“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” This quote from Benjamin Franklin certainly rings true for all three of this year’s Excellence Award winners. One dealer asked for input from employees and customers before completely redesigning its facility, which helped it grow retail sales by about 35% over the course of a single year. The other two winners launched education programs that thoroughly impressed our judges. All three are proof that knowledge can play a critical role in your pursuit of excellence.

As the editors of ProSales magazine present our 18th annual Excellence Awards, we express our gratitude to this year’s judges who made this issue and the awards possible. Many thanks to: Brian McCauley, director of sales training for Atrium and Simonton Windows and Doors, both part of the Cornerstone Building Brands family; Scott Morrison, president of Scott Morrison Consulting; Chris Rader, CEO of Rader Solutions; and Robb Wilson, head of Wilson Lumber.
