Express Receives Sales Awards
Corporate Express, parent company of Top 40 distributor Corporate Express
Promotional Marketing (asi/168781), has been named a 2006 World Class
Sales Award winner by the Chally Group. The sales performance consulting company
assessed sales forces by interviewing 80,000 business purchase decision-makers.
The interviewees were asked to rate the salespeople with whom they had contact
on 15 different criteria. Of the 7,000 sales forces rated by Chally only 21 have
met the standard for World Class to date.
“We are particularly proud
of this award because it is based
on our own customers’ feedback,” says
President and CEO Mark Hoffman.
Corporate Express accepted the
award at this year’s World
Class Sales Winners conference
held in Atlanta.
