Chris Vernon, MAS, CEO and President of The Vernon Company, has been recognized among the Counselor’s Power 50, the annual ranking of the most powerful executives in the promotional products industry. Vernon ranks at #42 on the Power 50,  making this the 13th consecutive year he has made this prestigious list. He is the only Iowan represented on the Power 50 ranking.

The ranking is determined by a panel of editorial experts at ASI’s Counselor magazine, “the voice of the industry,” and is based on factors such as nominees’ achievements, industry influence, corporate revenue and the overall health of their respective companies.

“It’s humbling to be recognized with the Power 50 designation again this year,” noted Vernon.  “I feel extremely lucky to have hundreds of outstanding team members who make Vernon a very special place to work. I truly believe our collaborative management processes & business transparency empowers our people to reach above and beyond in creating and executing winning campaigns for our valued clients. It’s definitely a full team effort.”
