YKK AP America recognized its top performers from 2013 during its annual meeting May 6, and Kim Law, who works out of Greensboro, N.C., received the company’s Branch of the Year Award.

“The key to YKK AP’s success is investing in regional branches, like Greensboro, which support our unique local markets,” says Oliver Stepe, senior vice president of YKK AP America.

Sales representative Anthony Intintoli was awarded the President’s Award, and Cincinnati and Chicago branch manager Phil Blizzard was honored for his 18 years of service with the Journey of Excellence Award. Stepe says Blizzard, who is retiring this summer, will be remembered for his leadership and achievements to the company.

“Anthony and Phil both have a strong passion and relentless pursuit for success,” says Stepe. “Phil will leave a lasting legacy on our company, as well as the industry we serve. His continuous journey for success will be used as a platform for company growth for years to come.”
