At a ceremony held last night during the ASI Power Summit in Scottsdale, AZ, Counselor magazine announced its 2014 Power 50. The rankings of the most influential executives in the ad specialty industry are headed up this year by the father-son duo of Marty and Jeremy Lott from SanMar (asi/84863). Following them in the top five of the 2014 Power 50 are: Kevin Lyons-Tarr from 4imprint (asi/197045) at number two, Polyconcept’s Michael Bernstein and David Nicholson at number three, Halo Branded Solutions’ (asi/356000) Marc Simon at number four, and Proforma’s (asi/300094) Greg and Vera Muzzillo at number five.
“Everyone on this list has one thing in common: they’re a member of a very exclusive club, comprised of the most influential executives in today’s ad specialty market,” said Tim Andrews, president and CEO of ASI, at the celebratory dinner. “They not only inspire their own employees, but they make others in the market – competitors, clients and vendors alike – change the way they do business. If anyone is setting a course for this industry’s future, it’s the men and women on this list.”
First announced at a dinner last night at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale, the 2014 Counselor Power 50 is made up of the executives who have the most influence over how business is done in this market – both currently and into the future. It contains distributors and suppliers, as well as some traditional market outsiders who, no doubt, impact the industry’s operations. This year’s Power 50 also includes five newcomers to the list: Amin Rahman and Alan Tabasky from BEL USA, Mitch Mounger from Sunrise Identity (asi/339206), Mark Godsey from Gold Bond (asi/57653), and Justin Zavadil from American Solutions for Business (asi/120075).
