The Chicago Advertising Federation is honoring Schafer Condon Carter President David Selby with the Silver Medal award for his career and community accomplishments.
The Silver Medal is the highest individual honor awarded by the organization. Previous winners include: Rishad Tobaccowala (2013, DigitasLBi and Razorfish); John H. Johnson (2006, Johnson Publishing); Jack Klues (2005, Starcom MediaVest Group); Bob Scarpelli (2004, DDB Chicago); Rick Fizdale (2000, Leo Burnett); Tom Burrell (1997, Burrell Communications Group); and Keith Reinhard (1983, Needham Harper & Steers/USA).
Of the win, Selby said, "I am humbled and honored by this recognition for my accomplishments in the advertising industry and contributions to our Chicago community. I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best people and organizations in the business, both agency and client, over the past 37 years, but it's ultimately the ad business that I really love, and coming to Schafer Condon Carter six years ago was the best decision I've ever made."
The award ceremony will be this Thursday, January 22 at a gala luncheon in Chicago.
Selby began his career with Leo Burnett and later became chief marketing officer for two high-visibility Chicago companies: Sears, Roebuck and Company and Potbelly Sandwich Works. He joined SCC in 2009 as President. He also serves on the Board of Managers of the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago and was recently named chairman of the Governing Board of Gilda's Club Chicago.
