Murfco Earns “Rep of the Year”, Ultimate Entertainment Earns “Grinder of the Year EAST”, Momentum Earns “Grinder of the Year WEST”, and MAG Sales Earns “Rookie of the Year”

TEMPE, Ariz., – May 9, 2017 – CrimeStopper (www.crimestopper.com) has announced that it has named its Reps of the Year across multiple categories.

“CrimeStopper takes choosing the best of its already best in class sales team very seriously,” said Alvin Klement, national sales manager for CrimeStopper. “We are fortunate to work with top notch firms, so it is important that we not only outline what we expect from our team, but we also recognize what also makes them stand out on a daily basis. We see that extraordinary effort, enthusiasm, customer service, professional accord, margin, and will to win are every bit as important as pure volume in their respective territories. We are pleased to congratulate our partners today and excited to work with them into tomorrow.”

2017 Reps Award Winners include:

“Rookie of the Year” is awarded to MAG Sales

“Mike Sajecki and team hit the ground running with CrimeStopper, attacking the largest distributor in their markets and attaining their quarterly goal in one shot,” explained Klement. “They knew to make the line successful, and fast fulfillment/JIT was very important. They are an asset to the team and we are excited to see how they build on their early success. This is a team to watch out for in 2017 as they get settled in.”

“Grinder of the Year” in the east goes to Ultimate Entertainment

“This is the first year working with Dan Fischer,” said Klement. “He has come out of the gate firing on all cylinders. Not only has he achieved his sales goals but he, like others on this short list, does the little things well, too. He services his customers, he visits them monthly, he constantly presses them out of their comfort zone by trying different categories and goes beyond normal duties to ensure they get the best possible experience. Dan knows only doing what is expected won’t get him to the top. Can’t wait to see year two.”

“Grinder of the Year” in the west goes to Momentum Sales & Marketing

“Second year Grinder award winner!” exclaimed Klement. “Momentum, lead by Hector Mena, Jimmy Bradfield, and new to the team, Shawn Simpson, continues to press for every customer they do business with. They also continually hunt for new customers in their respective markets. This first-class team strives to be the best each and every day, not just the end of the month or quarter. This team smashed their sales goal for 2016 and we cannot wait to see what they do in 2017 and beyond.”

“Rep of the Year” is awarded to MURFCO

“This three-man team…owner Dan Murphy, and right hand men Randy Bowen and Steve Parsley…have achieved the triple double!” continued Klement. “Having the most number of independent dealers in the U.S. in their territory, they also added the most amount of new accounts this year (distributor and independent), had the highest yielding margin, and accomplished our sales goals. Murfco practices being best in class, just like Rockford Corp does. They exemplify what we want all our team members to do and that is why we have chosen them as our Rep of the Year for 2017.”

Klement concluded, “This was not an easy list to choose. We are counting on all of our reps to provide the best service possible to dealers in their respective markets. We are looking for 2017 to be another breakout year for CrimeStopper, and are excited to have this team in the field promoting our complete product portfolio.”

The unit works with virtually all existing washer/wiper systems. The Hydroblast is connected, in-line, with the existing windshield washer hose at a point between the washer pump and washer nozzles, and then mounted in any direction.

Once the unit is activated the washer fluid inside its heating chamber will be heated and kept within pre-determined temperature limit of 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), so there is always hot fluid inside the unit’s heating chamber which can be used by a driver for cleaning and de-icing the windshield. MSRP: $199.00

The BSD-754 is a blind spot detection system designed for use on most vehicles. The system uses four sensors (two front and two rear) to cover all four corners of the vehicle. When the turn signals are activated, the BSD-754 will activate and if there is a vehicle in any of your blind spots, the sensors will pick up the vehicle and alert the driver with two LED indicators as well as audible tones from a buzzer inside the vehicle. The BSD system works well for all applications such as driving down city streets or highways, parking or making simple turns. MSRP: $229.95

SV-9164 OEM Replacement Style Mirror with 4.3-inch LCD Screen and Built-in Parking Assist

The SV-9164 is a replacement style rear view mirror that will not only give the driver a 4.3-inch monitor to view a backup camera, that is included but also comes with a full rear parking assist system to let the driver know how close they are coming to a potential hazard. The mirror comes included with a 170 degree back-up camera and four ultrasonic sensors that mount in the rear bumper. The mirror's screen will display the camera as well as the sensor distance readings when the vehicle is shifted into reverse. MSRP: $349.95

This is a great piece for any vehicle with blind spots as you can mount cameras in locations that would allow you to view what may be otherwise impossible to see. It is a highly versatile system ideally suited for both exterior and interior cameras.”

The VSMC-1000 is a multi-channel video switcher that offers four video inputs that can be triggered by four independent 12 volt triggers (left turn signal, right turn signal, reverse lights and ignition) with all of the cameras sending the video out of a single standard 75 Ohm video cable. Users can also connect a backup camera to the system and have all the video outputs to a single monitor.

“We recommend that when using the last input that you connect the trigger to ignition, which will allow that camera to be on at all times but when any of the other cameras are triggered they will override the ‘front’ camera input,” Klement continued. “This allows you to see left or right side blind spots as well as what’s behind you when you are backing up.”

VSMC-1000 features include:

  • 4 video inputs
  • 4 trigger inputs
  • 1 video output
  • Auto switching on reverse and turn signal input
  • Front input can be on when all other cameras are off

“Howard has built hundreds of business relationships and developed deep friendships throughout his long tenure in the industry,” said Rockford Corporation President and CEO Bill Jackson. “He is known as a field intensive guy and a person who has a work ethic that is second to none.

There are too many people to recognize for helping us along the way, but we do thank each and every one of them. And now, seeing what Rockford is putting into the business allows me to retire knowing Crimestopper is in good hands.”

Jackson concluded, “We are sad to see Howard leave the organization. He has been a great partner and has built a fabulous reputation in the industry. I am sure Howard is looking forward to improving his golf handicap and relaxing.
