During the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market a couple weeks back, where she debuted dozens of fabulous fall arrivals from Pine Cone Hill, Dash & Albert, and Fresh American, Annie received some surprise kudos: she was named the 2014 Career Achiever in the ICON HONORS, sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta, which celebrates the best in global innovation and superior achievement in the home and gift industry.
Annie faced some pretty stiff competition, but she was ultimately chosen for leading Pine Cone Hill through two decades of unprecedented growth with her distinctive approach to elegant yet down-to-earth products for the home. She says, “It is truly special to be recognized among my talented peers in the home and gift industry, but I am only a small and passionate part of the spirited, creative community that has defined Pine Cone Hill over the past twenty years. I would like to share this honor with the buyers, sales representatives, showroom owners and managers, and my entire staff in Pittsfield, all of whom deserve to be celebrated on this momentous occasion for the company.”
