CLINTON, MD – From July 10th through July 13th, Thacker Caskets held its 2017 National Sales Meeting in Frederick, Maryland. During the meeting, Thacker honored various Sales Consultants, but awarded its Virginia Sales Consultant, Bucky Stevens, 2016 Salesperson of the Year.

The Sales Meeting featured not only educational training presentations from Thacker presenters, but also a keynote presentation from industry expert, Dan Isard of The Foresight Companies. In addition, Thacker Sales Consultants had the opportunity for a question & answer session with two local funeral directors and participated in a tour of Stauffer Funeral Home of Frederick, Maryland.  The Thacker Team had some fun with a company BBQ picnic on Monday night and then the following night participated in an Escape Room experience.  

On Wednesday, July 12th, Thacker held its Honors Dinner at The Wine Kitchen in Frederick, MD. During the Honors Dinner, Thacker presented five Sales Consultants awards.

Bucky Stevens was awarded Thacker Salesperson of the Year for 2016. “Bucky has been the definition of hard work since he came on board with Thacker in September 2015 – he has increased Thacker’s market share in Virginia substantially. Bucky has also made a point to quickly and diligently learn what is important to the funeral homes he serves and to continually educate himself on the industry and the issues his customers face every day,” says VP of Sales & Marketing, Danielle Thacker. She adds, “The customers of Virginia are lucky to have Bucky serving their funeral homes.”

Bucky added, “I am humbled to be named as Salesperson of the Year for Thacker. I would not be here without the support of my loyal and committed customers. I am also grateful for the hard work of the internal customer service team as well as the insight of my Sales Consultant counterparts – teamwork makes the dream work!”

In addition to the Salesperson of the Year award, Thacker also honored Bob Cullen for his 25 years of service as a Sales Consultant to funeral homes in the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York region. Bob started with the company in 1991, and 2016 marks his 25th year with the company. “At Thacker, every Sales Consultant is part of the Thacker family, but Bob is the patriarch of the family. Bob is not only committed to his customers, but also provides valuable insight and mentorship to the other Sales Consultants on the Thacker team,” said CEO of Thacker, CJ Thacker.

There were three other Sales Consultants awarded for their performance during the year of 2016. Brittney Harris of Eastern Tennessee, Laura Rosen of Eastern Michigan and Lori Anderson-Gordon of South Georgia were all awarded Thacker’s “Top Performer” awards for their consistent territory growth for the year of 2016.

CJ Thacker concluded, “I am proud to say that Thacker has grown tremendously over the years, and 2016 only continued that trajectory of growth. The dedication, commitment and hard work of our entire sales team, but specifically the ones honored have fueled Thacker’s continued success.”

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
