December’s Sales Representatives of the Month – Kirk and Rita Johnson
Congratulations to husband and wife team, Kirk and Rita of the KRJ Sales agency - our Sales Reps of the Month!
Kirk and Rita have a combined 50 years of sales experience handling products such as industrial supplies, power tools, magnetic materials, furniture, and lighting. This duo met in 1984 and married in 1992. In 2000, they started the KRJ Sales rep agency.
Before the creation of KRJ Sales, the agency was formerly known as Duane Johnson and Associates. This agency started around 1985 with Kirk's father, Duane. Both KRJ Sales and Duane Johnson and Associates agencies have been representing fine lighting and furniture in Northern Illinois retail showrooms for 35 years!
The KRJ Sales agency mainly focuses on the Chicagoland area market, which is a very nice population with a relatively small geographic area to commute. This allows the duo to consistently visit their area lighting showroom managers and communicate with their sales staff on a regular basis. Kirk and Rita say their secret to success is in their ease of accessibility to others, and attentiveness to issues and urgent opportunities.
Kirk and Rita have represented Golden Lighting since 2009 which they say has been a pleasure and an honor. Besides having fun working in the lighting industry, Kirk likes to golf, ride his ATV and snowmobile, landscape, and garden in his free time. Outside of work, Rita enjoys traveling, scrapbooking and cooking.
Their favorite styles of lighting are transitional to modern, and they are really enjoying some of the latest trends such as mid-century modern styles, along with modern farmhouse, and updated coastal designs.
They also stated that the KRJ Sales agency is ready to kick off an exciting 2020 with Golden Lighting!
Amazing! Congratulations again to Kirk and Rita, our Sales Reps of the Month!
