The Vernon Company (PPAI 109323) has named Lisa Pelzel (above, left) of Beacon Promotions its 2017 Supplier Account Manager of the Year. The Newton, Iowa, distributor presented Pelzel with the award during its annual National Sales Meeting in April at The Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee.

“Lisa is one the best,” says Vicki Palm, director of marketing. “She continually goes above and beyond in her services for Vernon and our account executives. She’s proactive with client storyboards, creative marketing options and product information. She works harder than most to help our AE’s wow their clients and close the sale.”

Pelzel adds, “I am humbled and honored to accept this award on behalf of the entire Beacon/Hub group. It’s because I work with such a strong team that I am able to offer outstanding service. Vernon has been an important partner for many years and it has been a pleasure to grow our businesses together.”

The Supplier Account Manager of the Year is someone who goes above and beyond to provide Vernon and its account executives with the kind of service that helps to make everyone else’s jobs a little easier. The company began honoring individual supplier representatives for outstanding service and dedication to Vernon and its account executives in 2014.
