Olympic Hot Tub of Seattle is the first three-time recipient of Hot Spring Spas’ Locksin Thompson Dealer of the Year Award. The company, owned by Alice Cunningham and Blair Osborn, received the distinction during the January 2015 Kick-Off meeting in Newport Beach, Calif. “It’s hard to imagine a dealer that’s more deserving of this honor than this year’s Locksin Thompson winner,” said Ryan Sessler, vice president of sales of North America for Watkins Mfg., maker of Hot Spring Spas. “This retailer is highly respected in their region and across the industry, and they are always willing to share ideas and even coach other dealers to help them succeed. They fully embrace what we all, both manufacturer and dealers, are working toward.” The award is named in memory of Locksin Thompson, a greatly respected, pioneering hot-tub dealer who passed away in 1992. It is the highest honor for a Hot Spring retailer.
