‘One Team’ in New Zealand

Imperial Tobacco New Zealand (ITNZ) has been commended by a major trade partner for its levels of professionalism and support.

ITNZ received the ‘One Team’ award at BP’s annual supplier day in Auckland. Honours were presented in a total of five categories, each aligned with one of BP’s values.

Earlier this year, an enhanced retail display plan for our brands, drawn up to reflect new trading terms with BP, was implemented by Imperial’s sales team throughout New Zealand.

The award was presented by Frank van Hattum, BP General Manager Retail Ops, who said: “Imperial has invested the time and effort to understand the total business impact of its decisions.

“Their responsiveness and assistance is one of the best we have seen, and they delivered well ahead of schedule”.

Tim Spiller, BP Account Manager for ITNZ, and Steve O’Brien, National Account Manager, received the award on behalf of Imperial. Steve said: “This award is for the whole of ITNZ and proof that a positive mindset drives success.” Enditem
