Distribution companies in the jan/san industry live and die by the success of their salespeople. However, not all sales reps get recognized for their standout accomplishments.

So, Sanitary Maintenance sought out to give some well-deserved attention to the leading distributor sales representatives in the industry. We asked distributors to point us in the direction of those sales reps they felt were the best among their peers in the industry, but not based on sales numbers alone.

There were many worthy candidates with sales success stories, but we narrowed down the pool of nominees to those we believe best represent the industry as a whole, while also having a certain uniqueness about them. Without further adieu, we introduce our 2011 Sales Leaders.

Bill Allen, Fagan Sanitary Supply

Brad Bobbitt, AmSan

Lindy Hebert, Sanitary Supply Co.

Hector Herrera, Armchem International Corp.

Josh Brown, Northern Colorado Paper
