Engine & Performance Warehouse (EPWI) recently named its 2012 "Vendor Of The Year" and "Representative Of The Year" at an Awards Dinner during EPWI’s annual summer conference in Vail, Colorado.
The annual Vendor of the Year award is presented to the supplier or manufacturer based on performance scores during the prior year in seven categories: distribution/sales policies, pricing policies, inventory, returns, labor claims, office support and shipping/packaging.
Past recipients of this award include S.A. Gear, Total Seal, Pioneer, B&P Rods, COMP Cams, Cylinder Head Center, Clevite Engine Parts, Dura-Bond Bearing Co., Damper Doctor, Melling Engine Parts, Joe Gibbs Racing, Howard Enterprises, SB International & Hastings Piston rings.
Nunez, founder of Innovative Marketing Services, is EPWI's only repeat winner for this award. Jerry sadly passed away in November. His wife, Lynne Trimble, now heads IMS & accepted the award on his behalf.
The Rep of the Year is selected annually, on a rotating basis by region, using combined votes based on performance scores during the prior year in three categories: sales support, distribution philosophies, and timely and accurate follow-through.
