Every week we will bring you the thoughts of a former winner of one of our awards about why they applied, what the application process did for them and what being a BIBAs winner means to them. Here we hear from Peter Thompson, International Division Manager, Evans Vanodine – winner of the Exporter of the Year Award at the BIBAs 2015.
“The process of entering, interviewing and eventually winning a BIBA is a familiar one for Evans Vanodine, as we had already won the Exporter of the Year Award when we entered again in 2015.
“Our ambition was clear, we wanted to win our third BIBA for export and therefore confirm we were still operating at the highest standard in the region.
“I passed the interview stage of the BIBAs on to my sales manager as I wanted him to gain experience of what was ultimately a rigorous process.
“The experience of Evans Vanodine with the BIBAs has ultimately been a positive one and one from which we have gained a great deal.”
