TYLER, Texas — American Standard’s Residential Group recently held its first-ever National Territory Sales Manager Meeting here.

Dave Pannier, the Business Unit Leader of all Residential Products for American Standard, opened the territory managers’ awards dinner and ceremony by congratulating attendees for their efforts in attaining another year of record equipment sales. Pannier stated, “No other brand in the heating/air conditioning business can validate the claim that they’d grown their annual sales by 20 percent every year since 1990.”

The top 20 selling territory managers, as measured by success in the American Standard “Stars & Stripes” national sales promotion, were awarded a Wittenhauer watch and a custom-designed achievement plaque for their efforts.
