American Solutions for Business is excited to announce that our sales associate, Kim Hamlin, has been appointed to the UMAPP (Upper Midwest Association of Promotional Products) board!
As the Distributor Director, her role is to serve as the voice for the distributor members. She will help lead UMAPP to better support its distributor members, engage more young professionals, elevate organization events and connect distributors and suppliers for the overall growth of our industry. Kim’s biggest time commitment will be serving as Co-Chair for the May 2018 UMAPP Fire & Ice Tradeshow, which will be held at US Bank Stadium (just 3 months after the SuperBowl).
“I’m excited to give back to a great organization, full of industry leaders, that mentored me into the industry I love.” -Hamlin
Kim started her career in promotional products 3 years ago after working 9 years as an event planner for the University of Minnesota. She started on the supplier side of our industry in a national/key account management role, and learned how suppliers can better serve their distributor clients. Since moving to the distributor side this summer, one of her main goals is to help attract younger talent to the promotional products industry as a whole.
We are so proud to have such an active sales force dedicated to improving the quality and growth of our industry. Click Here to learn more about UMAPP or visit our company homepage for more information about American!
