IBEX Industry Breakfast and Innovation Awards Presentation which will feature a motivational keynote presentation by National Baseball Hall of Fame Player Johnny Bench.

“Johnny Bench is a symbol of winning through hard work and teamwork as outlined in his keynote presentation featuring, The Vowels of Success,and we are thrilled to welcome the Catcher of the Century to deliver the keynote address at the annual IBEX Industry Breakfast,” noted NMMA President Thom Dammrich. “Johnny’s impressive record on and off the baseball field illustrates his dedication to his team and the game, all values which will resonate with our attendees who will be inspired by his drive to succeed.”

Elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in January 1989, Bench is undoubtedly the greatest catcher ever as stated by the Sporting News in late 1998, in which Johnny was named the 16th greatest player of all time – His successes include National League Rookie of the Year (1968), National League Most Valuable Players (1970 & 1972), World Series MVP (1976), 14-time All-Star, and 10 Gold Gloves. In 1980, Bench set an endurance record by catching 100 or more games for 13 consecutive seasons. Then, in 1999 Johnny received baseball’s esteemed honor of selection to the All-Century Team on October 24. Over the years, Johnny has maintained a sense of balance by using his celebrity status to aid such worthy causes as the Heart Association, the American Cancer Society (as past National Chairman of Athletes vs. Cancer), the Kidney Foundation, Franciscan Sisters of Poor Health System, the American Lung Association, and the ‘Catch the Cure’ program of the Children’s Hospital of Cincinnati.
