Several England Furniture sales representatives were recently recognized for their outstanding performance at the October International Furniture Market in High Point. Recipients of the various 2014 England Furniture Sales Awards were determined by such measurable criteria as sales volume, territory GP, and change from the previous reporting period. Other factors often considered were the ability of reps to resolve dealer issues and demonstration of a positive work ethic.
England Furniture is fortunate to have an excellent group of men and woman who are dedicated to being the professional connection between the England Furniture factory and the retail outlet. “All our reps deserve some level of recognition,” said Otis Sawyer, President of England, “but, when benchmarks are applied, understandably, the ones with the most impressive stats gravitate to the top.”
In addition to the regular sales awards, England Furniture also annually awards one individual in their sales force who best exemplifies the values held by England Furniture founder, Arnold Dwight England. The award, the “Mr. D Award,” is arguably the most coveted plaque presented each year. The Trailblazer Award was also awarded this year. This award recognizes and individuals ability to grow in a territory despite challenging circumstances. This exceptional award went to our Northern California representative.
The 2014 England Furniture Sales Awards were awarded to the following persons:
Cam Morgan, NC (Small Territory)
Josh Weeks, CO and parts of NE and WY (Medium Territory)
Jim Emerson, ND, SD, MN and Northern Iowa (Large Territory)
Phil Johnson, KS and MO and parts of Iowa and Nebraska (“Mr. D” Award)
