SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT: Everyone walking out richer than when they came in for Digicel's resellers prize giving.

The season of prizegivings may be over but not for these thirty lucky recipients.

Yesterday, Digicel rewarded its top 30 resellers from their Digicel Resellers Promotion which ran from October to December 2016 

The company unleashed a whopping $20,000 prize pool, becoming the largest Reseller’s Prize Draw ever.

Business men and women who own shops across Upolu and Savai’i gathered excitedly for the grand event.  

The top 10 resellers received $1,000 while a further pool of 20 winners received $500.  

The prize giving also honoured the ongoing partnership with Oceanic Communications Limited (OCL), Digicel’s distributer in Samoa.

Digicel’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Li’omatua Waikato Lefale, said the resellers are the heart of Digicel’s business. 

“O.C.L and our resellers are a big part of the success that Digicel has enjoyed.  As such, we wanted to acknowledge their hard work, loyalty and support with a small token of our appreciation.” 

He also laid down a challenge for more re-sellers to join in on the competition as many of the top prize winners were annual fixtures in the competition.  

 Also present for the event was Digicel’s new Chief Executive Officer, Milos Surla.  

Since arriving Sunday, yesterday was his first public event.

Mr. Surla, who has taken over from Rori Condon who resigned last year, is originally from Croatia. He congratulated the prize winners.
