Hola Promos


I like to wake up every day and hope that I can contribute to this world in some way, shape, or form.  When my kids were younger, I was a professional volunteer at their services, now that they have grown, I can choose where to spend my time.  But spending my time to give back is a way of life, something that has always been a part of our family.  I learned as a young kid that giving a little of me can go a long way for someone else, and it was my responsibility to find a way to do as much as I could.

Having been involved with various charitable organizations for as long as I can remember, when I was asked to join the SAAGNY Foundation, it was a no-brainer. Running a promotional products business and getting involved in the organization that gives back to our community – a perfect match!

I’m my nieces’ favorite uncle and also have a 5 star passenger uber rating, so I guess you can say I have my life together. Recently, I started taking vitamin D3 supplements, so everything is about to change. I joined the SAAGNY Foundation because for a long time, I wanted to do charity work, but always found myself never actually going through with it. Then I learned that in my industry, in my region, there is an entire organization dedicated to charity work! I decided no more excuses and I took the leap to get involved and never looked back.

A great charitable foundation is passionate about providing for their community and I am proud to be a part of that community and on the Board of the SAAGNY Foundation as we advance causes dear to our hearts that impact those in our industry and those we help along the way. The SAAGNY Foundation Scholarship Fund alone has awarded over $200,000 in scholarship to dependents of our members.

After spending 7 years on the NEPPA board I decided that I wanted to continue to expand my horizons and what better way than to volunteer on the SAAGNY Foundation Board. Thought it was time to give NY&NJ some love! I have always felt that it is better to give than to receive and to give my time to help raise funds for scholarships and children with cancer, along with helping with homeless shelters, food pantries and more is so heartwarming and rewarding. We are always looking for volunteers so please reach out to me personally to get started on a committee to help make a positive impact in the community and work with like-minded professionals.

I have been with SANMAR since 2005.  I consider myself so lucky and fortunate to be in this industry. Absolutely love it.   To be asked to help spread the love through the Foundation is a beautiful thing.  One of my favorite quotes is “nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm” and I try and live life in that manner.  In helping with the Foundation, I promise to take the same approach !

I am President of Blank2Branded a women owned agency located in Montville, NJ.  The promotional products industry has been a part of my life for 20+ years!  It is truly an amazing group of people to work with each day.  When I was asked to be a part of the Saagny Foundation board I was honored and very much looking forward to giving back to the community!

My journey with the SAAGNY Foundation began off a recommendation from a previous board member. While I was not as knowledgeable back then about the foundation as I am today, I decided to attend an event that was being held for kids with carnival games along with arts and crafts at Hilltop School. Once the day of activities was over, I saw the good that the SAAGNY Foundation does for its community and was fully committed at that point. Fast forward 3 years now and I am happy to be serving as Vice Chair for this wonderful foundation along with the other amazing Do-Gooders that serve on this board.

When I was asked to join the SAAGNY Foundation, it was a definite no-brainer for me. I basically grew up in this industry and have spent over 20 years on both the distributor and the supplier sides of the business. I truly love and embrace anything that enables me to give back to an industry that has provided me with so much personal and professional fulfillment over the years! Here’s to a wonderful and charitable 2023!

The promotional industry is where I began my professional career, and I honestly couldn’t see myself doing anything else. Fast forward 18 years, and many grays later, I am still as excited and energized as ever about the direction that our industry is going. Since I first heard about the SAAGNY Foundation, I wished to be involved and was deeply honored when asked to help in their mission. The current and new board members are some of the most respected people in our field and I am lucky for the opportunity to to give back to this community that I appreciate so much.

Everybody has the capacity to give a little bit. Through partnership and through empathy, the SAAGNY Foundation is focused on making a compassionate effort to take care of our community and each other. I feel honored to have been asked to be a part of the SAAGNY Foundation Board, and I can’t think of a more noble and worthy venture than giving back to my community.

I am a family man who loves to lend a helping hand when I can.  Big fan of anything sports, and have helped fundraise for teams, so when I had the opportunity to join a great foundation, I had to jump. I have been in the industry for 14 years and love the people in the industry that are part of this organization, and the community it serves.  It is incredibly rewarding to see how our services can impact the people we are serving and excited to do what I can.
