Pasquale Trozzolo Wins American Advertising Federation's Silver Award
"Tell me who you go with, and I'll tell you who you are." It’s an old Pasquale Trozzolo adage, translated from its Italian origins and delivered with wisdom. Those lucky enough to go with Trozzolo were beaming with pride as he accepted the American Advertising Federation's 2017 Silver Medal Award.
The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award was established to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards and creative excellence. Pasquale Trozzolo took home the prestigious honors in 2017, with a packed house of family and friends in attendance.
The AAF recognized Trozzolo for his entrepreneurial spirit, venturing out to create a newsletter shop and building it into a marketing agency and consultancy with deep ties to the local community and a penchant for pushing buttons.
His reception was laden with references to a competitive streak a mile wide, and a deep dedication to family. With Trozzolo being a former racecar driver and current business partner to his son, Angelo, you could say the proof is in the pudding.
The night celebrated two other talented individuals for their achievements. Jordan Bell of MMGY Global won Young Professional of the year, and Katy Hornaday of Barkley was named Creative Professional of the Year. After congratulating his fellow honorees, Trozzolo graciously accepted the Silver Medal Award, dealing credit in large portions to his family, friends and talented team.
After a night of handshakes, applause and pictures, it's safe to assume that Pasquale Trozzolo did what he typically does with his trophies: put it in a box somewhere and continued to push forward. Going with only the boldest and brightest, and delivering wisdom in spades along the way.
