Just weeks after scooping the German Audiologist of the Year title, Benjamin Schadow from Erfurt, Germany has been named The European Audiologist of the Year (AOTY) 2018.
The Audiologist of the Year is a competition which is run in partnership with individual members of the hearing instrument industry together with the European Hearing Instrument Manufacturers Association (EHIMA) and the European Federation of Hard of Hearing People (EFHOH).
A winner is selected in September from each of the participating countries, with one of these going on to be crowned as the European champion. An independent panel of industry professionals reviewed and judged the anonymous entries for the title.
Collecting his award, Benjamin Schadow said: “I’m honoured to have won the European Audiologist of the Year Award and am proud to accept it on behalf of my whole team."
“These awards are extra special as they are nominated by patients and I’m delighted to hear that they feel that the way we listen to their needs and continuously strive to innovate is making a difference to their lives.”
Competition judge Stefan Zimmer, Secretary General for EHIMA, said: “We are proud to be part of a competition that brings so many professionals from the industry together to recognise their life-changing accomplishments.”
Other national winners who were in the running for the European title were:
Bridgitte Harley, UK.
Julien Benoist, France.
Wilgis Schoffelmeijer, Netherlands.
Myriam González Maycas, Spain.
