Chris Vernon, MAS, President and Co-CEO of The Vernon Company, has been recognized among the Counselor’s Power 50, the annual ranking of the most powerful executives in the advertising specialty market. Once again, Vernon ranks 43rd on the Power 50, marking the ninth consecutive year he has made this prestigious list. Mr. Vernon is the only Iowan ever to be recognized in the ASI Power 50 rankings.

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 leadership and health/growth of their companies.

“I feel privileged to be recognized with many of my successful peers,” said Vernon. “I am extremely lucky to work with hundreds of dedicated team members helping to make Vernon a very special & successful place to work. I’m proud of our collaborative management processes & our efforts to empower people to reach above and beyond in creating and executing winning campaigns for our valued AE’s and clients. And though it’s my name on the list, I am really representing everyone at Vernon. It’s definitely a full team effort.”
