SYL’s President, Don Forsell, Listed as PPB’s Top 15 “Best Bosses” of 2018
PPAI Media is the premier media brand behind the companies, people, ideas, and information that impact the promotional products industry. PPAI Media’s three publications- PPB Newslike, PPB Magazine, and PC Today provide industry news, expert commentary, and useful information to help professionals run a successful business.
Since 2010, PPB has been hosting an annual competition for the “Best Bosses in the Promotional Products Industry”. Each year, nominators must explain why they consider their boss to be the best. They must provide examples of how their boss has acted as a mentor, exemplified leadership, achieved success, and created a collaborative work environment.
This year’s competition ran from June 12th to July 10th, with over 100 individuals who were nominated by those who report to them. However, out of these 100 people, only 15 managers made it into the spotlight- One of them being Show Your Logo’s president, Don Forsell!
PPB’s editor, Tina Berres Fillipski, said:
“This year’s nominations were especially complimentary of bosses who coached their direct reports through problem situations and helped them develop creative solutions.”
Many of the nominations also paid tribute to bosses who were good listeners and offered encouragement.
