LoLo Honors 2014’s Top Distributor And Sales Rep

LoLo, the Byram, Miss., maker of steamers, tilting skillets, kettles, and countertop cooking equipment, has recognized two distributors for outstanding performance in 2014. Chernoff Sales has been named LoLo’s 2014 Distributor of the Year. Chernoff, based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., covers the entire state of Florida for LoLo.

“Chernoff has what some of our other notable distributors have: a great sales team, terrific service, that red-letter, ‘git-r-done’ attitude,” according to Clay Thames, LoLo’s national sales manager. “They work their tails off and they don’t lose accounts because persistence is a big part of their playbook. But they really stood out in 2014 for this: in addition to being one of our large distributors, they had a very impressive rate of growth.”

Reed Hughes from Southern Ice won honors as LoLo’s 2014 Distributor Sales Rep of the Year. “I’m very happy to offer a big pat on the back to Reed,” added Thames. “A fixture on the Texas and Oklahoma landscapes, Reed earned kudos for, above all, being tops in noncommercial segments, like schools.”
