8 November 2006 — Broomfield (CO): Corporate Express has been named a 2006 World Class Sales Award winner by the sales performance consultants, Chally Group.
The last time a company in the office products industry was recognised was in 1994.
Since 1993, Ohio-based Chally Group has interviewed 80,000 buyers and decision-makers in the US and asked them to rate the salespeople they work with. Out of 7,300 sales forces only 21 have met the World Class criteria.
Mark Hoffman, President and CEO of CE North America, said: "The award recognises sales excellence for Corporate Express across all our product lines, so it’s a strong endorsement of our sales team performance."
