Scott Dantis, director of sales and marketing, was nominated for the Marketing Executive of the Year Award. Bill Pyne, a member of the Pyne family that oversees Williams Trading, was nominated for the Community Leader of the Year Award.
"Excellent retail management practice includes consistent training and, thus, engaged employees make all the difference," Dantis said. "Even though some people may be naturally adept at maneuvering through the kaleidoscope of adult products, most are not and they need training.”
“Without proper training, sales and profits will not meet expectations, employee turnover will go up, store appearance will suffer, customers will be dissatisfied and the downward spiral will continue,” Dantis added. “It’s a no win situation, we wanted to provide a solution and assist our retail partners with WTULearn.com."
"We are thrilled to be honored with the 2016 XBIZ industry awards,” said Bob Pyne Jr., President and CEO of Williams Trading. “We are humbled to be among the talented individuals being recognized by our industry peers. Thank you for these outstanding nominations.”
