Three FLEET OWNER editors have been honored for their work last year with Editorial Excellence Awards presented by the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).
Topping the list of winners is editor in chief Jim Mele, who received a Bronze National Award, as well as a Gold East Region Award, in the “signed editorial” category (for publications with circulation over 80,000). Mele was honored for his “Editor's Page” in the June and July 2000 issues of FLEET OWNER.
Receiving “Silver” Awards in the East Region were executive editor David Cullen in the “regular column, staff written” category and columnist Ken Simonson in the “regular column, contributed” category. Cullen was honored for his “Driver's Lounge” in the August and October 2000 issues and Simonson for his “Bottom Line” in the January and March 2000 issues of FLEET OWNER.
According to ASBPE, its annual awards competition recognizes excellence in editorial and design of business magazines. All told, the competition this year encompassed 2,529 entries.
