The Colorado Roofing Association (CRA) held its annual ceremony banquet in February 2022. We are honored to announce that Colorado Territory Sales Representative Sue Girard received the 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award. Sue has been a member of the CRA since 1998. She was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, close to her extended family. Sue began her career in sales as a trainee in the Twin Cities and soon after was given her own territory in Davenport, Iowa, in 1991.
Sue broke barriers as a saleswoman in the roofing industry. Her professionalism, charisma, and willingness to help is noticed and appreciated by her customers. She began serving on the Education & Training Committee in 2006 and is still on the committee to this day. Sue was also on the Board of Directors from 2012–2019 and volunteered for the annual CRA golf outing.
This award means everything to Sue. “In my position, being recognized by my customers and peers is the highest compliment one can receive. It’s in the top three accomplishments of my life, along with graduating college and marrying into a family.”
JM, along with a handful of other companies, received an appreciation award for “outstanding level of support” for the CRA Awards banquet for the first 10 years it took place (2001–2010). Being a part of our state roofing organizations is important for us to better help our customers be successful and knowledgeable on what is going on in the industry. We are very proud of Sue and all of her accomplishments.
