Sales Representative of the Year Award 2017


Scott Ellis

This award recognizes an outstanding sales representative within the casual furnishing industry. Candidates were selected based on leadership, professionalism, exceptional service, communication skills, knowledge and product training expertise. The 2017 winner, selected from five finalists and determined through online voting, was Scott Ellis, an independent sales rep with Brown Jordan, Tropitone and American Leather. Ellis began his career in the outdoor industry in 1990 when he joined his father-in-law, Bill Berman, a former Brown Jordan rep in the New England territory. Ellis says, “The best and most rewarding part of my job is working and partnering with retailers to help them grow.” ICFA members reviewed the nominees and cast their ballots in online voting in early September.
