After a Covid-induced recess in 2021, NPW’s yearly recognition event is back on for 2022.
Even with the issues caused by Covid, NPW says it is adding 12 new suppliers to the roster of supportive manufacturers who will be recognized at its Annual Million Dollar Vendor dinner this year. The total now is more than 40, up from an inaugural nine charter members in 2012.
This black-tie event, taking place on Friday, Jan. 28, is held to recognize NPW vendors in the “Million Dollar” plus sales category for their efforts to grow NPW revenue. Companies who achieve membership in the Club are presented awards and their names placed on the company’s Honor Cup for posterity.
The event will be held again at the scenic EAST hotel in the Brickell section of Miami. The setting from the 40th floor offers a breathtaking view of the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay. For this occasion, NPW tapped the Alliance President and CEO John Washbish as the Keynote Speaker. Washbish’ s long automotive career makes him an informative, motivating and entertaining speaker.
Larry Pacey, CEO and president of the NPW Companies, offered these remarks about the Club and their Expo weekend: “Our FAST Expo on Jan. 30 is the kickoff for our selling season. We appreciate what all our suppliers do for us and we wanted to do something special for them so we created the Million Dollar Club to recognize those at the forefront in growing our sales and hope that we encourage others to make it to the Club level as membership benefits the supplier, our customers and of course NPW. And this year we have seven members who have exceeded the $5 million mark with us.”
