Andrew Glass - UK sales director, Samsung
The affable industry face of Samsung, Glass continues to impress the trade with his attitude, collaborative spirit and ability to get things done. ‘Andrew is a power player,’ said one trading partner. ‘He is highly respected by the industry and has taken on the commercial direction of Samsung very successfully.’
A cynic could argue that selling the highest profile handsets in the market with a seemingly unlimited budget is a no brainer. Not so, argue retailers, who point out Glass has played a critical role in turning around its tablet sales, arguably the one area where the manufacturer has not been punching its weight. ‘He is strong in retail and works very well with Samsung’s partners,’ says one trade expert.
