Pete Joy of Phillips Industries and Doug Sharp of Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems have earned the 24th annual Don Shoemaker/Scott Wilson Sales Professional of the Year award from Midwest Wheel Companies.
The duo were presented their awards earlier this month by John Minor, president and CEO at Midwest Wheel, during the company’s 39th annual sales meeting.
Midwest Wheel says Joy is a long-standing friend of the company and a great representative of the aftermarket. He was co-chair of Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2006, and earned the MEMA Triangle award in 2007 and the CVSN President’s Award in 2017. He has represented Phillips Industries since 2009.
Sharp has also served Midwest Wheel as a district sales manager for Bendix for nearly a decade. Prior to his time with Bendix, Midwest Wheel says he supported the distributor at Federal Mogul and Carlisle Motion Control.
Midwest Wheel says judging for its annual award is conducted by the company’s branch managers, sales professionals and product managers. The honor is awarded on the basis of meeting a number of criteria including: proven loyalty, adherence to policies, exemplary professional conduct, demonstrated product/industry knowledge, professional selling skills and the consistent display of respect and courteousness throughout their business dealings, the company says.
