Additionally, the third annual Driven to Success award was given out in memory of, and recognition of, the efforts and dedication of Bob Nimmo, who prior to his death in early 2015 served as Member Relations Representative to the Independent Stationers membership.  Bob Nimmo was a staunch supporter and defender of IS members, and worked diligently to help bring them the most value possible.  His high ideals and deep belief in the IS members caused IS to create an award, while not expressly named for him, that epitomizes all Bob did and believed.  Being “Driven”, Bob believed dealers should take advantage of the tools that are available to make their dealerships successful; being progressive in this competitive landscape; being a great corporate citizen with involvement in local communities, and so much more!  As such, nominees for this award have a high level of commitment to and participation in Independent Stationers, their communities and the independent dealer channel.  Six shareholders were nominated for this award, with CMF Business Supplies in South Plainfield, NJ being named the winner for 2016.

Mike Gentile, President and CEO of Independent Stationers said, “I was pleased to see a large number of Independent Stationers members in attendance at this year’s EPIC event.  These award winners are great supporters of our programs and services and they deserve every accolade for their dedication to using all of the tools available to them to grow their businesses.”
