He started in the promotional products business in 1996 with HWA Sales, and has have received several recognition awards over the years: Sales Rep of the year for Ash City, Sales Rep of the Year for OGIO and Independent Sales Rep of the Year for Charles River Apparel.
“Hub Pen has been a great company to represent over the years," Blankenship said. "They provide a quality product, huge inventory levels and support for their reps. [I] never thought I would be a pen salesman, but I love every minute of it. My experience with Beacon has been great the last few months. I only hear good things about Beacon and have learned a lot from my customers, especially regarding the calendars and badges. My younger customers look at me like I have two heads when I talk about calendars, but my older customers are thinking about how many they can sell! Now, starting August 1, we are also selling their Canyon Leather line, which should go over really well down here in the south.”
“We really love working with Scott,” John Bottone, vice president of sales for Knockout Specialties, Plano, Texas, said. “He’s really helpful, and makes the job fun. We’ve had a lot of fun over the years. He’s truly a good friend, always reliable and trustworthy.”
