Arnold Motor Supply Names Vendor, Rep Of The Year

The two awards were presented at the company’s annual Channel Partner Golf and Leisure event.

Arnold Motor Supply recently hosted its annual Channel Partner Golf and Leisure event in Spencer, Iowa.

For 31 years, the company has held the event as a way to say thank you to its valued channel partners. 

“We were so excited to see everyone, share an afternoon of golf and entertainment, and have dinner together,” said Eric Johnson, managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “Supply chain, labor and inflationary challenges face all of our businesses this year, but because of the great relationships we have with our suppliers, we’ve been remarkably able to work together to find solutions. This event is a great way to express our appreciation for those relationships.”

During the banquet, Arnold Motor Supply recognized Valvoline Strategic Account Manager Todd Mullins as the Vendor of the Year.

Brett Bartlett, territory sales manager with Bosch, was named Rep of the Year for his outstanding contributions with program and promotion development, fieldwork and store support.
