Sportif USA honored Julie Weeks, the clothing line’s Midwest territory representative, with the Salesperson of the Year award for 2005. Weeks received the award in November from Tom Williamson, vice president of Sportif, at their annual sales meeting in Reno, Nev. Weeks, who has been a rep for Sportif for more than seven years, was honored for opening 52 new accounts for Sportif while maintaining her current account base by higher than 90 percent for the year.
â€œPart of the big increase was due to the launch of Sportif’s new women’s division, Aventura,â€ said Weeks. â€œAventura is a very exciting and creative line that makes it easy to sell. I am hoping to win the award again next year, but I am sure other reps from Sportif might have something to say about that.â€
Founded in 1965, Sportif produces men and women’s sportswear designed to be comfortable and effective. Their original designs are infused with rich colors and authentic prints inspired by the company’s home in the Sierra Nevada. The Aventura clothing line was launched in 2005.
