Showcase your SAM program alongside the best in the world

Each year the SAMA Excellence Awards™ honor companies for outstanding achievement in strategic customer relationship management. The awards establish a global standard of excellence for both individual strategic account managers and overall SAM programs, with recent past winners comprising a who’s who of B2B titans.

Winners will be honored at SAMA’s Pan-European Conference (14-15 March, Amsterdam) and Annual Conference (May 20-22, Orlando, Fla.). Why take the time to submit for the 2019 Excellence Awards?


“I was proud to be part of a team at Zurich Insurance that earned recognition for 'Outstanding Mature Program of the Year' in 2016, and the recognition reverberated through the C-suite -- so much so that our CEO highlighted the award in his annual presentation to investors.”

-- Ron Davis, EVP, Head of Customer Management, Zurich

“Adobe was honored to receive a SAMA Excellence Award for 'Outstanding Young Program of the Year' in 2017. We widely promote this award, both internally and externally, to demonstrate our leadership in SAM and our association with SAMA.”

-- Robin Tobin, Head, Strategic Accounts Marketing, Adobe

“We want to make sure that not only the rest of our organization knows about our two 2018 Excellence Awards, but it’s also a great demonstration to our clients in the marketplace to say, 'Rest assured. You’re getting leading technology by working with Arcadis, but you’re also getting leading client experience.'

-- Jim Ford, Global Head of Client Development, Arcadis
