UniCarriers Americas rewards top dealer sales professionals

UniCarriers Americas Corporation (UCA) awarded its top sales professionals for both new forklifts and aftermarket parts with a trip to Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf and Spa Resort in Mexico. More than 40 qualified sales and aftermarket parts professionals from dealerships across the U.S. and Latin America and their guests joined UCA personnel at the resort as a reward for continued success in growing the UniCarriers brand.

During the March trip, UniCarriers Americas presented several awards to recognize 2014 dealership and individual sales performance, including:

·  Unit Awards going to each sales representative present, with the top unit award presented to Miguel Medina from Monatcargas Galeria in Monterrey, Mexico.

·  Sales Representative MVP Award winners were selected by their UCA regional sales managers for achieving the highest level of performance and dedication within their territories.

·  Dealer Sales Manager MVP Award winners were chosen based on the recipients’ focus on the UniCarriers Forklift brand, dedication to training, commitment to excellence and consistent improvement of their sales teams. The winners ranged from less than two years, to nearly 40 years of sales management experience.

·  The Aftermarket MVP Award was presented for consistent excellence in partnership, processes and results across aftermarket operations, as well as actively growing the business and finding new ways to partner with UCA.

Other awards included dealer-based sales performance in total new equipment and aftermarket parts. The final, and most coveted, award went to UCA’s newest Pinnacle Award winner, Rich Mustico, of CFE Equipment.

“The UniCarriers Americas team not only had the opportunity to spend valuable time with the dealers, but to express our appreciation for their business and pledge to thoroughly support them in our shared objectives moving forward,” said Steve Cianci, vice president, sales and marketing, UniCarriers Americas. “This annual trip is a wonderful time for our top dealer professionals to interact with their peers and UniCarriers Americas executives in a beautiful and relaxing location.”

To qualify for the trip, dealer sales managers and sales representatives for all UniCarriers brands were entered into contest groups determined by their dealership’s market size. The highest number of points determined the top representatives in each of the contest groups during 2014.

“I work hard for UniCarriers Americas. I believe in its products and its dealers,” said Henry Hannan, vice president at M&L Industries, who attended the Pack for the Sun event. “We have an outstanding product with superior support, and I’m honored to be a part of the team.”
