Promotional bedding maker Corsicana Mattress Co., headquartered in Corsicana, Texas, honored Kathy Ranieri and Dan Thigpen with its 2018 Eagle Award, the highest honor bestowed on members of the company’s sales team.

The annual award honors Corsicana’s top sales performers for their professionalism, customer focus and sales growth during the year, the company said in a news release.

Ranieri, a territory manager who has been with Corsicana since 2013, represents the company in Colorado and Wyoming. Thigpen, a 14-year mattress industry veteran who joined the company in early 2018, is Western regional sales manager.

Michael Thompson, chief executive officer, said: “While we saw outstanding growth throughout the country last year, Kathy and Dan led the way among our sales team. They were responsible for a sales increase of more than 15% in the Western region, and their boundless energy and enthusiasm set a great example for all of us to follow.”

Thompson noted that energy and enthusiasm are two of the “five Es” that every Eagle Award winner must exhibit — the others being edge, engagement and execution.
