America’s “Top 40”
Des Plaines Office Equipment Receives 2013 Elite Dealer Award; national industry publications selects Chicago firm as one of 40 outstanding dealers across U.S.
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, ISSUED JANUARY 13, 2014…Des Plaines Office Equipment (DPOE), the Chicago area’s leading provider of office and technology solutions 1955, has received the 2013 Elite Dealer Award from The Week in Imaging, a national e-zine which each year selects top office equipment/imaging solutions dealers from all across the United States, through a nomination/evaluation process.
The Week in Imaging is a national industry e-zine, run by veteran writer/editor Scott Cullen. The annual award honors the best and the brightest in the dealer community. Selections are based on a company’s growth, innovative marketing, sales programs, community leadership and leadership within the industry.
Des Plaines Office Equipment was one of 40 dealers nationally who qualified for the designation. It is the seventh consecutive year that DPOE has won this award.
The Week in Imaging editor/publisher Scott Cullen announced, “This is an award that honors the best and the brightest in the dealer community. We all know it’s a shrinking community, but on a positive note, many of those who remain are stronger than ever and holding their own against some of the most intense competition they’ve ever faced. In narrowing down our selections we focused on growth, innovative marketing and sales programs, community leadership, and leadership within the industry. What we’ve settled on are a group of dealers who we are proud to call Elite.”
“This is one of the more sought-after awards within our industry because the competition is so intense,” said Chip Miceli, President of DPOE. “Scott Cullen does a great job with The Week in Imaging and helps raise awareness of our industry issues.”
He added, “We understand the importance of staying at the cutting edge of technology and are pleased to be recognized in this way.”
