#TeamSonny headed out to Denver, Colorado this week for the annual Thomas Built Buses Dealer Meeting. Every year, Thomas Built dealers from all over the United States and Canada come together to collaborate with one another, discuss industry changes and trends, and learn about new and upcoming technology, such as Thomas’ first electric bus, the eC2. To conclude the two-day event, dealers attended the President’s Club Banquet where top honors were awarded to dealers and their employees for exceptional accomplishments throughout the year.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Sonny Merryman parts team achieved Gold level status, the highest ranking possible. Deputy Parts Manager, Chad Waller, accepted the award on behalf of the Sonny Merryman parts team. Sonny Merryman operates four locations with parts distribution throughout the state and employs five outside parts sales representatives and more than 10 parts analysts.

Out of more than 60 trainers throughout North America, Daniel Droog, Sonny Merryman Trainer, was named the 2018 Trainer of the Year, the greatest level of distinction for a Thomas Trainer. This is the second time Daniel has been awarded this top honor since he became the Sonny Merryman Trainer in 2014. Daniel offers training to technicians and drivers all across Virginia both on-site and at customer locations.

Sonny Merryman again achieved President’s Club Platinum status, joining the ranks of the most elite Thomas Built Buses dealers in the United States and Canada. The night concluded with Sonny Merryman being awarded the Midwest Region Dealer of the Year distinction for its exceptional commitment to customer support, landing the company among the top five dealers in the entire Thomas Built Buses network. This is the second consecutive year Sonny Merryman has been recognized as one of the top five dealers.
