“Bryant has always been committed to providing dependable, worry-free comfort, but we couldn’t do that without our dealers who sell the products, install them, and keep them running smoothly,” said Tom Archer, Bryant brand manager. Medal of Excellence applicants are judged on overall Bryant branded product sales growth, high-efficiency and IAQ equipment sales growth, customer satisfaction, and participation in various dealer programs and promotions. There is also a self-assessment component to the scoring. The applicants with the highest overall scores are chosen as regional winners.
