PRLog - Jan. 2, 2013 - CARLSBAD, Calif. -- The annual Top Sales & Marketing Awards contest has been created to hail “the heroes” of the sales and marketing space; to laud those companies and individuals who have gone that extra mile; who have been unafraid to challenge paradigms; who have had the courage to pioneer, when others remained wedded to the status quo.
