Hills Scoops Williams Sound International Awards

Hills has been awarded the Williams Sound International Distributor of the Year Award at their recent conference in Minnesota.

The award was just one of three that were showered on Hills at the event, with the other two being 2014 Territory Growth Award (Hills growth rate obliterated the competition) and the Out of the Gate Award for exceeding sales targets in the first part of 2015. Head of Hills’ AV Practice Richard Neale said he was pleased that Hills hard work was acknowledged by Williams Sound.

“Hills’ wide exposure in the hearing augmentation market and the AV team’s expertise has really helped to drive the uptake of Williams Sound products in Australia. Combined with good old fashioned hard work, we have been able to deliver great results here,” Richard Neale said.
