American Solutions for Business announced that Brandon Kennedy and BrandCo Marketing team has joined the company.
Joining the promo industry in 2004, Kennedy has built a loyal customer base and team of 12 dynamic team members to include four sales professionals in Tennessee, Ohio, Newport Beach, CA and BrandCo’s main office and warehouse in Bakersfield, CA.
“Brandon and his team are a perfect culture and strategic fit here and we couldn’t be happier to have them on board,” expressed Justin Zavadil, ASB President. “I can’t wait to see them grow their business and level of service to their customers here at ASB.”
Get to know Brandon:
Where are you located? We have our main office and warehouse in Bakersfield, CA where most the team is and an office in Newport Beach, CA where my graphic artist and myself work out of. We also have a remote sales rep in TN and Ohio and a remote CSR in Washington state.
When did you join the promo industry and how did you find the industry? Started my company in March of 2004. I learned about this industry while working for a woman who had just joined Proforma at the end of 2003. She suggested I get my own franchise and so I joined Proforma a few month after she did. Haven’t looked back ever since.
Describe your customer base/focus: We don’t have a main focus. Bakersfield is a very blue collar town so our clients range from Oil to Ag, Healthcare, Automotive, Manufacturing.
How did you decide to join ASB? I joined ASB because of the structure and support but really am pleased with the partnership of the ASB team. My vision is growth and I can see the roadmap to get where we want to go with the help of the ASB resources and structure. Also, joining an ESOP made sense for me to provide to my staff and is a huge bonus for retaining staff and attracting more talent, future looks bright!!
What are you most looking forward to at ASB? Growth, Growth, Growth!! I am excited to meet more like minded professional peers and learn from their experiences and help share some of my experiences with them as well. The staff at ASB has been nothing short of amazing so working with those who share my vision and are looking to help is refreshing. I am a total team guy and love to be part of something bigger so with the support of ASB my staff can feel more supported and less stressed out.
Family: Married to Christina (got married 3 months after I started my company in 2004). We have a 14 year old son, Colton, who is a freshman at Newport Harbor High School, and a rescue Boxer named Bailey Cookie.
Hobbies/travel: We love to travel anywhere we can and we drag along Nana (my mom) everywhere we go usually! Colton is obsessed with fishing so vacations tend to revolve around going ocean fishing somewhere. Colton and I love golfing and fishing and we are all complete movie junkies at the big screen places! We enjoy hanging out on our boat cruising around the bay or even going out looking for whales and sea life or going over to Catalina Island.
