KICKER Names 2017 Rep of the Year

Mar 19, 2018

Stillwater Designs, maker of the KICKER brand, has recognized four manufacturer representatives and four manufacturer representative firms for outstanding performance in the past year. One winner was selected from each region.

The yearly honors from KICKER went to Ryan Christie of N and S Marketing and Sales, headquartered in Bellevue, Washington; Nick Henry of Santa Fe Sales, located in Lenexa, Kansas; Steve Paul of Tech Marketing in Roswell, Georgia; and Todd Ess of Opus Marketing, headquartered in Bel Air, Maryland.

The KICKER rep-of-the-year criteria prioritizes service and communication skills, as well as fiscal success, according to the company.

The winners of the rep firm of the year awards were Murfco in Murrieta, California, Reil and Associates in Denver, Colorado, Tech Marketing and North Peak Sales in Houston, Pennsylvania.

“Ultimately, the reps are an extension of us,” said Brad Ganz, KICKER’s regional sales manager in the central U.S. “If they’re doing a good job, dealers are happy. It’s a well-oiled machine that keeps moving.  If there is a problem, we want the reps to be able to handle the issue quickly and effectively.”

Since KICKER places a premium on servicing its dealers, it celebrates the top rep firms and individual reps each year who exceed expectations.
