Excellence In Sales Award 2009
Since 2000, Repertoire and HIDA have recognized outstanding sales achievement with the Excellence in Sales Award. Representative of the spirit of the award are these comments from a nomination for this year’s distributor-rep winner, Rich Bilz: “I asked one of his good customers why he does business with Rich. His reply was that Rich always takes care of them. He brings in new ideas for revenue-generation along with finding ways to give them options on saving money on supplies …. He goes the extra mile for his customers.” Join us in recognizing this year’s winners.
