Chuck Fandos, Facilisgroup CEO, was named the promotional product industry’s most influential person Monday night as Counselor magazine unveiled its Power 50 list.
According to Counselor, Advertising Specialty Institute’s (ASI) promotional products industry publication, Fandos rocketed from number 20 in 2016 to the top of the 2017 list for three main reasons: high ratings, continued leadership of Facilisgroup – representing companies with half a billion dollars in annual promo sales – and mentorship of rising leaders throughout the industry. Fandos has been involved in the industry for 30 years.
Dave Vagnoni, editor-in-chief of Counselor magazine said in a press release, “Our 2017 rankings make up the definitive list of the market’s biggest players, whose individual and collective decisions chart a course for everyone else. They’re the ones developing and executing ideas, they’re the ones others turn to when they need advice, and they’re the ones people go to when they want to make deals.”
The Power 50 rankings were determined by surveys of the general industry, last year’s Power 50 and ASI magazine editors.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized within the industry. Being able to serve as a mentor to other business leaders allows me to do and share what I love,” said Fandos.
Facilisgroup congratulates our numerous industry colleagues and supplier partners who were also ranked on the Power 50.
