England Furniture held their Sales Representative Meeting during the recent 2014 October International Furniture Market in High Point. Several England Furniture representatives were recognized for their performance during the 2014 fiscal year at the event. Some of the many factors that contributed to receiving the England Furniture Sales Awards included measurable criteria such as sales volume, change from the previous reporting period and territory GP. Other factors could including positive work ethic, ability to resolve dealer issues, and other less-definable gauges.
“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.”
England Furniture is fortunate to have an excellent group of women and men who are dedicated to being the professional connection between the England Furniture factory and England Furniture customers. In addition to the terrritory-centered sales awards, England Furniture also identifies the one individual in their sales force who most exemplifies the values held by England Furniture founder, Arnold Dwight England. Called the “Mr. D Award,” award, this prize is arguably the most coveted award presented each October.
On occasion a Trailblazer Award is also presented. This award acknowledges the efforts of a sales representative who was able to grow in a territory despite challenging circumstances. This year’s award went to our England Furniture Northern California representative and it recongized her determination in increasing the California market.
