Gary Lofstrom – 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year Award Winner, as awarded by KC-IABC

I was honored yesterday by my peers within the Kansas City chapter of International Association of Business Communicators (kc.iabc.com) as the 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year. The award was presented at the annual Business Communicators Summit. I am grateful for the recognition and want to say again that IABC has been a great professional organization for so many marketing communications professionals to cultivate their skills and achieve their personal and career goals.

Per our chapter’s guidelines, the Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognizes the achievements of our industry’s self-employed professionals. These individuals inspire us with their entrepreneurial spirit by organizing, managing and assuming the risks of running a business and demonstrate:

  • A strong book of clients
  • An ongoing, active role in IABC
  • Assistance and support to other communications professionals – both organizational and independent
  • A position of respect among their fellow entrepreneurs
  • Evidence of business stability
