Sam Ash Music extends its gratitude to the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) for recognizing its online sales efforts and awarding Sam Ash the distinction of Best Online Presentation at the fourth annual NAMM Top 100 Dealer Award ceremony at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, Tennessee on July 18. Sammy Ash, COO of Sam Ash Music and third-generation co-owner of Sam Ash Music Corp. received the award on behalf of the company.

“Our marketing team is made up of a highly creative group of life-long musicians who know what musicians want,” said Ash. “They are dedicated to this business and to this life of musical pursuit and it shows in their work every day. I’m very happy for them and I’m thankful to the NAMM judges for recognizing their talent.”

NAMM Top 100 retailers are judged using a numeric rating by a panel of impartial expert judges selected by, but not otherwise affiliated with NAMM, according to the official NAMM web site. Honors are given for a number of categories, including Best Exterior Presentation, Best Merchandising Display, Best Marketing and Sales Promotion, Best Online Presentation, Dealer of the Year, and awards for musical education advocacy.

“We look to the Dealer of the Year Award and Top 100 Award winners as a source of inspiration for our industry,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM, in a press release distributed by NAMM. “These are the NAMM Members devoted to enriching their communities with music.”
