Jan. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Des Plaines Office Equipment (DPOE), the Chicago area’s leading provider of office equipment solutions since 1955, has received the 2011 Elite Dealer Award from The Week in Imaging, a national e-zine which each year seeks nominations for and then selects top office equipment dealers from all across the United States.

The Week in Imaging is a national industry e-zine, run by veteran industry writer/editor Scott Cullen, who this year announced, “This is an award that honors the best and the brightest in the dealer community. We all know it’s a shrinking community, but on a positive note, many of those who remain are stronger than ever and holding their own against some of the most intense competition they’ve ever faced. In narrowing down our selections we focused on growth, innovative marketing and sales programs, community leadership, and leadership within the industry. What we’ve settled on are a group of dealers who we are proud to call Elite.”

There were only 40 dealers nationally who qualified for this designation. This is the fifth year that DPOE has been selected for this award.

“This is one of the more sought-after awards within our industry because the competition is so intense,” said Chip Miceli, President of DPOE.  “Scott Cullen does a great job with The Week in Imaging and helps raise awareness of our industry issues.”

He added, “We understand the importance of staying at the cutting edge of technology and are pleased to be recognized in this way.”
