Dealers of the Year 2011


Window & Door is pleased to announce its 2011 Dealers of the Year. Honored for Overall Excellence this year are Walker Windows from California and Southwest Exteriors from Texas.

The magazine has also recognized five Focused Excellence category winners—window and door retailers and distributors that stand out in the areas of marketing, installation, customer service, retail/showroom program, community service and innovative thinking.  All winners are featured in Window & Door's October/November edition.

“The businesses we honor this year as part of the 2011 Dealers of the Year program exhibit tenacity and steadfastness that is truly commendable,” says Christina Lewellen, senior editor for Window & Door. “Each of our winners has risen above market challenges and economic conditions to thrive by focusing on what they do well and executing their business models consistently. These companies exemplify the innovation and passion that runs deep in the retail channel of the window and door industry.”

"Our 2011 Dealers of the Year not only represent the best of our industry, they each have a lot to teach about best practices," adds John Swanson, Window & Door editor/associate publisher.
