GLEN RAVEN, N.C. -- Retractable awnings manufacturer Solair Shade Solutions recently recognized sales team members for their hard work and dedication in helping to expand the brand's presence into more than 170 patio retail stores. Individual team members were presented awards during the Solair sales meeting held prior to the International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market in Chicago.
In 2012, Solair experienced impressive growth in territory and overall sales thanks to the innovative sales approach executed by the sales teams, according to a company release. During the sales meeting held in September, Solair celebrated growth, planned for future needs and awarded outstanding team members with titles including Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Territory Expansion Expert and the Most Improved Player.
"This has been an exciting year for Solair, both in sales growth and overall brand recognition," said Rett Haigler, manager of Solair. "Without the dedicated support of our individual team members, the brand would not continue to flourish within the industry as it has. We are pleased to recognize our representatives for their achievements and look forward to continued growth as we implement further programs to help make selling awnings both rewarding and simple."
Of those awarded, Paul Geiseman earned both the Triple Crown and Most Valuable Player awards for the highest overall sales and awning unit sales between June and September 2012. The Territory Expansion Expert award was presented to Wes Reyher for achieving the most new stores signed during the 2012 year, while Marsha and Morgan Curry shared Rookie of the Year honors, awarded for the most units sold by a new representative. With the largest percentage increase of unit volume from 2011 to 2012, the Most Improved Player was awarded to Fred and Eric Gilbert.
