Ada, MI (PRWEB) August 29, 2007
In recognition of their support of Quixtar's business model, vendors Eagle Pack Pet Products and Levi Strauss & Co., and Partner Store, Office Depot, have been named Quixtar's 2007 Partners of the Year.
"We believe that successful companies in the future must create partnerships which will drive innovation and growth for the mutual benefit of both," says Mike Sullivan, Director of Catalog, Services, and Partner Stores for Quixtar. "These companies are true partners with Quixtar."
Winners of the Partner of the Year Award were announced during Quixtar's Partner Appreciation Meeting held June 26-27 in Buena Park, Calif. More than 100 of Quixtar's top merchants and suppliers participated in this year's event.
"Office Depot is honored to receive the Partner Store of the Year Award," says Kevin Wierenga, Office Depot Global Business Development Manager. "The award is a result of Quixtar and Office Depot collaborating to bring new ideas to the table while staying focused on the quality of the program. A recent behind-the-scenes tour of the NUTRILITE® product line allowed Office Depot to experience the great story Quixtar has to tell and we are excited to be a part of the opportunity."
"Through our partnership with Quixtar, my team and I have been able to work with some of the finest, nicest people in the industry in terms of professionalism and their willingness to work with us to achieve both company's goals," says Senior Sales Manager Sue Fordon of Levi Strauss & Co. "We have been able to learn much from Quixtar in terms of ways to improve our tools to most effectively reach our audience."
John Hart, CEO of Eagle Pack Pet Foods, says, "We chose to partner with Quixtar because our nutritional philosophies toward pets are very similar to Quixtar's approach to optimal health and wellness through their NUTRILITE brand."
As the online sales leader in health and beauty, Quixtar partners with many e-commerce sites, service companies, and product vendors to diversify its vast offering of consumer merchandise.
