“Nikon chooses their top reward recipients using a selection criteria
way beyond sales increases,” said Randy Garrison, Senior National Sales
& Marketing Manager for Nikon. “While sales increases are taken into
consideration we look for the groups and individuals that truly
represent the core characteristics that make them an important business
partner to our customers. Their overall efforts in planning, execution,
analysis and follow through are the components which separate Nikon
salesmen from the rest and what we look for in our final criteria
selection. I am proud to say that in 2012 these salesmen exceeded
expectations, and with that, also exceed their sales goals
