The Best Taiwan Global Brands awards are organized by the Industrial Development Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Taiwan and implemented by Interbrand Consultancy. The annual survey recognizes 20 winners each year across an array of industries in Taiwan, and it is conducted using Interbrand’s established brand valuation methodology, identifying the world’s top 100 global brands.

Following a rebranding announced in September 2016, Zyxel now identifies itself as “Your Networking Ally” who provides innovative and customer-centric networking solutions to help people achieve their goals and change the world for the better.

“The award couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Gordon Yang, president of Zyxel. “We’re going through the biggest transformation in Zyxel’s history. Over the past 18 months, we organized a series of workshops and boot camps worldwide. Every Zyxel member is involved, committed, and inspired by the new brand purpose. The holistic internal engagement has pulled together the team power we need to deliver on our promises and inspire our customers at every touch point.”

The young, energetic new brand image has caused an online sensation and contributed to a 113.8% increase in website traffic from social media sites to the Zyxel website.
