Olympic Hot Tub Founders First “Ring Of Honor Award” Recipients From Hot Spring Spas
March 24, 2016
We were surprised, touched and so grateful to win this award from Hot Spring. Here’s the press release:
At its 2016 Hot Spring Experience Dealer Conference held in Coronado, California, in January, Hot Spring® Spas announced the creation of a new “Ring of Honor” award to recognize individuals for their contributions to the Hot Spring brand. Honorees are inducted into the Ring of Honor for a lifetime of achievement, as well as for traits that include passion, character, competitive spirit, and willingness to help others succeed.
The first Ring of Honor recipients, announced at the conference, are industry veterans Alice Cunningham and Blair Osborn, owners of Olympic Hot Tub in Seattle, Washington, a 32-year Hot Spring dealer. Mike Dunn, Executive Vice President of Watkins Manufacturing, maker of Hot Spring spas, presented the awards.
“Alice Cunningham is the finest retail marketer our industry has ever seen,” said Dunn. “She is still passionate about everything she does – about health and wellness, about being an excellent employer, and about the Hot Spring brand.” As Dunn told the dealers gathered for the conference, “We’ve all benefited from her contributions and willingness to share ideas.”
In presenting the Ring of Honor award to owner Blair Osborn, Dunn remarked, “Blair is one of the most educated people I have ever known with respect to operations, finance, and business systems.” Commenting on his business acumen, Dunn said, “Their operation runs like a well-oiled machine! And his passion and integrity are without question.”
Alice Cunningham responded “32 years ago we set out to sell the best hot tub brand money could buy. In all that time our commitment to Hot Spring Spas has never wavered, nor has their commitment to excellence. We are so fortunate to have a product that gives people joy and makes their lives better. We are proud and humbled to be recognized by Watkins Manufacturing, part of Fortune 500 company, Masco Corporation, as the first recipients of the Hot Spring Spa Ring of Honor Award. This award is shared with our incredible Olympic team as well as our loyal customers who have supported us for so many years. “
Thank you Hot Spring Spas!
