Big thanks to USU for sponsoring the “Professional of the Year” and to SHI for sponsoring the “Rising Star” Award this year. Prior to Ben van den Bosch being announced as the winner, SHI’s Neil Frodsham explained why the company wished to sponsor this award
“This is without doubt one of the most important awards for this industry. If we’re not investing in the next generation of people, this industry won’t develop. We wanted to be part of this award because we need to bring more talent into this industry.”Neil Frodsham, Global Director of ITAM Services, SHI
Commenting on the awards, Nadine Goldschmitt from USU said:
“It’s great to see how the SAM community has been gaining momentum in new markets. USU sponsors the ITAM Excellence Awards because we are keen to support this practice. To see Abdullah Tutğaç from Turk Telekom receive this recognition is exciting and makes the great work visible that Abdullah with his team, together with Kerim Yüksel from MOS Academy have been doing. Congratulations! This is an impressive achievement.”Nadine Goldschmitt, Team Lead Global Partner Marketing, USU
