Webster, NY (April 14 2009)--Ashly Audio has announced the winners of its 2008 rep awards.
The awards are handed out for what the company says is "hard work, dedication, innovation and perseverance. The winners' combined levels of expertise led to increased sales throughout North America during one of the most turbulent economic times."
For growing business, exceeding quotas and maintaining model communication, Eakins/Bernstein & Associates received the "Representative of the Year" award. Based in Lenexa, KS, Eakins/Bernstein & Associates' region spans Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, southern Illinois and Missouri.
Norwalk, CT's Benchmark Audio Sales earned the "Most Improved Territory" award for delivering the biggest improvement over 2007 sales in its territory of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Covering upstate New York, Binghamton-based Eaton Sales secured the "Quota Buster" award for consistently surpassing quota.
"We are immensely proud of the representatives that we partner with," states Tom Knesel, Ashly's national sales manager. "They share the same dedication to offering end-users top-notch performance at reasonable prices that has driven Ashly Audio over its 35-year history. This year's winners are clearly standouts among standouts."
In addition, Ashly presented four representatives with the "Partners in Growth" award for growing business over 2007 levels. The winners were New Jersey's John B. Anthony Company, Washington's Vector Corporation, Colorado's Pearson & Pearson Marketing, and Florida's Sound Vision Marketing.
