Nikon recognizes top salesmen

anikonNikon Sport Optics has announced the winners of its 2013 Sales Awards, and friend of LSON David Deveny of Owens Outdoor Sales in Boerne took home one of the coveted prizes.

These awards are chosen by taking into consideration sales number increases, but also factor in unique aspects of a representative’s given territory and the efforts they put forth.

Salesman of the Year is based on the best percentage of dollar increase among all of the representatives, while the Rep Group of the Year takes the best increase from a group perspective.

The Winners are as follows:

Salesman of the Year — Randy Hughes, Odle and Associates
Rep Group of the Year — Odle and Associates
Rookie of the Year — Trevor Hintz, Mitch Beene and Associates

The Elite Salesmen are:

David Deveny, Owens Outdoor Sales
Scott Odle, Odle and Associates
Joe Palermo, Professional Marketing Inc.
Curtis Smith, Odle and Associates
Rocky Stewart, Gowen and Sons

“Nikon chooses their top reward recipients using a selection criteria way beyond sales increases,” said Randy Garrison, Senior National Sales & Marketing Manager for Nikon. “While sales increases are taken into consideration we look for the groups and individuals that truly represent the core characteristics that make them an important business partner to our customers. Their overall efforts in planning, execution, analysis and follow through are the components which separate Nikon salesmen from the rest and what we look for in our final criteria selection. I am proud to say that in 2012 these salesmen exceeded expectations, and with that, also exceed their sales goals significantly.”
