Edward G. Lott, Payne Family Homes Vice President-Sales & Marketing, has been honored with the Hugh L. Pettus Award for an unprecedented third year in a row by the Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri. The prestigious award is presented to the HBA’s Sales & Marketing Council builder member who does the most to further the council’s goals. No other SMC member has ever won the award three consecutive times.
According to Pat Sullivan, Executive Vice President of the Home Builders Association, “Ed brings a passion for learning to the HBA Sales and Marketing Council and it is contagious. Others become inspired by watching how dedicated, how determined, how selfless, Ed is with his quest for success. It becomes obvious he is not seeking success only for himself, but all of those around him. He truly embodies with his professional approach, the meaning of this prestigious industry award.”
Payne Family Homes has prospered under Ed Lott’s marketing direction, tripling sales revenue in 2010. Sales are on track to increase another 25 percent in 2011. Payne has especially benefited from Lott’s exceptional experience, industry knowledge and dedication to customer service and he is recognized in the home-building industry for his key role in expanding Payne Family Homes in the face of a dismal economy by assembling a superb, energetic sales team. Lott’s sales leadership catapulted Payne from being the area’s 10th largest builder to a spot in the top 5 in just one year, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.
