Chris Ruvo named ASI’s Employee of Year


The Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) of Trevose, honored four top employees during a recent online celebration, including naming Digital News Director Chris Ruvo as its 2021 Employee of the Year.
In honoring Ruvo, ASI CEO Tim Andrews said, “Whether reporting on COVID-related industry trends, staffing shortages or the supply chain crisis, Chris was instrumental in putting ASI Media on the map during an unprecedented time in history – helping earn himself and his colleagues even more prestigious national awards. His reporting substantially elevated ASI’s standing in the industry to new heights and is, frankly, of immeasurable worth. While the work he’s accomplished this last year is spectacular, this award also acknowledges the iron-clad reputation as a consummate professional Chris has built over the past decade at ASI.”
