Stan Byers to Receive the Thomas C. Wilson Lifetime Achievement Award

Awards are not always a sign of success. Things like a client’s pride in their new logo are what tell us we’re doing something right. However, the gravity of certain awards cannot be denied and deserves to be celebrated.

We’re pleased to announce that AAF Reno will be honoring our own Stan Byers with the Thomas C. Wilson Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Ad People of the Year Awards Ceremony.

The award is given to those who “have made significant contributions to advertising, been active in furthering industry standards and creative excellence,” and they must have “shown a consistently high degree of excellence in the field over time, coupled with strong community involvement.”

Sound like anyone you know? So, to what does Stan owe his success?

“All I really did was show up to work every day,” Stan said. “This award recognizes all the great clients I’ve had, the great people and places that I’ve worked with, and my family. Without them, none of this happens.”

Even though we’re honoring the life of Stan’s career, he says he’s not headed out to pasture yet.

“It’s more exciting than it’s ever been,” Stan said, “and I’m truly enjoying doing great creative more than ever.”

The award will be presented to Stan during AAF Reno’s Ad People of the Year awards ceremony, June 24 at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino. The show is open to members and nonmembers alike, so come out and support Stan for this wonderful honor!
