Brad Johnson, regional manager for N.A. Williams, was honored with the “Spirit of MAHLE Award” at the annual MAHLE Aftermarket Sales Strategy Meeting held on January 16 in Livonia, Michigan. The award recognizes MAHLE’S “Rep of the Year” for 2018.

“We want to congratulate Brad on this tremendous honor,” said John Bender, vice president of traditional sales for N.A. Williams. “By receiving this award, Brad was recognized by MAHLE for his hard work and leadership working closely with our partners at MAHLE. We are not surprised that Brad was recognized for his outstanding efforts and everyone at N.A. Williams congratulates him on this well-deserved award.”

The Spirit of MAHLE Award is presented to the MAHLE employee or agent that represents all of the intangibles of what a MAHLE representative should be: work ethic, determination and the willingness to go above and beyond to reflect MAHLE in the most positive way.

In addition to Johnson’s honor, N.A. Williams was also recognized by MAHLE as the manufacturers’ representative agency with the highest sales increase in 2018. Bender and Johnson accepted the award on behalf of N.A. Williams.

“The sales increase award from MAHLE is truly a team award and I want to thank everyone at N.A. Williams for their support and dedication in helping us achieve this honor,” continued Bender.
