Dave Weiner, CEO of Marketing Support Inc., an integrated marketing agency, has been honored by InSinkErator for 50 years of service to the company.
Weiner has worked with InSinkErator and its various business groups on advertising and public relations programs since 1958. InSinkErator President Jerry Ryder recently hosted a surprise reception to honor Weiner, inviting many of his former and current industry associates.
"InSinkErator was a wonderful company to work with, from the beginning of my career," Weiner said. "The culture and attitude were unequaled. Back in the 1950s and 1960s when the disposer was trying to gain traction as a kitchen convenience, we focused on the plumbing contractor. It was challenging work because there were at least 10 other brands competing in the marketplace at the time, and InSinkErator was not the industry leader it is today.”
Weiner recalled establishing MSI in 1961 with InSinkErator as its first and only client. The firm has grown to nearly $100 million in billings, handling a variety of clients along the way from Sam's Club to Rubbermaid to Elkay.
“None of this would have been possible without InSinkErator,” he added.
Ryder said that Weiner’s contribution has been essential to InSinkErator’s success.
“Dave has been a valuable business partner and friend of InSinkErator for a very long time. We honor his many contributions to our success as well as his enduring loyalty.”
