Puma Energy, a global integrated mid and downstream energy company, has rewarded a number of its service station dealers at its annual 2018 Retail Conference and Awards held in Elmina in the Central Region.
Mr. Hamidu Mohammed, a dealer managing 3 Puma Energy service stations in the Ashanti Region, emerged on top as the best-performing dealer during the 2017 year under review.
His citation read: “Hamidu Mohammed, you are a very resilient and dedicated dealer. You have shown extreme dedication and positivity towards the growth of your business and the
Puma Energy brand as a whole. You have contributed vastly to our total volumes and have recorded zero instances of dumping third party products since you started operating.
Hamidu, you have displayed extreme levels of allegiance and discipline which has positively affected growth in our retail network.
“Puma Energy acknowledges you, Mr Hamidu Mohammed, for your great accomplishments. Keep up the good work. Ayekoo!” the citation read.
In addition to his citation, he received a crystal plaque and an amount of US$5,000.00 to thank him for his hard work. Receiving his award, Mr. Mohammed had the following to say: “I am so grateful to Puma Energy for this award and recognition. In fact, I never imagined that the prize would be accompanied by US$5,000! This is an honour and I am humbled,” said Hamidu, flanked by his wife.
Speaking at the awards night, the Managing Director for Puma Energy Distribution Ghana Limited, Mr. Myles Bouvier-Baird, commended all dealers for their dedication to contributing to the growth of the Puma Energy brand in Ghana.
“We are proud to have you on board as our partners. With you, the Puma Energy retail network is growing steadily, and we acknowledge your contribution to the business. Let us however not rest on our laurels, but strive to achieve even more. The sky is the limit,” said Mr. Bouvier-Baird.
The Retail Manager for Ghana, Mr. Andrews Wiafe, highlighted the challenging nature of the business, making the achievements of the winners all the more commendable.
“While we are all here to celebrate, it is important that we reward those that have gone above and beyond to move the business forward. This is not an easy business, but you have demonstrated that it is possible to succeed. This should serve as a motivator for those who did not receive awards this year to put in even more hard work to win even bigger, better awards next year,” said Mr. Wiafe.
The awards night was part of an annual Retail Conference weekend organised by Puma Energy. Themed “Quality Fuel, Quality Service, Quality Standards”, the conference brought together the largest number of dealers to date, along with a number of station managers, the retail team, leadership team and key support functions to the retail outfit.
