“Recipients of this yearly award have many common traits,” said Roland Lindner, North American national sales manager for STOKO®. “These are the distributors whose management proactively supports the training of their own sales personnel. They also support the partnering with our sales team and the allocating of sufficient training time on our products to build proficiency in selling the STOKO® line.
