Connie Wilson, the founder, publisher and editor-in-chief of Modern Dog and Modern Cat, will be the 2014 recipient of Global Pet Expo’s annual “Excellence in Journalism and Outstanding Contributions to the Pet Industry Award.”
“Connie’s true passion for pets and their well being comes through in all that she’s accomplished,” Bob Vetere, president and CEO of APPA, said. “Her magazines and websites are just another way for her to share in the love we have for our pets to be active and enthusiastic group of people, which is the true essence of this award. We congratulate her on her contribution to the industry and the pet-loving population.”
Wilson will accept the award March 13 in Orlando, Fla. at the Purina Media Reception during the Global Pet Expo, presented by the American Pet Products Association and Pet Industry Distributors Association.
