Jon Stopak Wins Justin Zak Award for Sales Achievements


BigIron Auctions, rural America’s leading unreserved online auction, recently announced that Jon Stopak, independent sales representative of Duncan, NE has been awarded the Justin Zak Award for Sales Achievement. The prestigious award is given annually by BigIron to a sales representative who embodies honesty, integrity, exceptional organization skills, and efforts for continual improvement in their sales territory.

The Justin Zak Award commemorates the late Justin Zak, a leading independent sales representative and beloved colleague at BigIron. Stopak accepted the award at the 2019 National BigIron Conference in Omaha. 

“Justin had a tremendous energy and impact on all who knew him. He was one of the company’s early and most successful sales representatives who deeply cared about God, family and friends. His dedication to his BigIron customers and work ethic was a large part of his passion for excellence in everything he did in business and in life,” said BigIron’s co-founders Mark and Ron Stock.

“Independent sales representatives work with their clients daily, helping them list and sell used equipment on BigIron’s online auction site,” said BigIron CEO Andrew Pyron. “Jon Stopak is not only a high sales achiever, but exceeds expectations by being a great team player who always puts the customer first. BigIron is honored to have him as a positive influence on those around him.”

“I am so honored to be recognized for this prestigious award,” Stopak said. “After Justin left, I knew I had some big shoes to fill. I’m so grateful and honored to have been given this award named after him.”

Stopak has been an independent sales representative for three years, and covers the counties of Platte, Polk, and Merrick, NE. Stopak’s work helps BigIron to connect buyers and sellers of farm, construction, and transportation equipment across the glove through unreserved online auctions.
