Komptech Americas recognized the achievements of three individuals during the company’s customer appreciation event held at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017.
The “Salesperson of the Year” award was presented to Ryan Puckett, area manager at Henderson, Colo-based Power Screening, LLC. Puckett is the first two-time winner of this award, which originated in 2008 and recognizes the Komptech Americas dealer representative with the highest total machine sales volume each year.
“Ryan’s leadership skills and accomplishments with the Komptech product line are all that you could ask for in a dealer,” Komptech Senior Area Sales Manager Todd Dunderdale said in a statement. “Year after year, Ryan has demonstrated an ability to build customer relationships and sell a wide range of product types into the marketplace, which is a testament to his work ethic and dedication.”
Mike Smith, sales representative at Calif.-based Bejac Corp. was honored with the first annual “Spirit of Komptech” award which was created in memory of Komptech’s late founder, Josef Heissenberger. This distinction recognizes the dealer representative who best demonstrates the ideals and passion of Komptech.
“Mike’s willingness to always go above and beyond to support his customers, coupled with his vast product knowledge and passion for the industry is exemplary,” Dunderdale said. “He embodies what this award is all about and we could not have a better representative as the inaugural recipient.”
The award for “Service Technician of the Year” was presented to Keith Hennen, owner of Hennen Equipment in Chaska, Minn. Hennen is a two-time winner of this award, which recognizes service excellence, technical expertise and an unwavering commitment to the industry.
“Keith is a true professional with an outstanding work ethic and deep knowledge of the Komptech product line,” Komptech Area Sales Manager Garrett Lapsys said in a statement. “He works closely with his customers to consistently provide reliable support and does whatever it takes to make sure their equipment is running smoothly.”
