The Procter & Gamble Company recognized its top performing external business partners during an awards ceremony last night at its Business Partner Recognition Dinner. The objective of the annual event is to recognize and celebrate those key contributors who have demonstrated partner excellence. This year about 80 supplier and agency partners were represented at the awards dinner.
Pegas Nonwovens received one of just 12 Business Partner of the Year awards from Procter & Gamble for the second year running.
As the largest producer and seller of consumer goods in the world P&G deals with around 75,000 suppliers worldwide, making the achievement particularly notable.
“We have an outstanding long-term business relationship with Procter & Gamble,” says František Řezáč, Pegas CEO. “It gives us great pleasure to have received these awards from this respected international company, and we are justifiably proud of them.”
"I congratulate all of our award winners, especially those who were recognized as a Business Partner of the Year," says Rick Hughes, chief purchasing officer for P&G. "Our external business partners are an important part of the company's ability to innovate and grow, and critical to the work we do at P&G every day. Every consumer who uses a P&G brand benefits from these relationships, which enhance our ability to fulfill our Purpose of touching and improving consumers' lives."
