Hub Pen Hires New Northwest Reps
Hub Pen Company, Braintree, Mass., has hired Ed Osterman and Ed Timmerman of Tigard, Oregon-based Osterman Sales Associates to represent the company in the Pacific Northwest. Osterman will cover Alaska, Oregon and Washington, while Timmerman’s territory includes Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
Osterman, who has been an independent multi-line rep for 30 years, came into the promotional products industry in 1995 and is an active member of Northwest Promotional Marketing Association (NWPMA).
Prior to joining the Osterman Sales Associates staff nearly three years ago, Timmerman was in sporting goods apparel and accessories sales for nearly 10 years.
“I was initially drawn to Osterman Sales Associates because of its proven track record and great work ethic,” said Joe Fleming, Hub Pen general manager. “However, the more talked to folks, the more I found out how well respected and well liked they are. This made the decision to select them very easy, and we couldn’t be happier to have them on board.”
Osterman commented, “We pride ourselves on representing quality lines that bring value and ease of process to our distributors, and Hub Pen has a reputation of excelling at this. We are honored to represent Hub Pen with our customers throughout the Pacific Northwest.”
Founded in 1954 by Frank Fleming, Hub Pen Company takes its name from the famous Oliver Wendell Holmes quote that describes Boston as the “hub of the universe.” Today, Hub Pen continues operations under the management of the Fleming family, printing more than 100 million pens annually.
