Freightliner Trucks Announces 2013 Leland James Elite Program Winners

Contact: david.giroux@daimler.com


FORT MILL, S.C. – Sept. 5, 2013 Freightliner Trucks today announced that it has awarded its top dealer sales professionals “Elite” status through its annual Leland James Sales Achievement program.

Created in 2003 and named after Freightliner Trucks’ founder Leland James, the program recognizes and rewards outstanding sales results from dealerships in the United States and Canada. Recipients were selected for both on-highway and vocational sales success, and each winner will receive a custom plaque and gift. The top 26 sales professionals will be honored at a special awards ceremony later this year in Charleston, SC.

 

Achievement is based on successful sales but also takes into consideration other criteria, including total number of customers, type of trucks sold and training certification.

 

“Our Leland James Elite program recognizes sales professionals who sell to a variety of customers into many market segments,” said David Hames, general manager, marketing and strategy for Freightliner Trucks. “The winners are true professionals and exemplify superior salesmanship. We are honored to award them Leland James Elite status.”

 

Added Richard Saward, general manager, vocational sales for Freightliner Trucks: “We are pleased to offer this program each year to create an exciting competition that honors our top dealer sales professionals. They work very hard and deserve the recognition.”
