January 6, 2013 (Rockford, Mich.) – In the world of golf, the green jacket is a time-honored tradition and one of the sport’s most prized trophies. Just as greats like Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Tiger Woods have proudly worn the green jacket, so did the Sullivan – Bishop Agency team at the recent Chaco sales meeting, where custom Chaco green jackets were awarded to the sales agency of the year for the brand.
“We worked so hard this past year,” said Bishop, still wearing his green jacket with the Chaco gecko embroidered on the chest pocket weeks after the sales meeting ended. “Winning this award makes it all worth it.”
The Sullivan-Bishop Agency saw high double-digit growth throughout its territory that covers Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. The sales group is comprised of Mike and Sue Sullivan, Allen Bishop, Tony Lee, and Zach Meixner.
“We are incredibly fortunate to have the Sullivan – Bishop Agency represent the Chaco brand in the south central territory. They’ve done a great job in creating opportunities, growing our business, and strengthening our relationships with our retail partners,” comments Chaco director of sales, Todd Gordon. “Their agency is a highly experienced team that delivered very strong results for the Chaco brand in 2013”.
