Ken Arbuckle Fellows
Ken Arbuckle, founder of the SMEI Academy of Achievement, is remembered through a program that honors his contributions to elevating the standards of sales and marketing professionals.
The Ken Arbuckle Fellow Award recognizes individuals who contribute at least $1,000 to the SMEI Academy of Achievement, which will be used to foster professionalism in the fields of sales and marketing. Arbuckle, a long-time SMEI association member who served the organization as an International Director, was renowned for his dedication to promoting leadership and advancing educational opportunities among salespeople and marketers.
The first Ken Arbuckle Fellow Award was presented to Ken posthumously, as a gold medallion and certificate were accepted by his widow, Lois Arbuckle, during an SMEI honors ceremony in 1993.
