with three awards by The Cannata Report, Awards including Best Marketing Strategy, Best Production Print Manufacturer and Best Female Executive.
The Frank Awards honour business leaders from the manufacturer, financing, and software and services segments of the imaging industry. The winners are determined by The Cannata Report’s Annual Dealer Survey, which gathers the views of the dealer community on a number of topics that are important to their businesses. Sharp took home several key awards including:
Best-in-Class, which recognises the wonderful support and value adds that Sharp offers to its dealers. Best Manufacturer, which recognises the outstanding portfolio of products and services for the dealer community. Best Male Executive, which recognises Mike Marusic’s work to enhance business processes in the industry since becoming president and CEO of Sharp’s U.S. B2B business in 2018.
“Readers of The Cannata Report recognized Sharp for its achievements in providing independent dealers with innovative products and leadership that enable them to meet the technology needs of their customers while also fostering a strong, positive relationship with Sharp, their channel partner,” said CJ Cannata, CEO and President, The Cannata Report.
“It is a great honour to be recognised by the document imaging dealer community for our efforts. The Cannata Report Survey and resulting awards are a prestigious recognition of how the U.S. dealer community views Sharp,” said Ted Kawamura, CEO Americas and Chairman of Sharp Electronics Corporation in the U.S. “We are so proud of our team and the work they consistently deliver to achieve these results, and we are delighted to be honoured as a company that is leading the way for the future of the document management industry.”
In addition to the announcement of the Frank Award winners, the event, held at The Madison Hotel in Morristown, N.J., on 7 November 2019, raised $295,000 (€266,655) for Tackle Kids Cancer, a philanthropic program benefiting the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack Meridian Health.
