Cleveland Brothers of Harrisburg, PA, has announced the recipient of the 2005 Bill Staley award, Frank Kessler.
Kessler is a territory sales representative in Adams, Cumberland, Juniata and Perry counties. Kessler has been at Cleveland Brothers since 1999, and works from the Harrisburg branch. The award was presented by Used Equipment Manager Bill Yurkovic and Executive Vice President Tom Kirchhoff.
The Bill Staley award is given by the used equipment division to the salesman who has exhibited outstanding used equipment salesmanship throughout the previous calendar year. The Bill Staley award was named after a former used equipment manager who was an important role model and mentor to Bill Kirchhoff, Cleveland Brothers’ current vice chairman. Bill Staley had a positive impact on many of Cleveland Brothers’ senior managers as well.
Votes for the award come from a panel of Cleveland Brothers executives and managers from a variety of departments. Consideration was given to the proper handling of every step of the used equipment sales process, plus the actual number of used equipment deals completed throughout the year.
