Freightliner Trucks on Thursday awarded its top dealer sales professionals “Elite” status through its annual Leland James Elite Sales Achievement program.
Created in 2003 and named in honor of Freightliner Trucks’ founder, Leland James, the company says the program recognizes and rewards outstanding sales results from dealer sales professionals in the United States and Canada. The top 44 sales professionals and seven sales managers will be honored at a special awards ceremony early next year.
Recipients were selected for on-highway, medium duty and vocational sales success, Freightliner says. The recognition also takes into consideration other criteria, including total number of customers, completing walk around presentation videos and training certifications.
“Our Leland James Elite program recognizes sales professionals who sell to a variety of customers into many market segments,” says Bob Correll, vice president sales, Freightliner Trucks. “The winners are truly well-rounded and display the same hard work, determination and customer-focused attitude that Leland James embodied. We are pleased to award them Leland James Elite status.”
“Each year we are proud of what these top dealer sales professionals accomplish. They work incredibly hard, and always place customers at the top of their priority list. They represent what the Freightliner name was built on, and deserve to be recognized,” adds Tom Zielke, business training manager, Freightliner Trucks.
