APRO associate member and spring 2019 APROfile subject George Ramel recently won Best Performance Over Sales Quota and Most Dollar Volume in Sales in New Upholstery Division from Progressive Furniture at the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina. The company held its Annual Award Dinner presented by Dan Kendrick, president of Progressive Furniture, and Mike France, vice president of sales and marketing of Progressive Furniture.

“George was the top seller in our newest category in Upholstery Furniture, and because of his great success he achieved the highest total sales percentage in 2018 on his annual given quota,” says France. “We are very happy with the Ramel’s success at Progressive.”

George and Angie Ramel have been working side-by-side to serve rent-to-own dealers at Progressive Furniture for the past ten years. George was introduced to the industry in his early career with Bassett Furniture where he initially crossed paths with France. “My first interaction with George was in 1971 when we first worked for Bassett Furniture. We’ve been associated together with several different companies over the years,” says France. “They are both terrific people to know and work with at Progressive Furniture.”

“I am so humbled to receive these two awards,” shares Ramel. “We could not have achieved these accomplishments without the support of the industry.”
