Dean Williams With "Rep Of The Year" Honor

Eagle Creek recently named luggage industry representative, Dean Williams, principal of The Williams Group, as the company's "Representative of the Year" for 2006.

Every year Eagle Creek recognizes its top sales representative for their individual commitment, sales success and their ability to sell complete travel outfitting throughout their retail accounts.  Williams has been with the company for close to seven years, covering the Northern California Travel Goods Market and this year was chosen out of a field of over 40 representatives for his dedication, professionalism and his strong contributions to the success of Eagle Creek.  For this, Eagle Creek will be sending Williams on a 12-day, all-inclusive adventure travel trip for two to Ecuador.  

"Dean is part of an elite group of reps who have a thorough understanding of what it takes to be a successful retailer in our industry," said Eagle Creek Vice President of Sales, Michael Millenacker. "We not only value his business development skills, but lean heavily on his ability to read the market and provide impactful feedback.  Dean works harder and smarter than anyone in the business."
