Pierre Bernal of ProSource Wholesale Floorcoverings in Carrolton, Texas, is the grand prize winner of the Invista's “Why I Sell Stainmaster” Contest.

The contest asked sales professionals in the retail carpet industry to enter the contest by sharing a post or uploaded video on the Sale Professionals for Stainmaster brand Facebook page telling what makes them passionate about selling the Stainmaster brand. Contest winners were determined based on individual entrants who received the highest number of “likes” for their post by the end of the contest.

“It was incredible to hear how Stainmaster carpet resonates with sales associates and provides a brand they can confidently recommend to their customers,” said Melissa Minihan, vice president of marketing for Stainmaster.

Bernal was declared the grand prize winner, and he won the $3,000 Amazon.com gift card grand prize.

“As I pointed out in my contest video post, I always know that when my customers choose a Stainmaster carpet, they’re choosing a top quality carpet that’s durable," he said. "I really don’t have to sell Stainmaster because it sells itself.”

In addition to the grand prize winner, Invista also recognized two additional participants who placed second and third place in the contest. Kerri Fisher of ProSource Wholesale Floorcoverings in Arroyo Grande, Calif., was runner-up and was awarded a $500 Amazon.com gift card, and Isabelle Prodan of Sarmazian Brothers in Guelph, Ontario earned the third place spot and received a $500 Amazon.com gift card, as well.
