Govola has been with Surya for five years and covers the Ohio, western Pennsylvania, upstate New York, and West Virginia territory. After winning the award, Govola said, "I'm not the best ‘salesman' by any means. I work hard to build trust with each of my customers, and I absolutely love what I do."
Building long-term relationships is at the core of both winning representatives' personal mantras and is one of Surya's keys to successful selling.
McNally has been with Surya for three years and covers the Florida territory, specifically focusing on the design services industry. She is now a two-time winner of this award, as she also took home the prize in 2010. "Repeat customers are so important in this business so I always make sure I treat my customers as my friends," McNally said.
Surya President Satya Tiwari presented the awards at a company dinner, held at Steak Street in High Point, N.C. during the fall High Point Market.
Surya also values and rewards those people who embrace the true spirit of Surya with its Ray of Light Award. This year's Ray of Light winner was presented to Jane Reed, a Surya sales representative covering the Minnesota, Wisconsin and North and South Dakota territory. Reed reflects the spirit of Surya because she works hard, is loyal to the brand, caring for her fellow Surya employees and develops long-term client relationships. At Surya, success is defined by relationships, and Reed is dedicated to her clients and her fellow Surya teammates.
"James, Nancy and Jane have a tremendous amount of integrity, and they truly care about their customers and fellow employees," Tiwari said. "Surya is recognized as one of the most progressive companies in the nation, and the competition for these awards is high."
