Leigh consistently outperformed her peers, winning numerous awards during her tenure at TravelClick, including Sales Specialist of the Year in 2014, and in 2016, Sales Rookie of the Year and 100% Club. At the time of her move from TravelClick to ALICE, Leigh was the local market expert for more than 300 hotels, having successfully supported and expanded a $5M book of business.
