Ray Chellew, always one of Ocean’s top performers stood on the 2nd step of the podium again in 2011. We all know Ray wants that top step badly!

Darren Harmsworth finshed the year in a very close 3rd place in the export sales person category. We have high hopes fro Darren moving up the individual rankings.
