Stromberg Brand Announces New Hires
Stromberg Brand Umbrellas, Valley Cottage, N.Y., has announced the hiring of Lisa Bennett as multi-line rep in Illinois and Wisconsin.

In 2014, Bennett was named multi-line rep of the year by PPAI and has won numerous supplier awards. She currently serves on the PPAI L.E.A.D. committee.
"Having someone of Lisa's caliber joining our sales team is very exciting," said Dan Pigott, director of sales for the Hudson Valley Umbrella Company.

We are anticipating her having an immediate impact on Stromberg's Upper Midwest sales and service initiatives."
Founded more than 30 years ago by Keith Schroepfer, Bridge Marketing Services continues under the leadership of his son Cory Schroepfer. Bridge's team also includes John Bugele and Richard Schmidt.
"Having Bridge Marketing work with our existing distributors and bring our company front and center to many others in a dozen key states represents a tremendous growth opportunity for Stromberg, so we are very excited," Pigott added.
