EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Atlas Van Lines has awarded its Sales Progress Award to the four Atlas agents whose sales growth increased most dramatically this year. For this award, Atlas recognizes one agent in each of the four sales categories who experienced the greatest percentage of sales growth over the previous year. The awards will be presented at the 59th annual Atlas Convention, held Nov. 1-4 in Phoenix, Ariz.

"To have a dramatic change in sales without a dramatic change in the market means that the salesperson found new, compelling ways to present Atlas' value proposition," said Jim Stamm, vice chairman, president and COO of Atlas World Group. "So we're not just recognizing sales success with these awards, we're also celebrating innovation, attention to quality, service, and excellence."

The agents awarded in each category, based on the greatest percentage of sales growth from the previous convention year, are:

  • Category I - King Moving & Storage, Inc., Ada, Okla. - 493% increase from 2005
  • Category II - Cissell Transfer & Storage, Inc., Clovis, N.M. - 290% increase from 2005
  • Category III - JBL Moving & Storage, Inc., Van Nuys, Calif. - 272% increase from 2005
  • Category IV - Ace Relocation Systems, Inc., Orlando, Fla. - 94% increase from 2005

Agents qualify for this award based on their sales category and sales growth over the previous convention year — July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006.
