WIX Filters and Counterman named James Davison of Eastern Warehouse Distributors in Vineland, New Jersey, the 2018 Counter Professional of the Year.
The Counter Professional of the Year award, sponsored by WIX Filters and first presented during the 2018 AWDA Recognition Luncheon in Las Vegas, annually recognizes an automotive aftermarket parts professional who exceeds expectations, continually pursues advanced training, is a go-to counter pro and is an ambassador for the aftermarket.
“WIX continues to honor individuals who consistently go above and beyond to provide outstanding customer service in their local markets,” said Jennifer Gibson, brand manager for WIX Filters. “James demonstrates that commitment to helping his customers and employees, and we’re so excited to recognize him and his family in Las Vegas.”
As a former technician, Davison understands the function of each part, and he can talk the talk with his professional customers. Although he has a passion for classic cars, he also stays up-to-date on the latest vehicle technology.
“Knowing my customers rely on me gets me up each morning, motivated to do my best,” said Davison. “You have to love your job. If you don’t like your job, you’re probably not doing your job 100 percent, and you’re not making it any easier for any of your employees or your customers.”
As part of the Counter Professional of the Year award, Davison and his wife received an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas for AAPEX 2018. Counterman presented the award to Davison at the WIX Filters and Babcox Media Night of Excellence at The Venetian Resort.
