Southgate, Mich — Chicago-based Beltone Electronics has announced the presentation of its President’s Cup Award to Daniel and Jean Fletcher at its 2008 National Meeting recently held in Monterey, Calif.  Since 1958, Beltone’s highest honor, the President’s Cup, is awarded annually to hearing care practitioners who demonstrate exceptional patient care, community involvement and professional business practices. 

“This award recognizes those practitioners whose professionalism and care go well beyond their office and into the community.  The Fletchers’ leadership and dedication over the past 20 years is the ultimate example of this,” says Todd Murray, President, Beltone.   “They continue to find unique ways to give back to their community.” 

Daniel and Jean Fletcher have worked with Beltone for 20 years and became full-time business owners in 2001.  They now have five full-time offices, two part-time offices and service more than 20 senior homes.  The Fletchers belong to the International Hearing Society, as well as Michigan and Ohio Hearing Societies.  Daniel is board certified in hearing instrument sciences and they are members of the Downriver Michigan, Toledo, Findlay, and Lima chambers of commerce.  In addition, they support local charities and sponsor high school sports teams in the cities they have offices.

“We’re honored to receive the President’s Cup Award and glad to know that Beltone recognizes the value we place in our customers and the integrity of our practice,” said Daniel Fletcher.  “We would like to thank everyone in our communities for 20 years of strong support.”

In addition to the award presented to the Fletchers, Beltone presented performance awards to other top practitioners from its offices internationally, Canada and throughout the U.S. 

The meeting provided Beltone hearing care practitioners from around the world with the opportunity to share ideas and participate in educational seminars on new technologies.  Beltone also announced the release of the new Beltone Reach — the industry’s first digital hearing aid with “Automatic Smart Beam Steering.”
