Willsmer Wagg Ltd kicks off 20th year celebrations by thanking key partners with an afternoon tea presentation and gala dinner

Willsmer Wagg Ltd are proud to announce we are now entering our 20th year in business, and to kick off our year of celebrations we invited some of our longest-standing key supplier partners to celebrate with us on Thursday 22nd November 2018.

It was important to Debbie Willsmer MD, and all the team at Willsmer Wagg, to invite our key partners to celebrate with us, in order to thank them for all their support over the years; they share our vision and commitment to excellence, and we know we couldn’t have done it without them. Unfortunately, we couldn’t invite everyone who has supported us over the years, so a small group of our key supplier partners were invited:
• Lawrence Angelow – The Advantage Group
• Nicola Durant – Senator Pens
• Rob Durant – PF Concept
• Simone Veasey & Phil Roberts – Fanela
• Matt Pluckrose – Desktop Ideas
• Mandy Hastie – The Sweet People
• Jason Grenham – Sourcing City
• Daniela Arena – British Promotional Merchandise Association
• Gareth Sumner-Jones & Ross Barker – The Fulfilment People
• Brian Young & Stephen Fowler – Castelli
• Sim Shalom – A T Promotions T/A Listawood
• Vivienne Blumfield – Industry Guru
• Paul Maye – Xindao
• Maureen Wilson – The Bizz Badge Company
• Peter Lewis – Tax Assist Accountants

These key partners were invited to an afternoon tea and presentation at our Head Office in Worthing, West Sussex. After the delicious tea, Lawrence Angelow of the Advantage Group gave a heartfelt speech on the history of the company and Debbie’s hard work over the years, highlighting the strength of our company, the awards we have won, and our fantastic reputation within the industry. Debbie Willsmer then introduced the members of our team and thanked those in attendance for their valued support.

Account Directors Lesley Levi and Becky Gregory then gave a presentation highlighting how the key partners had worked with us to help win major new business and contracts, showing that their hard work and excellent support services have so much value and are key to winning business for us all. The presentation also highlighted how they can continue to work in partnership with us, giving them an insight into how we differentiate ourselves from other distributors.

The afternoon was followed by an evening of celebration with a gala dinner at local Italian restaurant, AQUA. The evening was designed to give recognition and thanks to our key partners, all of who were all presented with a personalised Award Certificate featuring Worthing Pier by a local artist.

Some suppliers who attended the event commented:

Sim Shalom from Listawood said:
“Great to the see the team and learn more about how you differentiate what you do. The obvious enthusiasm and professionalism came across in waves”

Jason Grenham from Sourcing City said:
“A massive thank you to the team for a great presentation and evening, congratulations on achieving 20 years”

Daniela Arena from BPMA said:
“A fantastic day and evening, so lovely to see you reward, recognise and appreciate our suppliers. Everyone has such good things to say about today”

Phil Roberts and Simone Veasy from Fanela said:
“We are so proud to have been a part of what you have achieved over 20 years. It is a privilege and a pleasure to work with the team”

Matt Pluckrose from Desktop ideas said:
“To be honest, dealing with Willsmer Wagg is not like any standard client relationship it is more like working with friends”

Our MD Debbie Willsmer said:
“We would like to thank all of our key supplier partners who have supported us over the last 20 years, unfortunately we couldn’t invite them all to the event, but I would like to personally say a big thank you to everyone we have worked with, and we look forward to continuing our close working partnerships.

So, what of the future? The company is committed to sustained growth and securing additional blue-chip clientele. We have recently launched our new B2B division, Wow Hampers (wowhampers.com) which is already securing meaningful business, and myself and the team will be launching Willsmer Wagg into 2019 with an all action sales plan!”
