ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
In an organization known for its high standards of excellence, Vector Marketing Corporation’s Standard of Excellence award is a true honor. The company recently bestowed that honor on 11 of its sales professionals at the recent Eastern Region Awards Banquet. More than 500 hundred corporate executives, managers, sales professionals and their families and friends attended the banquet, held earlier this year at the Sheraton Atlanta Downtown in Atlanta, Georgia.
Standard of Excellence status is awarded to Vector Marketing sales representatives and managers who have reached a goal of $150,000 or more in personal sales for the previous year or $750,000 or more in office sales for the previous year. The 2013 Standard of Excellence winners were:

$750,000 or more in office sales:

First Time Standard of Excellence winners are inducted with a picture slideshow and are awarded the Sword of Erick, presented in honor of Alcas Corporation (now Cutco Corporation) former Chairman of the Board, Erick J. Laine. Each subsequent year, they will be awarded a dagger with a different jewel. Winners are also the guests of honor at a special reception and dinner held the evening following the Vector Marketing Corporation awards banquet.
“Individuals who achieve the Standard of Excellence are true leaders,” says Scott Dennis, Region Manager of Vector Marketing’s Eastern Region. “They have demonstrated superior skill, dedication and hard work.”
