Aaron’s exec earns lifetime achievement award

BY CSA STAFF

William Kenneth Butler, COO of the 1,985 unit Aaron’s rent-to-own retail chain, received a lifetime achievement award from the Association of Progressive Rental Organizations (APRO).

Butler was selected as the 2012 recipient of the Ernie Tally Lifetime Achievement Award for an exemplary career spanning nearly four decades.

"Lifetime achievement recognizes the top of our class, and Ken has certainly proven himself as a deserving recipient of this award," said APRO president Robert Briley. “During his 38-year career with Aaron’s, he has revolutionized the way our industry does business. He has been the face and voice of the company, connecting with everyone at the store level up to the corporate executive team. He is open, down-to-earth and approachable, and knows how to maintain that perfect balance between being motivating and challenging.”

"We are extremely proud that one of Aaron’s own has earned our industry’s highest honor of the year,” said Aaron’s CEO Ronald W.

He has been instrumental over the last four decades in shaping our company into what it is today. His passion and perseverance is unwavering, and he continues to set an excellent example for each of our 12,000 associates.”
