HALO Branded Solutions Names Leed’s Supplier Of The Year
Distributor HALO Branded Solutions (PPAI 106462) presented its 2017 Supplier of the Year award and 2017 Supplier Representative of the Year award at its annual Awards Gala held at the Las Vegas Four Seasons Hotel in conjunction with The PPAI Expo.
Leed’s was selected as the prestigious 2017 Supplier of the Year based on a vote by the company’s account executives and support staff late last year. Over 70 preferred suppliers qualified for consideration based on exceptional service, aggressive pricing and creative sales promotion efforts.
“Our continued growth, as well as the growth of our preferred supplier program, is a result of the incredible support from key suppliers like Leed’s,” says Terry McGuire, HALO senior vice-president of marketing. Scott Anderson, director of sales for Leeds/Polyconcept, accepted the award.
Sue Tobias, senior vice president of sales (retired) for Fields Manufacturing, was recognized as the 2017 Supplier Representative of the Year. “Sue was an overwhelming choice, and this award is a fitting tribute to an exceptional industry career,” says McGuire. “We will miss her dedication to the HALO team, and her passion to her customers. We wish her well in retirement.”
Marc Simon, HALO CEO, notes, “Our preferred supplier program is an industry success story. The profit enhancements and exclusive promotions our preferred suppliers provide are passed on to our salespeople—this year we announced a new record of over $2 million in supplier bonus payments to our sales team. In turn, these key suppliers are honored with nearly 70 percent of our purchases. We are pleased to recognize these key suppliers for their efforts on our behalf throughout the year.”
