APH named Bill Klug as the recipient of the 2022 Auto Value Outside Sales Representative of the Year award. Klug is an outside salesperson for the Auto Value parts stores in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He was recently recognized during an awards banquet at APH’s annual Winter Conference at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Each year, Auto Value regional managers across the Midwest have the opportunity to nominate an outside sales representative they believe deserves the award.

According to Klug’s regional manager, Jarvis Ruthven, “Bill is full of drive, ambition, fortitude and possesses a can-do attitude. However, what truly sets him apart is his dedication to his customers, which he treats like family and close friends. He is one-of-a-kind and a true inspiration in the Coulee Region. Congratulations to Bill on receiving this well-deserved award.”

Klug has been a part of the automotive aftermarket since the early 1980s, and officially became a member of the Auto Value team in 2014, after United Auto Supply was acquired by APH.

When not at work, Klug enjoys spending time with his wife, Sue, and their family. He also takes pleasure in hunting, fishing and attending sporting events.
