SYRACUSE, N.Y. - During Totaline’s fifth annual Sales Center of the Year Awards held in Las Vegas, Nev., nine Totaline Sales Centers were honored with the distinction of 2007 Sales Center of the Year: Brownsville, South Texas; Waco, North Texas (three-time winner); Knoxville, Tenn.; Daytona Beach, Fla. (three-time winner); Florence, S.C.; Frederick, Md.; Stratford, Conn. (two-time winner); North Bay, Ontario, Canada; Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Award-winning sales centers were top performers in their regions in six key aftermarket categories, including compressor sales, generic motor sales, thermostat sales, and tool and instrument sales. “The purpose of the Sales Center of the Year Award is to encourage a competitive environment for growing the aftermarket business,” said Bob Carre, Totaline business development manager. “It’s a prestigious award.”

Also during the celebration, the 2007 Totaline Leadership awards were presented to: Roy Tindell, sales center manager for Totaline Waco, North Texas; John Witz, zone sales manager for Totaline; Joe Murley, market manager for Totaline Central Florida; and Brian Power, area manager for Totaline Central North Canada. They were honored for their excellence in building and leading successful Totaline teams.

Awards for the best 2007 Totaline store remodels went to: Totaline Dartmouth, Canada, Crystal Gillespie, store manager; Totaline Tallahassee, Fla., Kevin Calhoun, store manager; and Totaline Harahan, La., Joseph Jones, store manager.

These stores were chosen because their remodeled showrooms allow for additional product displays, promote sales, and facilitate new levels of excellence in customer service.

During the awards ceremony, Greg Deldicque, Totaline vice president and general manager congratulated the honorees.

“Thank you for your hard work and commitment to our customers and to Totaline,” he said. “This year’s awards are particularly special since we are celebrating Totaline’s 20th anniversary commemorated by the slogan: Parts and people. Working together.”
