At the Aug. 26 event at the Signature Grand in Davie, Fla., returning winners and first-time honorees spoke of creating sustainable, lasting value, particularly while emerging from the pandemic.

“The efforts from our roster of 148 employees have truly been herculean these past few years, in particular during the Covid crisis,” Moore told Trade Only Today. “Reaching this sales volume was made possible by their dedication, their pride in customer service, and often their ingenuity to make good decisions that lead to the betterment of our team.”

About 160 people attended the event, according to the journal.
