We take great pride in accepting these recognitions and are very pleased by this prestigious acknowledgement.”

Presenting the awards on behalf of Winsupply were Monte Salsman, COO; Steve Edwards, CMO: Eddie Gibbs, vice president vendor relations; Amy Souders, product marketing manager and Daryn Cherry, corporate showroom manager.
