At the end of each year, ProTeam presents awards to honor the manufacturer representative and rep groups who made significant contributions to the year’s success. For 2017, Rick Rogers of Mid-America Distributor Sales was recognized with the Mark Reimers Award. The Illinois-based group, Apex, received the Larry Shideler Manufacturer Representative Agency of the Year award. Lastly, Market Advantage Plus was recognized as Outstanding Rep Agency for 2017.

In order to be considered for the Mark Reimers Award, a sales representative must have top performance in account management, end-user development and sales, and new product launches. The recipient for 2017 was Rick Rogers.

“Rick steadfastly presented ProTeam values and Cleaning for Health programs to all his accounts,” said Vice President of Sales Rich Steinberg. “He contributed significantly to Mid-America Distributor Sales’ 2017 sales success.”

The award for Manufacturer Representative Agency of the Year is named after the founder of ProTeam, Larry Shideler. Apex, the winner for 2017, showed top ranking and exceptional growth.

“Congratulations to Apex for earning the Larry Shideler award,” said Steinberg. “They embodied his boldness, planning, and execution during their successful year building the ProTeam business.”

The award for Outstanding Rep Agency is reserved for the company with continuous year over year growth and business building activities. The New England-based agency Market Advantage Plus demonstrated significant growth in 2017.
