Chaos Headwear is proud to announce that Marty Roth of the New England sales region (ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, RI) was recently awarded top honors in her field at the Season of Celebration, held during the New England Winter Sports Representatives, Inc. (NEWSR) conference in Providence, RI on Feb. 9, 2010.

The Paul Kailey Award is given each year to a rep who exemplifies integrity, professionalism and is dedicated to retailers and industry, said Maureen Bliss, executive director of the NEWSR.

The award was initiated by, current member rep Peter Kailey in 1996 in honor of his father, Paul Kailey, who was a Maine retailer and a New England representative. The award is a lifetime achievement award. It is given annually at the Winter Sports Show.

Marty Roth has been a member of NEWSR since 1981.

I was overwhelmed to be so honored,” she said.  “I want to thank my husband and partner, Russ, for his belief in me and to my fellow reps, New England retailers, companies/sales managers, and friends who are so happy for me.  I could not have been a rep for the last 30 years without their support, guidance and trust. Roth adds that some skiing and a bright future are ahead, what’s next?  Im going skiing!  It’s a great life and business!

Dominic Chenelia the US marketing and sales director for Chaos remarks, I was lucky enough to be out at the Providence show, and Russ told me that it was going to be a special night, as Marty had won the award, and she did not know. When it was announced it was a very heartfelt and deserving reception for Marty. Congratulations to her and we are proud she is a Chaos rep.
Roth was recently recognized at the SIA Show in Denver Co, by Chaos Headwear, where she received a bonus and recognition for her 2009 sales. The Chaos Rep. award is based on set sales criteria for 2009: most new accounts, most pre-season orders and re-orders, co-brands, branding and merchandising. Roth came in a close second to a colleague in the Pacific NW territory, Sam Adams.
