Rapping It Up
Pacific Office Automation’s (POA’s) annual sales meeting was held in Portland, Oregon, January 13–14. The production values for the meeting rivaled those of most OEM meetings. The highlight of Saturday evening’s banquet and President’s Club awards ceremony was a good-natured rap competition among POA’s OEMs. Representatives from Canon, HP, Konica Minolta, Lexmark, Ricoh, and Sharp squared off against each other with Nate Tiffany, channel sales manager, Western region, Canon U.S.A., emerging as the winner. The winner was selected by Buck Schrey, POA’s head of purchasing.
