Alpine Electronics of America Announces Rep and Rep Firm of the Year
Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. recently announced its aftermarket Rep and Rep Firm of the Year for 2016. John Evans was named Rep of the Year and Online AV was named Rep Firm of the Year.
Evans is a direct Alpine employee who represents the San Bernardino, Riverside, Santa Barbara and Kern Counties in California. An 11-year employee of Alpine, Evans successfully balanced his business responsibilities to support the Alpine Restyle vehicle-specific solutions among his retail and expediter accounts. Evans relished the role of product educator and always made time to conduct Alpine product trainings, even if it meant visiting the same retailer multiple times to ensure every employee received training. He developed sales materials based on the needs of the accounts, and his enthusiasm and success helped encourage fellow sales reps to do the same for their own accounts.
Online AV is led by principal Mark Taylor and includes members Milo Kosich and Dan Sparks. Kosich and Sparks were recognized for their success in the Ohio, West Virginia and western Pennsylvania territories. To support the Alpine Restyle Jeep Wrangler lineup, the Online AV team purchased a Wrangler to use for retail visits and consumer events. They also participated in trail rides and off-road excursions for first-hand experience about the Wrangler lifestyle. The knowledge gained from these excursions allowed them to better support their retailers and expediters during sales calls and product trainings.
