“True  North”  this  week  in  Louisville,  Ky.  The  nation’s  leading  quick-­‐service  seafood  restaurant  unveiled  a

campaign  featuring  Steve  Connell,  which  was  released  to  the  public  this  summer.  The  leadership  team  
presented  a  new  updated  logo  along  with  the  brand  strategy  during  a  new  uniform  fashion  show  
featuring  the  Long  John  Silver’s  television  spokesperson,  Kenneisha  Thompson.

Marketing,  Media  &  Promotions.

leadership  and  loyalty.  Bob  Ruckriegel  accepted  the  award  during  the  closing  night  gala  alongside  his  
wife,  Lovella  Ruckriegel.    
“When  Long  John  Silver’s  came  along,  he  jumped  aboard  quickly  and  aggressively  opened  stores,”  said  
Jim  Patterson,  founder  of  Long  John  Silver’s.  “There  was  no  question  about  who  deserved  it.”
