RadioTrade receives Motorola Solutions’ Empower Circle accolade for third year running
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

RadioTrade has been named a Motorola Solutions “Empower Circle” winner for 2018 and for the third consecutive year. The honour recognises Motorola’s channel partners for sales performance and customer service and to qualify partners had to achieve either the greatest year-on-year (YoY) growth in revenue or highest overall revenue within their peer group.

RadioTrade qualified due to achieving the greatest YoY increase in revenue (nearly 70 per cent) in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and despite the company only selling into the UK and Ireland. This was entirely organic growth (i.e. not generated by acquisitions). The distributor was one of only 50 of Motorola Solutions’ 7,500 channel partners around the world to receive Empower Circle recognition.

"The news of our Motorola Solutions’ Empower Award for 2018 was the ‘icing on the cake’ for what has been an exceptional year for RadioTrade. With nearly 70 per cent growth over 2017, the team has worked extremely hard and we now sit as one of the largest distributors for Motorola across EMEA. To win this Empower award for three years in a row is something of which we are extremely proud. Of course, our growth would not be possible without great partners and together we will work hard for a very prosperous 2019," said Richard Searle, managing director of RadioTrade Ltd.

A RadioTrade spokesperson added that the company has created additional programmes and functionality within the marketplace that support its partners with areas such as technical support, Empower Program support, marketing and the company’s training programme. “In addition, we offer our partners innovative and unique products and promotions to differentiate themselves. We focus on helping our partners to create incremental business, supporting them to develop their skills, technical capabilities, marketing and product offering,” they said.

“Motorola Solutions Empower Circle Awards recognise our best sales partners in 2018 for their dedication, performance and commitment to excellence in customer service”, said Vivienne Francis, vice president, EMEA channel at Motorola Solutions. “Their ability to focus on selling solutions, exceed expectations in our growth markets and drive our expansion portfolio has contributed to their success in being a trusted advisor with our mutual customers.”

Craig Calvert, Motorola's channel sales director for Northern and Middle East regions added: "This time last year I was commenting on the achievement of winning two years in a row – 12 months later we're here again! Winning the largest growth award for a Distributor three years in a row is a remarkable achievement. On behalf of the whole of Motorola Solutions, I would like to offer our congratulations to Richard and the whole team at RadioTrade”.
