Several England Furniture sales representatives were recently recognized for their performance during the 2014 fiscal year at the October International Furniture Market in High Point. Recipients of the various England Furniture Sales Awards were determined by such measurable criteria as sales volume, territory GP, and change from the previous reporting period. Other factors that were often considered included the ability to resolve dealer issues, demonstration of a positive work ethic, and other less-definable gauges.
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 customer. “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.”
In addition to the regular sales awards, England Furniture also annually awards one individual in their sales force who best exemplifies the values held by England Furniture founder, Arnold Dwight England. The award, the “Mr. D Award,” is arguably the most coveted honor presented each year. On occasion a Trailblazer Award is also awarded to one individual whose was able to grow in his/her territory despite challenging circumstances. This year this amazing award went to our Northern California representative.
