The new T660 was the focus of Kenworth's Walk-Around Sales Competition.
KIRKLAND, Wash. — Jim Bednar, truck salesman for Custom Truck Sales in Winnipeg, recently captured the Canadian title in the Kenworth T660 Walk-Around Sales Competition.
The competition focused on the new aerodynamic Kenworth T660 model.
Bednar won his district title and then took first place in the Canadian championships to earn a trip to the North American finals held at the recent Kenworth Dealer Meeting in Tucson, Ariz. Bednar also won the Canadian walk-around title last year when the competition focused on Kenworth’s T800 vocational model.
During the competition, participants walk around the truck to discuss key features, advantages and benefits and are graded on their presentation.
In addition to Bednar, other Kenworth district winners in Canada are Corey Prediger, GreatWest Kenworth in Calgary; Rick Kader, Tandet Kenworth in Kingston, Ont.; John Sheridan, Toronto Kenworth in Sudbury, Ont.; and Pierre Trottier, Kenworth Montreal.
The Canadian championship held in Quebec City, was conducted in English and French with bilingual judges.
“Kenworth dealer salespeople work closely with customers to help them make informed purchase decisions and get the right Kenworth truck spec’d and built for their application,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales. “The intense walk-around competition provides Kenworth salespeople with an in-depth knowledge of the T660’s features, benefits and advantages. This knowledge will enable them to help customers seeking a productive, aerodynamic, and stylish on-highway vehicle spec’d for either fleets or owner-operators.”
The Kenworth T660 is available with Kenworth’s 86-, 72-, 62- and 38-inch AeroCab sleepers, 60- and 42-inch modular sleepers, and in a day cab configuration.
