Roppe Corp. has announced its 2002 Salesman and Distributor of the Year. The 2002 Salesman of the Year is John Rogers and the 2002 Distributor of the Year is Pacific Flooring Supply.

John Rogers, regional sales representative, manages a territory consisting of southeast Texas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi. Rogers earned this award by working closely with distributors throughout his territory. This work ultimately led to increased market share and allowed Rogers to exceed Roppe's expectations for the territory.

Pacific Flooring Supply manages seven branches and is headquartered in Emeryville and Sacramento, Calif. Pacific Flooring Supply was recognized because five of the seven branches exceeded the sales goals set last year, which led to increased market share for Roppe in that area. Pacific Flooring Supply has worked with Roppe for over thirty years, and is one of the oldest, active distributors working with Roppe.

The winners of Salesman of the Year and Distributor of the Year are determined by evaluating certain criteria, including meeting and exceeding sales goals, gaining market share, and increasing market penetration of Roppe products.
