MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. —MGK announced Andy Sturgis is the company’s “Key Man” in 2012.

Andy Sturgis received MGK’s 2012 “Key Man” award during Pest World in Boston.  Sturgis is MGK’s Misting Market Lead and Southwest Territory Manager (western 2/3 of Texas and Oklahoma, as well as New Mexico and Colorado).

The award recognizes the territory manager that most embodies MGK’s team selling philosophy.  Those values (in order of priority) are: Contribution to and Implementation of MGK Strategies; commitment to personal growth and skill improvement; support of other sales team members; and success within their territory.

Sturgis has been a core contributor to the development of MGK’s sales and marketing strategies.  “In his role as Misting Market Lead, Andy sets a high standard of service to the industry while actively collaborating with multiple functional groups in MGK,” says Mike Burkett, national sales manager for MGK.  

Not content to rest on his laurels, Sturgis embraces new opportunities for professional skill development and actively integrates new concepts into his role as territory manager.  “Andy continues to raise his skills and performance with his accounts, while reaching out to assist other MGK Territory Managers,” says Jeff Dean, MGK’s Western Region Sales Manager.  “We are proud of his accomplishments and are pleased to recognize his positive impact within MGK and the industry.”

Sturgis joined MGK in December 2007 as Misting Specialist.  In November 2010 he transitioned to his current role as Territory Manager and Misting Market Lead.  Sturgis resides in the San Antonio, Texas area.
