SAVANNAH, Ga. – JCB recently hosted construction equipment dealer sales personnel from the United States and Canada at its North American headquarters in Savannah for a “Power Up” training event and awards dinner. During the awards dinner, JCB recognized its top-performing construction dealer sales personnel with the company’s exclusive Superstar Ring program.
“2014 marked our best year in JCB’s North American history,” said Dallas Reeves, JCB North America’s vice president of sales. “That wouldn’t be possible without the hard work that our dealers and their sales personnel put forth every day in the field. The Superstar Ring program gives us the opportunity to recognize those individuals who have taken their sales efforts to the next level in a given year.”
Based on a point-scoring system, JCB’s Superstar Ring program recognizes and rewards the efforts of JCB’s top ten dealer salespeople in North America. During their first year in the program, members receive a JCB Superstar ring. Salespeople who continue to excel in subsequent years receive diamond additions to their rings.
At the recent awards dinner in Savannah, JCB recognized the following Superstar Ring members for their achievements:
First-time winners: Clayton Frost, JCB of Alberta, Red Deer, AB; Robert Heck, Darr JCB, Oklahoma City, OK; Jeff Mackinley, JCB of Alberta, Calgary, AB; and Chris Schnur, Moore JCB, Toronto, Canada.
