The Federated “Vendor-of-the-Year” awards are presented annually to the suppliers who provide the best overall service to the Federated membership. The award recognizes dedication to excellence in the areas of leadership, marketing, training and sales support. “We have many fine partners and friends at Federated,” said Fisher. “We initiated the Vendor-of-the-Year Awards as a way to recognize some of the companies that stand out each year with their marketing initiatives, customer service and leadership abilities. The companies we chose for 2003 truly are committed to establishing an outstanding and long-lasting partnership with Federated.”
