The DPA Buying Group, a member driven marketing & networking organization, recently announced its 2011 Distributor and Supplier of the Year recipients. These awards were presented at DPA’s Annual Buying & Networking Conference in San Antonio, Texas on April 24, 2012. They recognize sales quotas achieved and exemplary support of DPA member companies.

Congratulations to DPA Distributor of the Year, Knight Marketing Corp. of Maspeth, N.Y. Knight Marketing has been a DPA member since 2009 and was chosen out of 200 distributors for this award. In the short time that Knight has been a member, they have attended every DPA conference, were the top winner in the 2010 DPA travel program and have shown unwavering support of DPA preferred suppliers.

“Stan Peters and Peter Panagakos are true professionals and we are proud to recognize them as DPA’s top distributor in 2011,” said Zachary Haines, DPA Executive Director.

DPA Supplier of the Year went to CRW Supply/Hydro!Force of Salt Lake City.

This year’s Founder’s Award was only the fifth given and it went to Frank & Nataly Daskalakis of Cleanergy Supply Co. of Dayton, Ohio.

“The Founder’s Award recognizes a company or individual that has been with us from the beginning and that embodies the spirit of the organization,” says Haines. Cleanergy has never missed a DPA Conference and always finishes among the top distributors in most orders placed at the show.

This is just one way Cleanergy supports DPA preferred suppliers. Cleanergy Supply Co. is a family owned and operated business since 1979 and has been a member of DPA for 12 years.
