Independent sales agent Russ Tuttle of The Tuttle Company has received the 2007 Brass Ring. Award from ICOR International Inc. ICOR VP Gordon McKinney and Business Director Walt Cooper presented the award to Tuttle for outstanding territory sales growth over the 2006 calendar year.

“Russ has done an outstanding job representing our line for well over a decade now and he has never lost his enthusiasm for selling our products,” said McKinney.

“What separates Russ from other sales reps is that he has a powerful work ethic and truly knows his products,” said Cooper. “Our sales agents are held to a very high standard. They must possess a comprehensive understanding of the ACR trade including all mainstream refrigerants.

“Our agents now receive biannual performance reviews and I am pleased to say that that Russ Tuttle is also the first agency to hold an ICOR Gold Level performance rating.”

Based in Aiken, S.C., The Tuttle Company was established in 1990 and, along with the ICOR line of products, represents the lines of Sealed Unit Parts Co., RectorSeal Corp., and Weiss Instruments.
