Portland, Oregon (March 1, 2019) – The Helicopter Association International (HAI) has awarded Oliver Johnson, Editor-in-Chief of Vertical Magazine, the 2019 Excellence in Communications Award sponsored by Lightspeed Aviation. One of the “Salute to Excellence” awards to be presented during a luncheon at HAI Heli Expo next week, the Lightspeed Aviation Excellence in Communications award recognizes the individual or organization who achieves the most creative and distinct dissemination of information about the helicopter industry.
In his role, Johnson guides Vertical Magazine’s editorial contributors (a team of industry experts who are not necessarily professional writers) in the creation of factually accurate and compelling stories for his readers. His tireless efforts ensure that the contributor’s expertise and passion reliably shine through in clear, well-crafted prose.
Johnson also contributes outstanding feature stories about industry trends, the latest innovations and breaking news for the magazine’s print version and Vertical’s website. His writing style is informative, engaging, clear and concise for any reader to comprehend regardless of industry familiarity.
