Written by Nikon Sport Optics

Nikon Sport Optics recently recognized its top sales representatives for 2014 during their annual meeting in Las Vegas to kick off the 2015 SHOT Show. 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. This year’s Rep Group of the Year was Owens Outdoor Sales in Boerne. Elite Salesmen must show an increase in sales, but are also chosen based on marketing and promotion efforts within their territories and stores.

“We select our top sales reps by more than just sales increases. We want them to know and understand not only the product, but the Nikon brand, and we also like to receive positive feedback from their customers,” said Randy Garrison, general manager at Nikon. “It’s important the representatives we have in the field truly represent the core characteristics that make them valuable assets to the Nikon family. Their overall efforts in planning, execution, analysis and follow through are the components which separate Nikon salesmen from the rest.”
