Pavels Spiridovskis from Latvia won the Exporter of the Year — Male nomination. He is the CEO of Parts oe245 which sells original parts for German cars. His business started with one tiny office and a handful of employees, but now they ship over 500 items around the world daily.
The Best customer service is provided to buyers by Kristina Stankevice from Lithuania, a customer support specialist at Kickz Boutique.
