The National Pronto Association honored three of its members for their excellence at the recent Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) National Virtual Conference and Exhibition.
The Monaco Group of Canada received the Pronto Membership Marketing Excellence Award. The prize was received virtually by Yvan Domingue, Vice-President of the Monaco Group.
The award honors Member Pronto who has consistently demonstrated excellence in marketing in the markets it serves throughout its geographic location. The Monaco Group is made up of three distribution centers strategically located in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto and they support 22 corporate wholesale stores, as well as a network of more than 70 affiliate wholesale partners.
Monaco’s commitment to promoting and developing the Pronto brand is unmatched within the Pronto group, the organization said.
The Pronto National Accounts Award was presented to the Parts Authority of New Hyde Park, New York. Serving a national account requires great focus and flexibility and this award recognizes a member who has consistently provided exceptional service and value to this important market channel. As one of the leading direct suppliers to installers, Parts Authority continues to lead the way in this market channel, offering high growth potential to Pronto members and supplier partners.
Cost Less Distributing from Vancouver, Washington won the Pronto Co-Man Member of the Year award. The Co-Man Award recognizes not only significant buying and growth, but also supporting and contributing to program improvement. Cost Less is a major supporter of Operation Co-Man and a member of the Co-Man Council, providing meaningful feedback and support, helping to guide the future direction of the program.
