Schaafsma Heating & Cooling Named Bryant Dealer of the Year

June 13, 2011

Schaafsma PhotoSchaafsma Heating & Cooling from Grand Rapids was named 2010 Bryant Dealer of the Year. Each year, hundreds of Bryant dealers from all over the United States and Canada have the opportunity to compete head-to-head in Bryant's Medal of Excellence (MOE) program, and one is crowned Dealer of the Year. Schaafsma Heating & Cooling was one of the final 15 Medal of Excellence winners and the one awarded 2010 Bryant Dealer of the Year. What an accomplishment!!!!

The MOE program consists of a dealer scorecard that measures dealer performance, with a focus on business results. Key measurement areas are Bryant sales growth (year over year), product mix, customer satisfaction, and program participation. Dealers compete in one of three sales tiers, designed to "level the playing field" for dealers of any size. The top-scoring dealer in each of the three sales tiers for each of the five regions is invited to attend the national awards event, where the Dealer of the Year is crowned. This is where Schaafsma was crowned Dealer of the Year in front of over 600 attendees.

Ask your Territory Manager how you can participate this year and be in the running for the 2011 Bryant Dealer of the Year. Any Bryant dealer with two full years (Jan. - Dec.) of purchases may participate, be a regional finalist and attend the awards event, however, only a Bryant Factory Authorized Dealer can reign as Bryant's Dealer of the Year.
