(Fallbrook, California) — The Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG), a nonprofit organization composed of many of the top rare coin and paper money dealers, has extended for another two years the contract of its veteran Executive Director, Robert Brueggeman. “Bob has continued to manage a dynamic organization with zeal and dedication. His efforts have kept the Professional Numismatists Guild on a steady pace,” said PNG President Gary Adkins. “Most of the disputes that come to the PNG office are quickly and fairly settled through Bob’s tenacious determination. Legal and financial matters are handled with professional, caring detail. Promotion and education continue to be keys to PNG’s success with Bob’s guidance, and the PNG is proud to have Bob as its Executive Director.”
Brueggeman has served as PNG Executive Director for the past 14 years.
“In 1994, when I first took over as Executive Director, the PNG was struggling in both membership and finances. I’m happy to say that today the organization has 275 members and is exceptionally sound financially,” Brueggeman said. “We’ve also changed the perception of PNG from an elitist, ‘good ol’ boys club’ to that of an organization that is open to embracing all who meet the high standards of membership.” All PNG members must adhere to strict Code of Ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise. In the coming months Brueggeman will be working on plans for a series of small to medium-sized numismatic dealer-to-dealer conventions named the PNG Dealer’s Deal. Specific details about those conventions, including dates and locations, will be announced soon.
