The President’s Choice Award winner for August embraces the tenets of our Vision Statement daily.

Mike Bates, as a Columbus Merchandiser, eagerly and gracefully adapted to the changes required in this position. Recently Mike has been covering sales routes and has handled the transition from a Chain/Grocery route, back to merchandising and then on to a General Market route with the ease of a skilled Account Manager. He has a passion for success, learns from his mistakes and strives to be better every day. Mike has recently been promoted to an Account Manager in the Large Format Region.

He builds great relationships in the market and with the drivers that also service his accounts. Mike’s goal is to always do the best thing for the company and for his customers and he has exceeded those expectations.

Congratulations Mike!
