Trane Recognizes ‘Best of the Best’ by Honoring Outstanding 2010 Distributors

The Pacesetter Award was presented at Trane’s annual awards event to seven of its leading channel partners who have exceeded expectations. The Pacesetter Award is given to the company’s top-performing sales channels, recognizing both Dealer Sales Offices (DSO) and Independent Wholesale Distributors (IWD). There are three groups within the DSO and IWD channels that receive the award based on market share and size. Additionally, an overall Pacesetter Top Performer Award is presented to one DSO and one IWD.

Weighted metrics around performance are used to determine the winners in each group. The total scores for each group are then used to determine the Top Performer Award.
