Vendor of Year 2020

Legrand Named Herman’s 2019 Vendor of the Year

Every year Herman recognizes one vendor that shows exceptional engagement across every facet of our partnership. We look for a vendor that supports Herman’s commitment to our values and strategic initiatives. With products from over 60 leading manufacturers, choosing just one to honor is a monumental task. Every vendor Herman works with represents the best of what the AV industry has to offer and we’re proud to partner with so many qualified companies. 

Each year since 2006, the entire Herman team votes for a manufacturing partner that goes above and beyond in support of our sales team and strategic initiatives to embody Vendor of the Year. The 2019 honoree was announced last month at Herman’s Annual Sales event held in Aventura, Florida. In addition to “Vendor of the Year,” for 2019, we introduced two new categories to honor: the “Preferred Partner Growth Award,” in recognition of year over year sales growth; and the “Manufacturer Rep of the Year.”

We are pleased to recognize the 2019 honorees as follows:

2019 Vendor of the Year: Legrand

2019 Preferred Partner Growth Award: Harman

2019 Manufacturer Rep of the Year: Patrick Mead, Senior Channel Sales Manager, Pro AV, Legrand
