CHANTILLY, VA — April 11, 2018 – BDI’s designers and design team are often recognized for their innovative, award-winning work. But equally critical to the company’s success is the sales function and the team of sales representatives that bring these designs to retailers across the country. To recognize these important team members, the company is announcing the winners of its BDI Excellence Awards for 2017.

The BDI Excellence Award recognizes the BDI sales representative who achieves the highest level of growth over their projected budget within their territories, as well as maintaining the highest level of service and integrity – a personal quality that exemplifies BDI’s core values. The winners are selected by members of BDI’s sales management, customer service, and marketing teams. 

“Without the hard work and dedication of our sales representatives, our beautiful designs wouldn’t make it onto the retail sales floors, and ultimately into the homes of consumers,” said David Stewart, Vice President of Sales for BDI. “They are the main point of contact between our company and our retail partners that sell our products. Year after year, we see just how strong those relationships are. BDI would not be where it is today without their commitment to our company.”

For the inaugural awards, three sales teams were recognized in a ceremony on Wednesday, prior to the start of the Spring High Point Market. Following were this year’s recipients:
