EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Atlas Van Lines has awarded Nelson Westerberg, an Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based agent with the Largest Sales Producer Award.

"Although an agent receives this award based on its sales revenue, this distinction is indicative of much more than an agent's income," said Glen Dunkerson, president and chief operating officer of Atlas Van Lines. "It's about an agent's return on investment for maintaining the highest quality standards year-round and continually exceeding customer expectations."

In addition to its Elk Grove Village location, Nelson Westerberg has offices in Mableton, Ga., Somerville, N.J., and Carrollton, Texas. Founded in 1904, it joined the Atlas family in 1960.

The award, given annually to the agent with the highest overall sales for the convention year, will be presented at the 60th annual Atlas Convention, held Nov. 7-10 in Orlando, Fla. For more information on Atlas' annual awards, visit
