Woodard Honors Heisley, Vander Horsts with Top Sales Awards
Casual furniture producer Woodard has named Don Heisley the winner of its 2017 Sales Achievement Award, and named Jay and Jason Vander Horst Salesmen of the Year.
Jay Vander Horst has been with Woodard for 12 years and his son, Jason, officially joined Jay in January. It was the third time Jay has received the Salesman of the Year award. The Vander Horsts provide sales, dealer support and service to retailers, specialty stores and designers throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
Heisley was recognized for his outstanding sales volume and accomplishment of his sales goals. He has represented Woodard for 32 years, and covers Georgia, South Carolina and North Florida. It marked the second time he was recognized for significantly increasing the company’s business in this important outdoor territory. Heisley said he has seen significant growth in the casual aluminum market in his territory over the last year.
“We are very fortunate to have many top sales reps, men and women who are dedicated brand ambassadors for Woodard. Selecting a single recipient for each of these awards was difficult; many had numbers that were very close,” said Belinda Lavender, Woodard’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We congratulate Jay, Jason and Don for their outstanding efforts in not only sharing and supporting Woodard with their customers throughout their territories but for also setting a wonderful example for all of our other sales reps to follow.”
Woodard’s furniture is available in more than 30 finishes and over 1,100 fabrics designed to fit any style or setting. The company also offers a wide variety of fire tables, umbrellas, outdoor pillows, and other accessory pieces to enhance any outdoor living space.
