A Very Happy ASI Anniversary

Thursday May 24, 2012 | Filed under: News About ASI

I just celebrated a very special day – my fifth anniversary with ASI as the company’s chief executive officer.

ASI recruited me to become ASI’s president in 2003, and on May 23, 2007, I was promoted to   president and chief executive officer. I can still remember my very first day with the company.

As expected, I was a little nervous about meeting the entire staff at a special all-company meeting called to introduce me. I’d been warned that no one ever asked any questions at such meetings – but I was determined to change that. I really wanted to establish an open door policy with employees and for them to always feel free to ask me anything.

I’m happy to report that not only did they ask me questions at that first encounter – but that the questions (and the drop ins!) haven’t stopped.

In the photo, I’m posing with ASI’s chairman, Norman Cohn, whose family got me a delicious cake and shared the sentiment below:

“ASI, the Cohn Family, and the Advertising Specialty Industry are fortunate that Tim’s leadership continues to help the industry grow by ‘Promoting Success.’ ”

I’m most proud of the way ASI has become the industry leader in the development and management of the very latest products and of our reputation for service to our customers. I can honestly say I still love coming to work every day and that I’m looking forward to many years to come.
