Oakwood Electric & Generator Grows Skills, Learns Best Practices at Generac Dealer Conference

Westmont, IL February 14, 2013 – Oakwood Electric & Generator recently attended Generac’s sixth annual dealer conference, held January 7 – 9 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Hotel in Orlando, Fla. At the conference, Generac’s president and CEO Aaron Jagdfeld educated dealers on the company’s direction and key initiatives. Russ Minick, executive vice president, residential products, introduced dealers to new programs and tools developed exclusively to help them better serve customers and manage their operations efficiently. Dealers also had the opportunity to meet with key Generac employees and network with other business owners to exchange ideas and best practices.

“Every year we attend, we walk away recharged and armed with new tools to integrate into our business” said Robert Rheintgen, President of Oakwood Electric & Generator.

Begun in 2007, Generac’s dealer conferences provide product and market training, vendor showcases, and new product introductions to Generac dealers. Over 1100 representatives of the more than 4800 Generac dealers attended this year’s four-day conference.

“We appreciate the participation of Oakwood Electric & Generator at this year’s dealer conference” said Ryan Jeske, vice president of sales, Generac. “Our dealers are our brand with our customers—they’re our feet on the street. The dealer conference is just as much an opportunity for us at Generac to learn about our customers and how we can better support our dealers as it is to share information with our dealers. Thanks to dealers like Oakwood Electric & Generator, we’re all going to be better equipped to provide the best backup power solutions to our customers.”
