Western Marketing, Inc. (WMI) Receives Chevron’s Highest Honor for Distributors of Its Lubricants – The 2012 Eagle Award
Each year, the Chevron 1st Source Lubrication Marketer with the highest overall Recognition Score is honored with the prestigious Eagle Award. The Eagle Award acknowledges Western Marketing’s unparalleled passion and commitment to the Chevron lubricants business with focus on premium products and coolants, value-based selling, and year-over-year volume growth. Western Marketing’s successful partnership with Chevron, and strength of their sales/service teams, is demonstrated by this outstanding performance. Chevron senior management announced this industry achievement at their Annual Leadership Forum held late last year in Scottsdale, AZ.
Mike Miller, Western Marketing’s president and chief executive officer commented “For decades WMI has annually ranked amongst the highest in Chevron’s “Signature Class” of marketers so it’s especially nice to receive this unique recognition for the quality products and services the entire Western Marketing team provides our customers.”
