HALO/Lee Wayne’s National Sales Meeting Sets Records
HALO/Lee Wayne, based in Sterling, Ill., set supplier and account executive attendance records at their recently concluded 2008 National Sales Meeting at The Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, California.
Over 180 of the industry-leading firm’s top account executives attended the week long event, representing over $90 million in annual sales volume from participants. The meeting featured a trade show with over 120 of the company’s preferred suppliers, combined with two days of preferred supplier small-group training sessions. Set amidst the pristine beauty of Lake Tahoe, evening events included a dinner “sunset cruise” on Lake Tahoe, as well as a closing ceremony in the famous Olympic Village near the winter Olympic venues.
According to Dale Limes, HALO/Lee Wayne senior vice president of sales, “Our attendance record reflects the growing number of high-volume sales professionals we continue to add to our team. The supplier training, combined with additional training on our proprietary sales, marketing and technology tools, creates a noticeable increase in our sales each year. The support of our suppliers and account executives during a challenging economy is a testament to the positive momentum we’re experiencing.”
