Pointe Claire, Canada, July 24, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components with corporate headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, and the company's President, Robert Miller, is pleased to extend special recognition to Sam Abrams, Executive Vice President, with gratitude for his 45 years of service with the company.
Abrams first joined the company after replying to a newspaper ad for a shipper/receiver, when the company was still relatively new. Over the years, the company has grown to be a worldwide leader in the electronics industry, and Abrams' role has evolved as well, from working in the shipping/receiving department, to being an Executive Vice President.
Abrams explained, "I did the math. I have spent 71.4% of my life at Future Electronics. When I first started, we were a small company of less than 10 people in one location and I was privileged to witness the growth to over 5,000 people in offices throughout the world. There were no cell phones, no email; there were not even any electronic calculators. It was the beginning of a new age, the age of electronics. All of the electronic gadgets that we have today and take for granted, were the result of a new and extremely fast paced industry, of which Future played a major role in its development."
He continued, "This was not just a job for me nor was it even a career. I became part of a family, the Future family. I am very proud of this company and all it has done, not only as a thriving business and a unique success story in our industry, but also how well it has nourished and developed a team of dedicated souls who are amongst the best in the industry. Future Electronics is a company with a major asset, its team of people. The thing that I most enjoy at Future is interfacing with our team. We are a very diverse group of people but we all get along for the sole purpose of getting the job done. I am extremely proud of our team of individuals that come together for the common cause of continuing to drive the company to new heights."
Abrams extols the vision and many virtues of the company's founder, President and CEO, saying, "The credit belongs to Robert Miller, whose leadership since day one has been a tremendous source of motivation and inspiration to all who work here, not to mention the great respect and adulation he gets from our suppliers and our customers. Robert Miller is Future Electronics. As we move forward, onward and upward, and the next generation of Millers are poised to continue to guide the company as their father did before them. We must continue to support the legacy of Future Electronics, remember where we have been and drive towards an even greater and more promising future."
The Founder and President of Future Electronics, Robert Miller, often refers to employees as being "the company's greatest asset." Many people have been with the organization for a long time, and milestone anniversaries are recognized with personalized cards, plaques, free meal vouchers, and other gifts based on their length of tenure.
