NASHVILLE — Jasper Contractors Inc. gave away a 2019 Corvette to its top-performing seller at the International Roofing Expo 2019 in Nashville on Tuesday.

Joseph Palladino was recognized as the company's most recent top-performing revenue earner, earning him a 2019 "Jasper-red" Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. It was the second year in a row the company gave away a Corvette to its top seller.

The company said earning a Corvette is one aspect of an ongoing incentive program available to every single account manager at Jasper Contractors whose cumulative sales increase the company's revenue by $5 million or more. Account managers have the opportunity to earn other incentives as they achieve successive tiers of cumulative revenue.

Prior to joining the Jasper Contractors sales team, Palladino appeared on Chef Gordon Ramsay's culinary television series, "MasterChef," and was named one of the top 100 amateur cooks in America. As a member of the Jasper team, Palladino reached the $5 million milestone in less than two years.

"Joe's hard work and commitment to his customers earned him this award," said Brian Wedding, CEO and founder of Jasper Contractors. "We choose to honor Joe at this year's International Roofing Expo in order to elevate these values to the highest level of recognition our industry can provide. We feel the accomplishments of successful roofing contractors should be promoted much more aggressively."

A long-term presence at the IRE, Jasper Contractors actively promotes the roofing industry across the various markets served by the company. The company recently completed the acquisition of One Source Roofing, a provider of commercial roof management and related services, and is meeting with additional parties during the expo.
