Red Promotions was founded in November 2008, the height of the worst economic conditions since the great depression.  After 12 years of being a top Account Executive in the promotional merchandise industry Shelley Stewart saw an opportunity to create a new type of company.  But, who in their right mind would choose to start a business in such uncertain times?  Looking back it’s easy to see how the external influences of the time guided her in building a business that is strong, resilient, responsible and most importantly customer-focused.  Maybe it wasn’t such a crazy time to start a business after all. 
 

The company we created is based on the following philosophy:   We are a service business that sells product.  We are not a product business.  We provide a service that facilitates selection and delivery of a great product by focusing on these core responsibilities to our clients. 
 

  • Select and procure the right merchandise

  • Provide an excellent user experience

  • Deliver great service and pricing
     

We work with top Fortune 500 companies as well as the smallest of small business. No project is too large or too small and each one is handled with the same amount of care and thoughtfulness. Our team has over 70 years of industry experience delivering creative solutions on time and within budget.

MEET THE TEAM

Shelley Stewart

CEO (Creative Experience Officer) / President

Shelley began her career in the branded merchandise industry in 1996 and  held multiple sales executive positions at large and small firms.  In 2008 she recognized that there was an opportunity to create a boutique branded merchandise firm that could offer clients both the highest level of service and support and industry leading pricing.  This led to the founding of Red Promotions.  When not conquering the world of promotional merchandise, Shelley can be found cheering on her daughter’s volleyball team, mountain biking with her husband or enjoying sips and shopping with friends. 

Lori Bostdorff

Sales Ninja

Lori joined the Red Promotions team in 2012.  Coming from 20+ years of various sales experience, this was a new market that she hadn’t tackled.  And, to date, it’s by far the most fun and rewarding one. While there’s always a place and need for the basic items, it’s the creative, custom projects that she loves the most! Lori spends her free time dropping one liners, dreaming of martinis, travelling to anywhere that there is sun involved and is usually booking her next trip on the return flight home…much to her husband’s dismay.

Shannon Vanderwall

Sr. Account Executive

Shannon began her career in the apparel industry in 2005. She joined the Red Promotions team in 2015, where she learned a entirely new world of promotional merchandise. She prides herself on excellent customer service backed by her dedication to her clients. She is a very out-going and smiley individual who enjoys living life to the fullest. Shannon and her husband welcomed their first baby in fall of 2017! In her spare time she loves to get away with her family and find places to take their dogs Bond and Fabio.

Angela Martenson

Account Executive

Angela joined the Red Promotions team with over 14 years of diverse sales experience.  A new face in the promotional merchandise industry…she is loving every minute of it. She thrives in a challenge and takes pride in providing exceptional service for all her clients. When she is not making “magic happen” at the workplace, you can find her at the top of a mountain, either with a snowboard or hiking shoes. She loves physical activity, lifting weights, and the outdoors, almost as much as she loves a dry cider, tacos, and sushi.

Allison Markus

Account Executive

​Allison found her perfect match in the world of promotional products, merging her creativity with her gift of gab. With 16 years of experience in the industry, she prides herself on building lasting relationships and finding that perfect “something” to enhance the brand experience. Allison joined the Red Promotions team in 2019, carrying on the commitment of being #clientfirst and #serviceobsessed. In her spare time, Allison and her partner are probably at another community event, tending to one of their three rescue dogs (don’t get me started on the two cats), singing karaoke, traveling to another time zone, or she is spending some down time in her edible garden listening to her favorite unknown artist.

Jessica McClanahan

Senior CSR/Finance Manager

Jessica joined the Red Promotions team in 2013, and takes care of order processing as well as finance. She enjoys working with clients and vendors, ensuring that every order is handled with great care from start to finish. When she isn’t at the office she enjoys baking, spending time with her four miniature Australian Shepherds, exploring new restaurants with her husband or working on various projects in her new home.
