Arnold Motor Supply Names Vendor, Rep Of The Year

The two awards were presented at the company’s annual Channel Partner Golf and Leisure event this past week.

Arnold Motor Supply hosted its annual Channel Partner Golf and Leisure event this past week in Spencer, Iowa. For 31 years, the company has held the event as a way to say thank you to its valued channel partners. 

“We were so excited to see everyone, share an afternoon of golf and entertainment, and have dinner together. Supply chain, labor and inflationary challenges face all of our businesses this year, but because of the great relationships we have with our suppliers, we’ve been remarkably able to work together to find solutions. This event is a great way to express our appreciation for those relationships,” said Eric Johnson, managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply.

During the banquet, Arnold Motor Supply recognized Valvoline Strategic Account Manager Todd Mullins as the Vendor of the Year. 

“Valvoline is a true partner, always out in front supporting our product, sales and marketing teams,” said Brad Edwardson, vice president of business development at Arnold Motor Supply. “We are all up against supply chain challenges, but Todd’s communication and follow-through helps us address those issues head on.”
