This month, we hosted our 2015 Distributor Conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. We celebrated hard work and our distributors’ continued success at the event, held March 9–12. More than 500 people were in attendance, including distributors, employees and their families.
The conference was filled with engaging presentations from guest speakers and exciting announcements from the division’s executives, who brought attendees up to speed on companywide programs, new products and other initiatives. In addition to providing the chance to interact and share innovative ideas, we look forward to this event each year as it gives us the opportunity to honor our dedicated distributors.
This year, the prestigious Distributor of the Year Award was presented to Gensco, Tacoma, Washington, for outstanding performance in 2014. The Distributor of the Year Award is also awarded to a single distributor in each of the five business units. The following companies were recognized at this year’s event:
- Central: The Habegger Corporation, Cincinnati, Ohio
- Northeast: ABCO HVACR Supply + Solutions, Long Island City, New York
- South: Johnstone Supply – The Ware Group, Jacksonville, Florida
- Southwest: Robert Madden Industries, Ltd., Lubbock, Texas
- West: Gensco, Tacoma, Washington
The conference wasn’t all business, though. We managed to squeeze in some quality time on the golf course as well as hold a family-friendly race car competition at the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway. On the last night of the conference, we concluded with a celebratory performance by hit 70s band Three Dog Night.
