Bateman accepted the award at the 2006 Edward Don & Company Supplier Expo held at the Frisco Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. Nominations made by Don’s district and regional managers were presented to the Don sales reps, who then voted and selected Bateman, citing their appreciation for his being the vendor rep who most helped Don reach its goals in the Sanitary/Maintenance arena. This is the third time that Rubbermaid Commercial Products has won this award for Don’s Dallas Branch.
