Belleville, Ontario – July 28, 2016
Triangle Fluid Controls (TFC) is pleased to award the 2016 Randy McKay Sales Award of Merit to Ryan Kelly, in recognition for his outstanding sales performance with TFC. The award was given to TFC’s Regional Sales Manager (RSM) whose territory had the largest year-over-year sales increase from 2015 – 2016 and was presented July 28 at TFC’s headquarters in Belleville, Ontario. “We are extremely pleased to award Ryan Kelly with the first ever Randy McKay Award of Merit,” said TFC’s President, Mike Shorts. “Over his short time with us, Ryan has showed immense passion and dedication to our team that has not only seen revenue growth in new markets for TFC but would make the award’s namesake proud.”
The award, created in memory of the late Randy McKay, TFC’s Central Canada RSM, was created by Shorts as a means of paying homage to his former employee. “Randy did a lot for TFC, was a stand-up individual, and somebody that I personally, learned a lot about sales from. After Randy’s passing in 2015, I knew I wanted to create an award in his memory and present it to his family.”
Also in attendance at the award ceremony, was Randy’s son Brock, representing the McKay family. Brock was also awarded a glass sculpture on behalf of TFC, for his father’s dedication to the company. “This place [TFC] meant a lot to him. It was inspiring to see someone who had such a passion for what they did,” remembered Brock.
The award included two pieces: an engraved glass plaque and hand blown glass sculpture made similar in shape, style, and colouring to TFC’s company logo. A second plaque will hang in TFC’s lobby with each year’s winner added to it. The making of the pieces, commissioned by a local glass blower in Prince Edward County, was completely documented and can be found posted online on TFC’s social media channels or by clicking here.
