2012 Promotional Products Person of the Year: Honor Reflects 4imprint Team
(Oshkosh, Wis.) – 4imprint’s leader has been named 2012 Person of the Year in the promotional products industry. The Counselor magazine, a promotional products trade publication, honored 4imprint President Kevin Lyons-Tarr at an event Wednesday night.
“Personally, I love it when this award ends up going to someone with the foresight to seize a game-changing trend – and the skills to parlay it into a whole new way of doing business,” said Tim Andrews, ASI’s president and CEO, in announcing Lyons-Tarr as the Person of the Year. “I’m talking about Kevin Lyons-Tarr – a direct marketing visionary with a personal touch. It’s clear nobody does the Internet better than 4imprint.”
The magazine cites 4imprint’s 36% growth over the last two years and its online strategy among the reasons for the selection. 4imprint is currently the nation’s 5th largest promotional products distributor, according to ASI.
“This honor reflects the spirit and efforts of our entire team,” Lyons-Tarr said. “Every time we interact with someone – a customer, another team member, a vendor partner – we try to make that interaction a success. When you work with an entire team that shares that approach, good things happen.”
In the eight years Lyons-Tarr has led 4imprint, building and maintaining that ‘do the right thing’ culture has been a top priority. For the last four years, the company has been honored as a Great Place to Work®.
“Our entire team works hard to make this a place where people succeed,” Lyons-Tarr said. “It’s a tribute to our team’s work when those efforts are noticed.”
