Metro is honored to be a recipient of the GainShare Achievement Award for 2nd Year in a row
Metro Electric Supply, a locally-owned and family operated wholesale commercial and industrial electrical distributor, received the GainShare Achievement Award in the Member category for the second year, consecutively. The award winners were recognized at IMARK Group’s annual Distinguished Performance Awards banquet.
“I’m very proud of our employees for helping us achieve this very high status in our industry,” says Bill Frisella, president of Metro Lighting and Metro Electric Supply. “There are only four to five distributors in each category that are nominees, so it’s quite an achievement to even be a nominee.”
Metro Electric Supply was nominated in three of the four categories: Excellence in Sales and Marketing, GainShare Achievement, and Member of the Year. In addition, Metro Electric Supply received the Member of the Year Award in 2015.
It’s quite an honor to once again receive the GainShare Achievement Award,” says Bob Mirbaha, vendor relations manager for Metro Electric Supply. “In my opinion, this award is the most important because we were able to keep the momentum and build on last year’s sales.”
The GainShare Achievement Award is determined by data gathered by IMARK HQ. The criteria include:
- Number of successful GainShare programs in 2016
- Percentage of successful 2016 GainShare programs with supplier partners
- Amount of GainShare rebate earned from 2016 programs
- Amount of GainShare rebate as a percent of total rebate income
