Digi-Key Electronics has been awarded 25 recognitions from its suppliers during the 2022 EDS Leadership Summit held last month in Las Vegas.

Additionally, Abracon recognized Jason Simoneau, director of passives, at Digi-Key, with the Americas Executive Partnership Award for 2021.
“We are very pleased to have earned these recognitions from so many of our valued supplier partners,” said David Stein, vice president of global supplier management at Digi-Key. “At Digi-Key, we are redefining what it means to be a high-service distributor and focus on continuous improvement to ensure a positive experience and great results for both our suppliers and customers. We’re grateful to our suppliers for their partnership, and look forward to finding new ways to partner more closely for continued mutual success in the future.”
Digi-Key also hosted its annual EDS Business Update Breakfast, featuring market activity and business updates from Digi-Key president Dave Doherty and vice president of Americas and EMEA business development Ian Wallace. The theme of the presentation was “Successful. Together.” and covered Digi-Key’s performance in 2021 and its continuous investments in its core business, as well as new services and how those capabilities such as Marketplace, e-commerce platforms and logistics services can benefit suppliers.
“At Digi-Key, we’re looking for ways to make the extraordinary, ordinary, and we couldn’t do it without our supplier partners, manufacturing reps, online and media personnel,” Doherty said. “We’re focused on our digital presence, streamlining processes and supporting our customers in order to plan for the next cycle — because in this industry, it’s never a matter of ‘if’ – it’s a matter of ‘when.’”
Jugglers from The Passing Zone provided entertainment during the presentation as well, serving as a perfect metaphor for how the industry has handled the numerous challenges and opportunities presented over the past several years.
