At Saturday night’s Rockies Award Show, Russ Stoddard, Founder and President of Oliver Russell, was awarded the AAF Silver Medal from the Idaho Advertising Federation.
Russ, who founded Oliver Russell in 1991, was recognized for his tireless efforts in the marketing and advertising industry, as well as his dedication to giving back to the community through the agency’s O-pen Purse initiative. That initiative has, to date, given back over $1.2 million dollars in financial and in-kind support to deserving charities throughout the area.
Russ, in his typical laid-back style, was quick to point out that much of the success that he’s had over the years was due to the incredibly talented people that he’s had the fortune to work with over the years. He kept his speech brief, but congratulations seemed to be flowing throughout the night.
It was a well-deserved recognition, and an excellent choice by the Silver Medal Committee.
