The inaugural Mark Chamberlain DiFizen of the Year award was presented to Jim Rudnick at The Big DiF on March 29, 2012.
Jim is someone you should know if you've been to any iF event - he's been at them all. In fact, he usually shows up early!
Though we are indebted to hundreds of supporters, no person that doesn't receive a paycheque from iF has contributed more time and effort to advancing our success than Jim Rudnick.
Jim is a longtime Waterdown resident and a great supporter of Hamilton. He is a successful entrepreneur and business man (currently CEO at KKT Interactive) and an avid blogger (canuckseo.com) who has rolled up his sleeves and helped several companies with SEO, business models and client acquisitions.
He has been such a tremendous supporter of ours and an asset to the community. And he's just the nicest guy you'll meet. But what we think of most fondly when we think of Jim is how early he shows up to meetings and events, and the fact that we can always count on him to be the first to register.
He might think of himself as an old guy, but his cheerleading, energy, and willingness to give so much of himself to our cause motivates us to do more and do better.
Thanks for everything and congratulations Jim!
