Named Buck Sales Representative Agency of the Year was the Gadbois Agency, headed by Pierre Gadbois. The Buck Knives Honors Top Sales Reps B agency, headquartered in Laval, Quebec, serves Buck dealers in Eastern Canadian provinces. Serving the smallest of Buck’s sales territories, the Gadbois sales team grew more than 300 percent in 2009. “This dramatic increase was based on their energized focus on programming and face-to-face meetings with all levels of customers in their territory,” said John Weaver, Buck’s director of sales and marketing. The individual Sales Representative of the Year Award went to Deb Garvick of Richardson, Texas-based Tackett Brothers Agency, which covers 11 states. Garvick was cited by Weaver for “her efforts, attitude and willingness to ‘get it done,’ and for territory growth at every distribution channel in a difficult retail environment.” Buck Knives chairman Chuck Buck presents the Agency of the Year Award (left) to Pierre Gadbois, Gadbois Agency, and the Sales Representative of the Year Award to Deb Garvick, of Tackett Brothers Agency.
