Lyons Falls, NY: Otis Technology presented their 2022 Sporting Goods and Law Enforcement Sales Awards on the opening morning of the 2023 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show.

Every year Otis Technology presents awards to the sales representatives and agencies which have shown initiative, sales growth, outstanding effort and customer service over the course of the last year. Otis Technology has recognized J.R Keller of Jeff Robles & Associates as the 2022 Sales Representative of the Year. “Keller took over one of our largest retailers when a long time rep retired and has really stepped up to fill some big shoes,” remarked Kenda Campbell, Director of Commercial Sales at Otis Technology. She continued, “His dedication to his territory and persistent pursuit to getting our brands placed is remarkable. In a challenging year we really appreciate his dedication to keeping our brand name strong. “

Additionally, Otis Technology and Shooter’s Choice also recognize its top sales agencies that have shown exemplary performance over the last year. This year, Otis is excited to announce Jeff Robles & Associates as Sporting Goods Sales Agency of the Year, Odle Sales as Law Enforcement Sales Agency of the Year and Forward Edge Marketing Group as Government Sales Agency of the Year.

“As Otis’ longest tenured agency, Jeff and his team continue to show the enthusiasm and knowledge of the Otis product line that it takes to drive business in the ultra-competitive firearms accessories category. In an extremely tough market and year, they continue to outperform expectations,” stated Campbell.

Greg Essenlohr, Government Sales Manager for Otis Technology, remarked, “With the Odle LE sales team’s out of the box thinking, they were able to understand and maneuver the uncertainties brought upon by the pandemic and subsequent international turmoil. Not only did they grow existing accounts but cultivated new sales channels within their respective territories as well.”

“Forward Edge has unrelenting dedication and enthusiasm for our brands which positions Otis to better serve the U.S. Armed Forces Exchange Services. This year alone, we were able to grow our product placement exponentially and position our brand as the mainstay in the category”, reflected Essenlohr.
