June 28, 2018 – Last week, Promo Marketing released their annual Top 50 Distributors list for 2018. The Vernon Company held its spot from last year at #19 and is the only promotional products distributor in the state of Iowa to make the list.
“All of us at Vernon are very pleased to see increased sales for the 8th straight year,” said Dave Regan, Vernon’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our salesperson and client satisfaction scores are at an all-time high where we see unprecedented retention in the sales team and our customer base. The fact that we have made significant investments in the areas of technology and marketing tools are paying huge dividends allowing us to attract top salespeople to align with The Vernon Company. This is also true where customers are being drawn to our tech capabilities as well. We are on the right track to keep the success train rolling!”
