Lew’s, the Springfield, Missouri-based rod and reel maker, has announced its latest sales awards. Sales Group of the Year is Mid-America Sports Sales, while sales representative Marty Holding of L.H. French Company is named Salesman of the Year.

The award is the first for Raymore, Montana-based Mid-America Sports Sales, which represents Lew’s in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

Holding is a 35-year fishing industry veteran and has been with L.H. French Company for 25 years. The agency represents Lew’s in a 13-state Western US region, with Holding responsible for accounts in Utah and Idaho.

“Mid America has grown the Lew’s presence in its territory since the relaunch of our brand in 2009 and achieved good increases again this year,” said Lew’s Vice President, Richard LaBauve.

“Marty Holding’s provision of in-store training for 64 national retail locations for one of his customers was an outstanding accomplishment and proof of his account-building commitment.”
