Two Sales Advisors at Universal Truck and Trailer, Danny Corbin and Greg Marr, have been awarded with the prestigious Leland James Award.

The Leland James Elite Sales Achievement has been recognized since 2003 and celebrates Dealer Sales Professionals who excel in their work. Award recipients were chosen for on-highway, medium duty and vocational sales, as well as total number of customers and training certifications. To achieve “Elite Award Winner” status, the recipient has to sell at least 80 Freightliner trucks.

Both Danny and Greg have a history of going above and beyond in their work; this is Greg’s fourth time and Danny’s fifth time winning.

It is a pleasure to work with both of them and on behalf of the company I would like to express our sincere congratulations.” - Brian Gilliland, Director, Sales & Marketing, Universal Truck and Trailer.
