In announcing this year’s inductees into the CE Hall of Fame, CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro said this about the group, which includes Bjorn Dybdahl, founder of Bjorn’s. “This elite group of leaders has laid the foundation that our industry continues to build upon. Their vision, drive to excel and enthusiasm have helped to create the innovative CE products and services that have improved the lives of consumers worldwide.” The statement nicely captures the passion Dybdahl brings to his customers through Bjorn’s. Ee couldn’t agree more.
“NewEgg.com’s ‘Take it from a Geek’ campaign turned NewEgg’s geek fans and community into brand ambassadors. The campaign was used throughout the busy back-to-school and holiday seasons, successfully elevating awareness of the NewEgg brand and largely contributing to the company increasing new visitor traffic by nearly 20% in 2011.”
Once again, congratulations to this year’s Retail Excellence Award winners!
