Recent graduates named top 10 sales & marketers of the year

Hadlee Selman, who graduated with her Bachelor’s in Marketing in Spring 2020 and assumed a position on’s Paid Social Marketing Team after graduation, has recently been honored as one of the 10 Utah Business Sales & Marketers of the Year. The SAMY (Sales & Marketers of the Year) awards recognize professionals who have had a measurable impact on their company’s bottom line and go above and beyond to share their company’s visions.

She has been joined by five other U alumni, who have been recognized alongside Selman, including Julie DeForest, John Huntinghouse, Josh Webber, Megan Bowen, and Sierra Forsberg. Four are Eccles School alumni.

Less than two years ago, Selman was involved in the Eccles School community as a student leader, especially known for her involvement in Women in Business, as a Business Career Ambassador for Business Career Services (BCS), and as a Social Media Lead for the Corporate Outreach department. This achievement goes to show the impact of the Eccles School and the ways Eccles provides professional success, even after graduation.

Kudos to Career Coaches Polly Unruh, Colby Brown, and all others who have impacted the professional development and success of marketing majors. Once again, congratulations to this year’s honorees, and may they continue their positive marketing journey!
