Hill received a Gold Milestone Award in further recognition of her sales excellence. Fellow account manager for Allegra, Dan Nekvinda, was also recognized with a Silver Milestone Award, presented annually to the top sales professionals in North America and based on providing an outstanding level of customer service and sales volume.
