Affiliated Distributors Names Viega Supplier of the Year – Marketing Excellence

WICHITA, KAN. – Viega was awarded Affiliated Distributors (A-D) 2008-2009 Supplier of the Year – Marketing Excellence award at the organization’s annual meeting on Oct. 20, in Dallas, TX. This is the second consecutive year that Viega has been recognized as a Supplier of the year in support of A-D members. Viega won the 2007-2008 award for Supplier of the Year – Performance.

The Marketing Excellence award Viega just received is one of the most prestigious awards given at the annual A-D meeting. Jeff Neczypor, Director of National Accounts, explains Viega received this award “not due to the result of anyone’s singular effort, but the efforts of several Viega employees.”

Some of these efforts include: Product webinars resulting in the highest attendance of any vendor webinar (with over 850 people in attendance for the 2009 series), joint marketing activities and sales stimulator programs, counter days, ride-alongs and much more.
