Mark Burr-Lonnon, Mouser’s Senior Vice President of Global Service & EMEA and APAC Business, was presented with the award at a glittering ceremony held December 6 in London’s Grosvenor House Hotel. After the ceremony, Burr-Lonnon commented, “I am delighted that Mouser has been named Distributor of the Year, especially given the prestigious companies we found ourselves sharing the shortlist with. In 2017, we continued our mission of providing the very best and latest new product introductions from leading global manufacturers to design engineers, and expanded the services, tools and resources available on Mouser.com for the global design community.”

This award demonstrates the commitment to teamwork shown by all our staff members in Europe and their ability to deliver best-in-class customer service.”
