|Braun Industries Recognizes Dealer Network Standouts||
So much of our success as an ambulance manufacturer relies on the first-class network of emergency vehicle dealerships that partner with us. Constantly promoting our brand and helping customers select the right Braun ambulance to meet their needs and budget, our dealers mean a lot to us. Each year, we recognize their outstanding contributions at an award ceremony during our Annual Sales Meeting.
This year, the event was held on October 10, 2012. The close to a great 3 day session, we had a vendor reception with hors d’oeuvres, the awards presentation and a dinner. Dressed in their finest, our dealer network gathered with Braun management to honor the best among the group and celebrate their achievements.
Each year, we ask our dealer sales representatives to commit to a number of emergency vehicles they will sell during the next model year. If a representative meets or exceeds this number, they are honored as a Commitment Winner. This year’s Commitment Winners include: Cindy Morgan of Ten-8 Fire Equipment, Pete Caliendo of All Area Fire & Rescue, Rick Bell of Life Star Rescue, Bob Reilly of North Eastern Rescue Vehicles, Andy Heimerl of North Central Ambulance Sales, Mike Bowman of Penn Care, and Kevin Hergott of Fireguard.
Our MY2012 Sales Champions award showcases the sales representatives that sold the most emergency vehicles in their region. Our Region 1 winner is Bob Reilly of North Eastern Rescue Vehicles. Region 2 is Rick Bell of Life Star Rescue. Lastly, Region 3 was presented to Tim Hutchens of Lone Star Emergency Vehicles.
The Gold Dealer Award is given to our dealerships that achieve or surpass their sales goal for the year. MY2012 winners include: North Eastern Rescue Vehicles, Autotronics, All Area Fire & Rescue, Ten-8 Fire Equipment, Penn Care, and North Central Ambulance Sales.
Our Dealer of the Year is Penn Care. Penn Care had the highest sales volume for model year 2012. Owner, Don Bloom and Sales Manager, Taylor Pease accepted the award on behalf of the dealership.
Lastly, we were very proud to announce our inaugural President’s Club winner. Bob Reilly, co-owner of North Eastern Rescue Vehicles, is the first inductee to this elite group. He was honored for his tremendous impact on Braun Industries and will be featured in a separate blog highlighting all of his accomplishments while working in the EMS industry and with Braun.
Congratulations again to all of our winners! We are proud to have you as part of our dealer network and the Braun family, and we are so thankful for your contributions!
