KICKER Recognizes 2019 International Distributors-of-the-Year

STILLWATER, OK (02.03.2020) – KICKER is proud to recognize two of the company’s International Distributors-of-the-Year for outstanding performance in 2019 – Grupo Monsiry (Mexico) and OG, Inc. (Japan).

Having earned a reputation as one of KICKER’s hardest-working distributor partners, Grupo Monsiry surpassed every goal KICKER management requested while serving Mexico, Central America and Colombia.

“They have shown a real tenacity in the marketplace,” said Chet Weddle, KICKER Director of International Sales. “No matter what goal we threw at them, they would hurdle it. When they attend shows, they do it in force. Just this past CES, they brought 15 members of their sales staff to the show.” 

OG, Inc., led by principal Hideki Ogino, was chosen for the other International award in recognition of the extraordinary effort put forth in the distributor’s home country of Japan.

OG has been honored several times with this award. Its consistent excellence in marketing the KICKER brand has proven to be a benchmark. In determining who is honored, KICKER looks at how the brand is represented in each territory, in addition to financial considerations.

“They do up to 50 shows a year around the country,” explained Weddle.  At every event, OG will bring many of their customers from Japan to experience the KICKER lifestyle.  The effort they put forth earned them the recognition.”
