Vermeer Corporation’s annual Founder’s Awards banquet occurs during the CONEXPO-CON/AGG trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. This annual event recognizes the top-performing salespeople across Vermeer's global dealer network. RDO Equipment Co. team members were recognized as world leaders, landing among the top three in a variety of categories.

RDO team members also took home the Parts and Service Legacy Awards, recognizing people with 20 or more years in the industry. Candidates for the Legacy Awards were nominated by their dealerships and were qualified based on professional development, teamwork and community engagement. 

"I am so grateful to be surrounded by so many winners!" said Vice President Duane Bonini. "These team members are masters of what they do. Amazingly, we had people on stage starting their careers in sales (Rookie of the Year) to Legacy Awards celebrating those with well over 20 years for both parts and service each."
