At Viega's National Sales Meeting each year, the time comes to recognize the salespeople who have risen above the rest of the group and have proven their mettle during the past year. This year's awards ceremony was no exception.

Viega Top Gun 2007 Winners:

David Walter, regional manager — Texas, was given the highest award, Viega National Top Gun — 2007, for his dedication to Viega and excellent performance this past year. In recognition of his achievements last year, he was promoted to regional manager at the end of 2007.

In addition to Walter, Viega also recognized the following 10 Top Gun Regional Award Winners:
