The advertising industry’s John A. Reisenbach Foundation will present its 2015 Distinguished Citizenship Awards to three top marketing executives.
John Nitti, chief investment officer worldwide at ZenithOptimedia Group; Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of VaynerMedia and Geri Wang, president, sales and marketing, at ABC Television Network, will be honored at the foundation’s annual Gala Tribute for a Better and Safer New York on Dec. 1.
