Lochinvar recently celebrated the accomplishments of this year’s top-performing VIP Contractors by awarding them an all-expenses-paid trip to Nashville, TN. Each of the attending VIP Contractors and their guests visited Lochinvar’s hometown for three action-packed days and all-star treatment, including tickets to the CMA Music Festival, a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery and a visit to Lochinvar headquarters for a roundtable discussion.

The 2010-2011 King’s Court was comprised of ten VIP Contractors who achieved success this heating season in various ways. For example, five VIP Contractors who have participated in the program in the past were selected based on outstanding growth over previous years in terms of qualified Lochinvar product registrations. Three “Rookies of the Year” were also chosen for having the highest number of product registrations in their first year as a VIP Contractor. In addition, one VIP was named “Best Performer” for proving to be the most impressive all-around marketer of his company as well as Lochinvar products. And finally, the Grand Prize winner of the VIP Installation Showcase was also appointed to the King’s Court.
