Showdown Displays Awards Sibinski Lifetime Achievement Award
Showdown Displays, Ramsey, Minn., announced recently a special Lifetime Achievement Award to Phil Sibinski of Phillip J. Sibinski and Associates.
"This one is long overdue, in our opinion, with all the contributions that Phil makes to our organization and our industry," said Ed Flaherty, principal of Showdown Displays.
"Phil was the one I contacted when we realized we wanted to become a supplier to the industry. He provided us with all the start-up knowledge and really became our mentor when we were so new. We didn't even know what we didn't know," said Flaherty. "Phil offered key advice in a wide range of areas including product selection, identifying key personnel, marketing, pricing and distribution."
Sibinski was also awarded PPAI's prestigious "Rep of the Year" award. Sibinski was twice previously awarded "Rep of the Year" by ASI, making him the only three time winner of these national awards.
"Rep of the Year, yes, but more important than anything is Phil's enthusiasm about this industry and his product lines," said John Lundberg, vice president of sales. "Ask Phil to conduct a sales meeting in a distributor's office and if you're fortunate to be there, it's a joy to behold. And he's been spreading that joy throughout his territory for almost thirty years. We're lucky to have him."
"We have a great rep team in all territories and they've communicated our message effectively, which is that we can be distributors' one-stop shop for all these products, which their client companies, large and small, need and use to promote their business at trade shows and events, indoors and out," said Lundberg.
Showdown Displays has been one of the INC 5000 fastest-growing companies in the country for the past four years and sells through distributors in the promotional products industry.
