AIS President and CEO Bruce Platzman Named to Worcester Business Journal’s 2019 Power 50 List

Leominster, MA – May 29, 2019 – AIS, a leading manufacturer of commercial office furniture and seating, recently announced that President and CEO Bruce Platzman has been named to the Worcester Business Journal’s 2019 Power 50 list.

The annual Power 50 list is compiled by the Worcester Business Journal’s editorial team. This list of the 50 most influential people in the Central Massachusetts economy is comprised of individuals in leadership positions who use their influence to positively impact the community.

Factors such as the relocation to a 600,000 square-foot headquarters in Leominster, the significant role that AIS plays as the city’s largest employer, and the company’s corporate social responsibility and community outreach efforts (through Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island, United Way of North Central Massachusetts and many other local organizations) all played a part in Platzman’s nomination.

Platzman was recognized as part of the Power 50 list in the May 24 edition of the Worcester Business Journal. See the article here.
