Bellingham WA-StJohn Group, a specialty distributor of high-performance products for North America, announced its annual Representative Awards at the companys national sales meeting in Denver last month. Taking top honors as Representative of the Year was Ian Castell of Castell Marketing in the metro New York/New Jersey territory.
For the companys MVP (Most Valuable Player) Award, there were actually three winners: Clarity AV from Southern California, iRep from greater Chicago and Bettridge & Ryan Sales from the Rocky Mountain territory.
Most Improved Territory went to AVR (Audio Video Representatives) in the Southeast while the Sales Rhino award went to Jay Hough of InTandem Canada for his hard charging style.
John Caldwell, sales director and co-founder of StJohn Group commented, Even the best brands and products still need to be marketed and sold effectively in order to produce successful results. The performance of these representatives has been truly outstanding and it is StJohn Groups pleasure to recognize them with these awards.
According to Caldwell, there is more good news for independent representatives, this time in the commercial markets. StJohn Group is conducting interviews seeking iSky Panel representatives in select territories to market the companys award-winning products into commercial channels.
Based in Bellingham, WA with a satellite office in Ventura, California, StJohn Group has 17 regional representative firms and an active roster of more than 800 specialty AV dealers. StJohn Group specializes in products and services for the systems integration market–both residential and commercial–and represents Artcoustic Loudspeakers, Cabasse Loudspeakers, iSky Panel Systems, and Screen Research in North America and the Caribbean.
