Each year at the ISSA/INTERCLEAN trade show, ProTeam honors a rep group and an outstanding sales representative for their contributions to the year’s success. This year, in the windy city’s Hilton Chicago Suites Hotel, ProTeam awarded Dick Ryan of Ryan, Saffel & Associates as the Mark Reimers Sales Representative of the Year 2012 and Hinton Sales, Inc. as the Larry Shideler Manufacturer Representative Agency of the Year 2012. ProTeam also added another award, honoring Buckley & Associates as ProTeam’s Outstanding Rep Agency over the last five years.

As the Mark Reimers award winner Ryan has posted top quartile performance in account management, end-user development, sales, and new product launches. In addition to masterful use of ProTeam sales materials, he demonstrates a sense of urgency, resourcefulness, and is known as the “ProTeam guy” by his key customers.

To earn the distinction of the Larry Shideler Award, rep agency Hinton Sales, Inc. has excelled in business planning and execution throughout 2012. While building strong relationships with building service contractors in the Southeast markets, Hinton Sales has expertly used targeted communication to reach out to their end-users and roll out new products.

“The Mark Reimers and the Larry Shideler awards honor the ProTeam Manufacturers Sales Representative and ProTeam Sales Agency that exemplifies all the positive business traits, and ethics that ProTeam values in the people and sales agencies that represent us in the field” said Rich Steinberg, Vice President of Sales for ProTeam.

With the best five-year growth rate and record distributor growth year after year, Buckley & Associates is viewed as a leader in their own territory and nationally by other ProTeam reps. Their outstanding market presence has allowed them to communicate ProTeam’s Cleaning for Health® message, helping customers to boost productivity while improving performance.

“The Outstanding Rep Agency Award is ProTeams newest and highest honor, and we are proud to present this award to the Buckley & Associates Sales Organization” said Steinberg.
