The 87-year-old R. Williamson & Associates, a Berner rep since 1973, earned its "Presidential Gold--Commission Reps" with several high profile projects throughout its territory of Chicago, Northwest Indiana, Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.
"We can always count on them to produce; their year-to-year performance can be summed up in one word–consistency,” said Berner's National Sales Manager Michael Coscarelli, who presented the award.
SRS Enterprises, which covers the New York City, Long Island and northern New Jersey territories for Berner, had a successful year with commercial retail, hotel and high end residential high rise building businesses in front-of-house and back end shipping/receiving door openings.
"SRS has an outstanding market presence which allows them to grow their sales with Berner intentionally,” said Stephen Benes, a Berner sales manager. “I don’t think you’ll find an agency who works any harder than SRS Enterprises. They are responsive when following up on sales leads and are always looking for a way to promote Berner, which accounts for their success.”
