LOUISVILLE, Ky., October 18, 2012 – Lightyear Wireless, a division of Lightyear Network Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC Markets: LYNS), an established provider of data, voice and wireless telecommunication services to business and residential customers throughout North America, recently announced its 2012 Top Money Earners at its annual National Conference. The network marketing channel of the Company primarily sells Lightyear’s mobile phone products and service through its thousands of representatives across the country.
Leading the list is Eric Bechtold of Bonita Beach, Fla., who produced more than $5.2 million in sales. Since becoming a Lightyear Wireless representative in August 2010, Bechtold has recorded more than $13 million in sales.
The second-highest money-earner for 2012 is Ben Sturtevant of Santa Rosa, Calif. He is a former three-time No. 1 money-earner.
Rounding out the top three are Elmer and Michael Newkirk of West Palm Beach, Fla. The father-and-son duo joined Lightyear as founding members of the channel in 2004 and are the “up-line leaders” for Sturtevant, who is the up-line leader for Bechtold.
“We are pleased to honor Eric, Ben, Michael and Elmer for their outstanding performances this year,” said Stephen M. Lochmueller, Lightyear’s Chief Executive Officer. “These representatives have formed a dynamic team and are great examples of what we strive for with the Lightyear Wireless network marketing channel: People helping others save money and make money on their wireless phone bills. Michael and Elmer passed their successful system to Ben, who passed it to Eric, and Eric is now passing it to others.”
