FE&S Proudly Announces its 2014 Top Achievers

Dealer, consultant, service agent and rep will be honoured at the annual Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala in May.

Foodservice Equipment & Supplies proudly introduces the winners of its 2014 Top Achiever Awards:

  • Top Achiever – Dealer: Drew O'Quinn, vice president, Thompson & Little, Inc., Fayetteville, N.C.
  • Top Achiever – Consultant: Kristin Sedej, FCSI, principal/owner, S2O Consultants, Cary, Ill.
  • Top Achiever – Service Agent: Gary Potvin, president, Pine Tree Food Equipment, Gray, Maine
  • Top Achiever – Rep: Chris Folz, vice president of sales, The Redstone Group, Englewood, Colo.

This year's Top Achievers will accept their awards during FE&S' 2014 Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala, which takes place Saturday, May 17 at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago.

"Although they come from four different links on the supply chain, several ties bind FE&S' 2014 Top Achievers," said FE&S' Publisher Maureen Slocum. "They each approach their business with a vision, a willingness to embrace technology and a passion for the foodservice industry that's second to none. Individually, they set the tone for their own companies but collectively they raise the bar for the entire foodservice industry with their integrity and commitment to excellence. We are excited to recognize Drew, Kristin, Gary and Chris with FE&S' 2014 Top Achiever Awards."

FE&S is able to present its 2014 Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala thanks to the generous support of its three platinum sponsors: Manitowoc Foodservice, True and Unified Brands.
