Thule, the world leader in sports utility transportation, recently recognized Y.P.S. Inc. of Seattle, WA with Agency of the Year honors. The Y.P.S. team of Ned Johnson, Kathy Southard, Steve Plass, and Rob Scott were recognized for the strong sales and service they demonstrated in 2005, in which they pioneered new accounts, grew existing accounts, and expanded into new channels.

Thule also recognized Park City based Dave Clopp of Kahl & Partners as Associate of the Year for his work in the Utah market. Nick Henjum, principle of Tsunami Sales in Southern California was recognized as Rookie of the Year.
