2011 Sales Qualification Championships

Some of you know I was the 2010 Volkswagen Sales Qualifications national champion last year (I call it “the most awesome VW salesman in the world contest”) and if you know that, you know I was stressing out a bit hoping I at least made it to the finals for this year.  I really wanted to prove that the first year wasn’t an accident, or a mistake on the judges part!  Well semi-finals were in Dallas last week, and I found out this morning that I made it to the finals!

I know the competition was tougher as more than twice as many of VW’s 4500-ish salespeople entered, but I’m grateful I made it through!  Finals are back in Florida this coming January, so wish me luck!  Thank you very much to my customers for all the encouragement and letting me practice my “Volkswagen-ness” on you!

Helloooooo from Florida!

Hello! As you already know (if you’re on my Facebook page!) I’m currently in Florida for the “Most Awesome VW Salesman in the World!” contest. Also known as, (only known as really!) the Sales Qualification Championships.

Just a teaser, the Amarok picture? Its here, its awesome, and its not coming to America, sorry. It is an amazing truck though, and I’m doing my best to single-handedly convince VW to bring it to the US! VW just had it out for all of us sales and service folks to drool over. 4×4, diesel, I’d take 2 if they brought it here!  [Update] I found out why VW doesn’t bring it here.  There’s an old law dubbed the “Chicken Tax” that imposes a 25% Tariff on light trucks manufactured outside the US.  Originally discovered this on www.askavwsalesguy.com, learn more about silly government here.

Day one of competition is down, one more to go to see who is the “best” salesman in the US! Of course I’m hoping I win! Thanks for all the well wishes and encouragement!
