OTIS Eyewear was presented with their award at the Australian Surf & Boardsports Industry Association Awards
OTIS Eyewear was honored to be awarded the 2016 Sunglass of the Year Award at the Australian Surf & Boardsports Industry Association (“SBIA”) Awards on Thursday night. The SBIA Awards night recognizes the best in the industry by identifying key performing products that are standouts in their respective categories. These products are nominated and presented for voting on by both Retailers and Consumers to determine the product of the year. In what was a very competitive category that included styles from Oakley, Dragon and Electric, the OTIS Youngblood came out on top, backing up its previous runner up award and reinforcing OTIS’ position as a leading premium eyewear brand.
Tom Sullivan, General Manager Australia of The Leisure Collective, owner of the OTIS Eyewear brand, was on hand to receive the award. “It is great recognition for all the hard work that goes into creating a great brand with amazing products. We are really happy with how the brand is performing and really appreciative of the amazing support we have from our retailers. The brand has been around for sixteen years now and has been consistently growing at over 20% per year in the last few. OTIS is going from strength to strength, we’re managing our distribution really well and our retail partners are stoked. We’re excited about the future.”
