Austin, TX - Jason Simoneau, Director of Passives at Digi-Key, was presented with the 2015 Executive Partnership Award at the annual EDS Leadership Summit earlier this May. The award honors Simoneau and his team for their overall commitment to their customers and recognizes the key role they have played in the continuing relationship with Abracon.

The award is presented to an individual who most closely aligns with Abracon’s guiding principles of prompt and diligent customer service, technical expertise, and high levels of integrity that build value with customers. Coupled with effective asset management practices and a committed strategy of investment in Abracon inventory, these qualities help customers get to market quickly and meet their design cycle objectives. As a result, Simoneau’s work achieved new heights for quality of service in 2015.

“Jason Simoneau has been highly influential in developing a successful relationship with Abracon throughout the years. Meeting the product availability demands of distribution customers requires continuous investment and committed attention to inventory planning. Simoneau’s bullish approach has served his customers well, resulting in high growth for Abracon and Digi-key,” said Chris Polley, Abracon Chief Executive Officer.

Tom Busher, Vice President of IP&E at Digi-Key Electronics, has worked with Simoneau and his colleagues for several years and recognizes Simoneau as a strong team lead, “We are very proud of Jason for being recognized by Abracon for his contribution and dedication to reaching the mutual goals and successes of both companies. We truly appreciate the willingness and commitment from the Abracon team to work closely with us in maintaining and growing our successful and valued partnership. We look forward to continue the realization of exceptional results in the future.”
