Royal award for DEIF distributor
DEIF’s distributor in Russia, DVK Electro, wins the Diploma of the Danish Export Association & HRH Prince Henrik's Medal of Honour for an outstanding job at promoting Danish products and services abroad.
Celebrating 20 years of cooperation this year, DEIF’s longstanding distributor in Russia, Mr. Alexander Duksin, owner of DVK Electro in St. Petersburg, has been awarded the Diploma of the Danish Export Association & HRH Prince Henrik's Medal of Honour. Both are awarded to companies or persons that have done an outstanding job at promoting Danish products and services abroad.
The diploma and medal were handed over to Mr. Duksin on 19 September 2017 at a ceremony held on the opening day of NEVA 2017 – the 14th International Maritime Exhibition and Conferences of Russia in St. Petersburg – at DVK’s stand exclusively promoting DEIF solutions. In the presence of numerous Russian VIP invites and sales representatives from the exhibitors at the Danish Pavilion, Toke Foss (owner & CEO of DEIF) and Mark Lerche (Head of the Danish Marine Group at the Danish Export Association) gave personal speeches before the diploma and medal were handed over to Mr. Duksin by Mr. Jens Jungersen Thomsen, the Consul General of Denmark in St. Petersburg.
"I met Alexander for the first time in 1997 at the NEVA exhibition. We soon realised that our perception of business ethics and values matched out, and by the end of 1997 we signed an official distributor agreement. Since then, our cooperation has been impeccable, and Alexander has managed to consistently grow our business on the Russian market, and today he stands out as one of DEIF’s most treasured distributors."Per Svenning |
