"The main focus of the Lifetime Achievement Award is to recognize outstanding performance and professionalism," said Ray Wright, executive director of IPRO. "Paul Fitzpatrick was the most qualified man to receive the award. He's been an exceptional representative and a rare gem in our industry."
In its 19-year history, IPRO has presented only five individuals with a Lifetime Achievement Award, with Fitzpatrick being the most recent recipient. Nominations for the award are examined very critically by the organization's board members, and all board members must be in total agreement in selecting an honoree. In Fitzpatrick's case, IPRO's board members made the universal decision that he was very deserving of the award for his many years of support and outstanding achievements as a sales representative and member of the organization.
"I am very humbled by this award, and I certainly appreciate the recognition from IPRO," Fitzpatrick said. "I'm proud to see that IPRO has grown into the successful representative organization that it is today, and I cherish the great memories of the early years and the support the organization has given me since."
Fitzpatrick was one of the founding members of IPRO and has been repeatedly recognized as Representative of the Year by the group. The Lifetime Achievement Award acknowledges his many years of giving back and his personification of IPRO's mission statement to manage relationships and outstanding sales performance through education and ethical conduct.
