June Market is a time when we recognize the sales force for their hard work over the past year and this year we are happy to report that many individuals achieved their goals during what continues to be a challenging economic climate. Some of the headliners are featured below:
SALES REPRESENTATIVE OF THE YEAR
Dave Walstad grew up in Vermont where he started in the lighting business working for Vermont Lighting in 1986. He joined Quoizel in 1996 running the Tour de Tiffany road show and then in 1998 he got his own territory representing the state of New Jersey. In 2000, Dave moved to Ohio to cover his existing territory which includes Ohio, Michigan and Western Pennsylvania.
Dave is married to Angela and has two children, Bailey and Dawson. He enjoys the outdoors which includes hunting, fishing and skiing. Dave runs the Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) chapter, a nonprofit organization, that helps feed the hungry in his local community.
He received many awards during the sales banquet that evening and as a close to the night, Brian Slater, 2010 Sales Representative of the Year recipient, passed the ceremonial baton to Dave.
TOP TABLOID SELLER
It was a great night for Dave who also won the award for Top Tabloid Seller.
The Corporate Service Award is presented to the person who embodies the unique value, characteristics and culture of Quoizel. This person understands and supports company initiatives and goals and has a positive and productive work demeanor.
Congratulations to Brad who won the award for 2011.
THE MIKE MCLELLAND CREATIVITY AWARD
Mike McLelland’s true passion was being creative with the tools and products presented to him. This award is given each year to the individual who represents the best creativity on the sales force. Congratulations to Kirk for winning this prestigious award!
Todd joined Quoizel in 1990, left for two brief years in 2004 for Brecher’s Lighting and returned in 2006 to head Quoizel’s retail store, Charleston Lighting Interiors. We are excited to say he has returned to Quoizel’s sales force solidifying the representation of the midwest region of the country.
Congratulations to all of the award recipients!
