The industry turned out last night for Zumiez’s annual 100K party in Keystone, Colorado, which honors the top sales people from stores in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Industry executives, brand founders, athletes and Zumiez employees mingled during the night as the company honored the No. 1 salesman – Daniel Bovee, who works in the Zumiez store on 34th Street in New York City.

Daniel sold $773,910 worth of goods in 2015. The brands showered him with gifts, including trips to London and Japan, thousands of dollars in cash, and a 1966 Mustang from Vans.

In a sign of the tough retail climate, the No. 1 sales amount was down from the $1 million range last year.

We have lots of photos from the evening in our slide show.
