Resellers of all shapes and sizes have made it onto the finalist list for the 2013 Brother/Stationery News
Reseller of the Year Awards.

The 15 finalists were decided by suppliers who nominated up to six resellers via inserted voting forms in Stationery News and online at

This year, the categories have been redefined to reflect the top performers in both metropolitan and regional markets. In previous years, nominated resellers were divided into two categories based on turnover.

The judging criteria remain the same with the winner of each category judged on business profile, marketing, customer service, product range, online offering, employee development, organisational structure, sales and profit growth, business monitoring, inventory management and social responsibility.

The winners will be announced at a special presentation to be held in Sydney on 20 September.
