Yes, that title says 2016. Generally, Land Pride has our Annual Sales Meeting in late winter to early spring. Not so much this year.
This year, Land Pride’s Sales Meeting took place in Dallas, TX August 8-11 in conjunction with the Kubota Summer Sales Meeting. August 8th was highlighted by the Land Pride Sales Banquet where the 2016 Sales Awards were presented. Award winners included James Melcher, Credit Management; Van Anne Sales, Top Sales Increase; Ryan Smith, Top Sales; and Deke Adams, Overall Performer. The final award of the evening was a new award: The Don Armour Memorial Award. Criteria for the award are being a true gentleman, going the extra mile in everything they do, and treating everyone with respect at all times. The award was presented to Don’s son, Dave Armour -- not because they have the same last name, but because Dave Armour exemplifies all of the necessary criteria! Congratulations to all of our award winners.
Additionally, as part of the Kubota portion of the meeting, Land Pride personnel presented new tractor implements and new CE attachments in a field demo to nearly 400 people, including Land Pride Territory Managers, Kubota Regional Sales Managers, Kubota Corporate office personnel, and Kubota and Land Pride management. The products presented will be introduced to Dealers in October and to consumers around year end! Stay tuned for some GREAT NEW Products!
