Jeppesen recently honoUred both its 2012 Dealer of the Year and 2012 Distributor of the Year, recognizing the vital role these partners played in sales of   C-MAP 4D, C-MAP NT+, C-MAP MAX, PC-Planner, and other Jeppesen electronic charting products in the North American boating market.

This marks the second year Jeppesen has honored its Dealer of the Year — and the second consecutive year that Stamford, Connecticut-based Landfall has taken the honor. Landfall, one of the largest chart dealers in North America, received the distinction because of its dedicated service to marine electronics consumers through its brick-and-mortar storefront and active online/catalog mail order business. Jeppesen Channel Manager Jim McQuade from Jeppesen presented Landfall’s Sean Fleischman and Henry Marx with a unique crystal globe trophy in a special ceremony at Landfall’s headquarters.

In a separate ceremony at this year’s Vancouver International Boat Show, Jeppesen also recognized its 2012 North American Distributor of the Year with a similar crystal globe trophy. For the unprecedented sixth year in a row, the honor went to Payne’s Marine Group, a leading marine products distributor headquartered in Victoria, British Columbia with additional offices in Vancouver, Burnaby and Burlington, Ontario. Bob Simpson and Karen Webb from Payne’s Marine Group accepted the honor.

“It’s no coincidence that Payne’s has been our top North American distributor six years running,” said Roger Brudenell, Jeppesen North American Channel Manager, Light Marine. “They’ve earned the trust and respect of the marine dealers they serve with their knowledgeable sales team, and it’s our pleasure to recognize their success.”
