Foodservice Equipment and Supplies magazine presented its 2012 DSR of the Year award to Morgan Tucker, of Patterson, N.J.-based M Tucker, a division of Singer Equipment NY, LLC. Tucker accepted the award in front of the hundreds of foodservice professionals in attendance during FE&S' 2012 Dealer of the Year and Industry Awards Gala, which took place May 5 at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago.
"Every one of our 2011 DSRs of the Month are very ethical, hardworking and professional," said FE&S publisher Maureen Slocum. "For these reasons our DSRs have earned the respect of their customers and supply chain partners, who shared their heartfelt endorsements of our dozen DSRs with us. As a result, choosing the 2012 DSR of the Year was a tough task. But we proudly recognize Morgan's accomplishments. She is simply outstanding in every way possible."
While she has experience in all aspects of the industry, Tucker has developed a strong expertise in tabletop. She also excels in selling smallwares as well as janitorial and sanitation products. In only three years at the company, Tucker's sales are approximately $3 million annually.
After graduating from Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration in 2007, Morgan Tucker worked as a manager for both Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group and Stephen Hanson's BR Guest Restaurant Group. Then, four years ago, she followed in the footsteps of her father Stephen and grandfather Marvin by becoming a dealer sales rep.
