The award recognizes the "best of the best" in the hospitality, travel and tourism industries. The 2012 "Top 25" recipients were judged by a panel of senior industry executives for their recent work based on the following criteria: creativity and innovation; cutting edge sales or marketing campaigns; triumph in challenging situations; and sales efforts that resulted in dramatic gains.
"The ‘Top 25' is our annual hot list that celebrates the sales, marketing and revenue management leaders and innovators in our industry," said Robert A. Gilbert, CHME, CHBA, president and CEO of HSMAI. "The creative strategies, passionate dedication and sharp intelligence of these professionals have not only grown the business within their organizations but have also truly raised the bar for the hospitality industry as a whole."
"I am truly honored by this award. Even though HSMAI makes the award out to an individual, the award truly is a win for Milestone's extraordinary team and our commitment to our customers. Milestone's innovative search marketing and social media solutions generate high revenue for our customers and make the entire team look great," said Anil Aggarwal. Milestone's proven search, social, and mobile strategies has led to a successful collaboration between our team and clients resulting in over $550M in annual revenue for more than 1400 clients in Milestone's portfolio.
