BAMKO Hires Sasha Pirrie as National Sales Manager
BAMKO, Los Angeles, announced that it has hired Sasha Pirrie as national sales manger. Pirrie previously was with Polyconcept North America.
“I’ve been watching the growth and innovation happening at BAMKO over the last few years, and you simply can’t deny that they are building something different over there—very, very different,” Pirrie said. “To me, BAMKO is what the future of this industry should look like. There is a boldness, innovation, sense of fun and entrepreneurial spirit that is infused into everything that BAMKO does that is simply next-level.”
BAMKO has had a big 2021 so far, acquiring Gifts By Design and reporting non-PPE promotional product sales up 11% over the last year. Overall 2020 sales for BAMKO were up 88% to $202 million, as well.
BAMKO has also made news recently for being the distributor responsible for Dunkin’s merchandise collaboration with TikTok star Charli D’Amelio.
“I loved my time at PCNA,” Pirrie continued. “They’ve been great to me, and I would have happily stayed there for the rest of my career had the opportunity to help build something special at BAMKO not come along. I couldn’t be more grateful for the trust and confidence that the team at BAMKO has placed in me, and I intend to prove that their trust was very well placed.”
Jake Himelstein, chief operating officer and chief financial officer for BAMKO called the appointment of Pirrie “absolutely a coup for BAMKO.”
“Her character, skill set and reputation is without peer in this industry,” he said. “She is a unique talent, a great cultural fit and someone who loves a challenge. This is a transformational hire that shows that we have but a company and a culture that our industry’s most talented and driven performers are drawn to. Sasha is going to do special things here. We are going to give her the resources and support she needs to succeed here, and we are going to set her loose to become the best version of herself that she is capable of being. I can’t wait to see what she achieves.”
