TransPerfect Executive Honored by Selling Power Magazine
Vice President of Sales Kevin Obarski Recognized as
"National VP of Sales of the Year"
NEW YORK, NY, December 7, 2007 – TransPerfect Translations, a leading provider of language and business services for multinationals worldwide, today announced that Vice President of Sales Kevin Obarski was presented with a Stevie® Award last night at the Selling Power Sales Excellence Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The awards were jointly presented by Selling Power magazine, the leading sales management publication with 145,000 subscribers in 67 countries, and The Stevie® Awards, which have been hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” (the New York Post, April 27, 2005).
More than 400 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories this year, including Best Run Sales Organization of the Year, National VP of Sales of the Year, and Sales Training Program of the Year.
Kevin Obarski, TransPerfect’s Vice President of US Sales, was chosen over four other finalists in the category and was named National VP of Sales of the Year. Obarski has been with TransPerfect since 2001 and oversees a staff of over 70 sales professionals operating out of the company’s 32 locations in North America.
“It’s an honor to receive this award,” said Obarski. “I’d particularly like to thank all of the managers and sales professionals on my team who have consistently risen up to tackle any challenges I’ve placed before them and to help drive TransPerfect’s growth. While I’m honored to have the spotlight, the dedicated professionals who make up my team are the true winners behind this award. I accept it on their behalf.” Obarski was highlighted for his commitment to mentoring young salespeople and fostering an environment of success.
Phil Shawe, Co-Founder of TransPerfect added, “Success in professional selling today is very much about providing solutions to customers. Kevin gives more of himself to leading his team and his customers to success than anyone I’ve encountered in my 15 years at TransPerfect. I’m pleased that, among all the Sales VP’s in the United States, the judges saw their way clear to recognizing his achievements at TransPerfect and his contributions to the field of professional selling.”
