Allentown, PA - At the recent ATAS International employee appreciation
and awards dinner, Jared Gorman, CSI, and Ernie Kortvely were announced as the recipients of the annual Malan S. Parker Award, which recognizes the top sales team of 2019.
Malan S. “Steve” Parker was an exemplary ATAS Product Representative in the New England territory, and he passed away in 2002. Since then, to honor his hard work and dedication to ATAS, the sales team of the year award is now known as the
Malan S. Parker Award.
This is the first year that Gorman has won this award. His territory includes eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. Gorman joined ATAS in 2016 and has over 15 years of industry experience in a wide variety of roles, including distribution sales
and management, estimating, roofing, and carpentry. He has a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, MA. Gorman is the membership chairperson for the Boston Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute
Kortvely is the inside technical salesperson for the territory. He has over 22 years of industry experience, and most of those years were as an ATAS employee. Kortvely was a product representative for ATAS in the Mid-Atlantic region for many years, prior
to his current position. He earned the LEED Green Associate certification in 2010 and the CSI Construction Documents Technologist certification in 2011.
Gorman and Kortvely were chosen as this year’s winners for their teamwork in overall sales growth and observance of corporate goals and objectives. They obtained the highest level of sales in a year for the eastern New England territory, consistently
grew sales over the last three years, and diversified their product channels. Kortvely’s support of Gorman and their customers within the region was instrumental to the growth realized in that area. Both Gorman and Kortvely have certification
in metal roof installation from the Metal Construction Association (MCA).
“Jared and Ernie’s dedication and hard work in 2019 was outstanding, resulting in continuous years of sales growth”, said Mark Bus, National Sales Manager for ATAS. “We have great customers in the eastern New England market, and
Jared and Ernie provide exceptional service to maintain their loyalty. Jared’s background within distribution and the trades was also very instrumental in growing the business, along with driving the benefits of ATAS within the architectural
community. We congratulate both on this well-deserved award and for their dedication and continued service to ATAS.”
