The O’Rourke Sales Company Premium Division is proud to receive the Excellence in Data Entry Award from RepLink out of 95 vendor/supplier partners!
Mary from RepLink stated ”We stressed the fact that current, up-to-date data is even more critical this year than ever before… More and more resellers are counting on RepLink to show them or feed to them data that is accurate and timely… Your company was in the top ten highest scores in the industry. You should be congratulated!”
Micah VanderTuig, Director of Special Markets, states, “Maintaining accurate data is crucial to our business and with the never-ending changes we’ve experienced the past 12+ months, Brian has had his hands full keeping everything up to date and accurate. In addition to Brian’s daily labors of maintaining our data, the rest of the incentive teams’ efforts in looking out for real time changes/updating info in the portal and Jeff Willis’s inventory and IR feed updates all contributed to earning this award. Last I knew, RepLink had over 95 suppliers so to be in their top ten in 2020 is pretty impressive!”
Jake O’Rourke, Vice President, states, “This type of dedication to detail and commitment to excellence is what keeps our customers coming back and our vendor partners eager to do business with us. I am happy to say that we have one of the best teams in the industry!”

March 25, 2021
O’Rourke Sales Company (OSC) is proud to announce that the Rent One Vendor of the Year Award was awarded to Bill French, VP National Sales and leader of O’Rourke Sales Company’s rental division. This award was bestowed on Bill at the recent SKC Enterprises Inc., dba Rent One virtual annual meeting.
Having worked at OSC for almost 20 years, Bill has been instrumental in developing the rental division into the industry powerhouse that it is today. “I care about my customers and they all know it,” says Mr. French. “I am extremely proud to accept this award, but it is accepted on behalf of the entire rental team. Of particular note would be Jay Nardone, VP of Computers and Gaming and Amanda Barrows, Customer Service Representative. They both also work integrally with the SKC/Rent One team. The friendships we have developed go way beyond a working relationship. It has been our pleasure to know Larry, Sharon and Trent over so many, many years and to see all the good that they have done for their communities, customers and employees. I would be remiss if I did not also acknowledge all of the Rent One team members whom we work with on a daily basis.”
“Bill is the epitome of who we are as a company,” says Jeff O’Rourke, CEO of O’Rourke Sales Company.
“He always goes the extra, extra mile to make sure our customers are taken care of. We are very proud of the recognition that has been bestowed on Bill and thank Rent One for their business.”
