DENTCO’S Teresa Phelps Honored as RFMA’S Vendor of the Year…But Not For Retiring!
DeWitt, Mich., – (March 14, 2018) – According to DENTCO’s President Scott Milnes, National Sales Director, Teresa Phelps, was presented with the 2018 Vendor of the Year award at the annual Restaurant Facility Management Association (RFMA) Conference held March 4-6 in Phoenix, Arizona. And the presenter also announced her retirement at the end of 2018!
“I was sitting in the audience with one of our marketing executives and was clapping for Teresa and her amazing award; then, I was like, what? Did they just say she was retiring at the end of this year? It felt like an early April Fools Prank!
According to Sue Bosscher, DENTCO’s Director of Human Resources, “All joking aside, the entire team at DENTCO and Terresa Phelps are happy to report that there is NOT an opening at DENTCO for a National Sales Director Position.
“I love traveling; I love visiting my grandchildren in Florida even more; I love talking about it…but I am not retiring. At the very least, I know how much I am loved and would be missed! Thanks to my coworkers, associates, clients, friends and family for all the kind words. And to our President, Scott Milnes; sorry for the unplanned early April Fools announcement.”
The RFMA Vendor of the Year Award is presented to individuals who demonstrate exceptional leadership characteristic as well as a commitment and dedication to the advancement of the industry and organization.
“It’s an honor to be presented with this award; this is a testament to our team of people who have worked hard to make DENTCO what it is today”, said Phelps.
