Irving, TX, February, 2018 – In its annual recognition program that pays tribute to the diligence, professionalism and collaboration of multi-line reps, PPB magazine recognizes seven individuals as this year’s Best Multi-Line Reps and longtime HUB MLR Scott Schaefer is among them. The reps selected were nominated by their clients and judged by an in-house panel based on qualities such as responsiveness, customer service, creativity, follow-up and initiative, and will be spotlighted in the magazine’s April 2018 issue.
Veteran promotional products sales representative Scott Schaefer joined Hub Pen as a multi-line sales rep in 2010 representing his native Upstate New York as well as Western Pennsylvania and later the entire state of Pennsylvania. He was voted Multi-line Rep of the year by TRASA, the Three Rivers Advertising Specialty Association which serves Pittsburgh and the surrounding tri-state area Western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and West Virginia.
Since joining Hub Pen, the company has recognized Scott as Hub Pen Sales Rep of the Year two times. “Scott is an outstanding member of our team,” Hub Pen President Joe Fleming said. “Our customers and sales team love working with him.”
“It’s been a pleasure to represent Hub over the years,” says Schaefer. “My customers love the quality and great customer service of all of HUB Promotional Group’s members which now include, Beacon and BEST Promotions and Cooler Graphics.”
“Scott Schaefer was one of the first multi-line reps we formed a relationship with. He is a consummate professional, and his creativity and drive to exceed expectations never ceases to amaze me,” says Dan Broudy of Pittsburgh distributor Clayton Kendall. “He represents what the industry is supposed to be about. Partnering with great vendors to grow your company and exceeding client expectations.”
“PPB has run this program since 2011 and, in that time, we’ve spotlighted 44 multi-line reps for their hard work, relationship-building and service to customers and the industry,” says PPB Editor Tina Berres Filipski. “Multi-line reps are critical to the connections and communication within the industry and we’re glad to have a chance to bring more visibility to this important group of professionals.”
