Top 40 distributor HALO Branded Solutions (asi/356000) recently concluded its annual national sales meeting, which had record attendance of nearly 250 top salespeople – the company’s reps who made up most of its $218 million in 2014 sales.
In addition to a single-day trade show featuring products from more than 140 industry suppliers, the meeting included keynote speeches from Tim Andrews, president and CEO of ASI, and General James Livingston, a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. HALO supported General Livingston’s message of patriotism, leadership and courage with a $2,500 donation to support the construction of the new Congressional Medal of Honor Museum at Patriot’s Point in Charleston.
“The enthusiasm of our group – both account executives and suppliers – reflects the positive momentum we are seeing in our sales growth,” said Jim Stutz, executive vice president of HALO. “The information and inspiration provided at this meeting energized our sales team for the second half of a successful year.”
With $218 million in 2014 North American ad specialty sales, HALO ranks as the sixth-largest distributor on Counselor’s Top 40 list.
