With the Olympics set to begin shortly, it seemed an appropriate time to talk about some winners for LBP last year. Our corporate theme for 2013 was Fuel The Fire. It encouraged our associates to build upon the progress made during 2012, which had followed several challenging years for our company and our industry. Everyone was eager to put those lean times behind us and get back on a path of growth and success.
Within LBP we have a monthly PAR (Personal Accountability Report) that measures and ranks our associates and branches based on established criteria. Points are earned in various categories resulting in monthly, and then yearly, winners. These champions are announced at our annual sales meeting in January, but I wanted to take a moment to salute them again here in this blog.
Our champions – our ‘gold medalists’ if you will – for 2013 are:
Region of the Year – East Region – under the leadership of Billy Mosby, Regional Vice President.
Branch of the Year – Jackson MS – with Carey Baker, Manager
Sales Rep of the Year – Karl Snedaker – Idaho Falls ID
Branch Operations Manager of the Year – Paul Nations – Jackson MS
and Warehouse Manager of the Year – Rich Maconochie – Statesville NC
Congratulations, again, to these gentlemen for their outstanding achievements in 2013!
