Jacobsen has recognized its top-performing dealers and salespeople during the Golf Industry Show in San Diego.
G.C Duke Equipment was awarded the North American Dealer of the Year award, a Canadian dealer with nearly 65 years in the industry. Jacobsen’s Global Dealer of the Year award went MTE Turf Equipment Solutions, a Northeast-based dealer with over 50 years in the industry.
The two top honors are based on a dealer’s sales growth, market penetration and market share.
Individual dealer salesperson awards went to Mark Casey of MTE Turf Equipment Inc., Josh Shull of Turfwerks (Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, and Missouri), and Manny Cervantes of Kansas Golf & Turf (Kansas).
