Is the top LET salesperson in YOUR team?
 Top of the LET tree: FEA’s sales professional of the year will win £500 cash

Are they working in YOUR team?

With the Light Equipment and Tableware Forum fast approaching, FEA is calling for any last minute entries for the Sales Professional of the Year Award to move fast, as the nominations close on May 1. 

Along with the prestige of being named best LET sales professional, the winner gets the coveted trophy, a place on FEA’s Certified Foodservice Professional (CFSP) training course plus £500 in cash. 

Corey Mayes, who won in in 2023, says, "It was a proud moment in my career in the industry, being noticed by our suppliers for my effort and commitment. The award was lovely to receive and going on the CFSP course was a great opportunity.  The cash came in very handy for my summer holiday!"

The award celebrates those salespeople who offer ‘above and beyond’ customer service, win major business contracts or who have success in developing sales of utensils and smallwares. 

The award will be presented at the LET Forum awards dinner, on Tuesday 14th May.  The shortlist will be unveiled a week earlier.
