Partners N Promotion founder Vicki Clayman joins Smart Companies Thinking Bigger host Kelly Scanlon to discuss her entrepreneurial journey.
Clayman is the founder and president of Partners N Promotion, a boutique promotional, premium incentive and online recognition products company that she founded in 2008.
When she founded the company, Clayman had more than 25 years of experience selling and servicing promotional product and recognition program customers around the country. But her entrepreneurial path was an unlikely one. She didn’t go to college, married young and was a stay-at-home mom through her mid-20s. After her divorce, however, she pursued sales, a career her father had pursued successfully.
Some of the specialties that Partners N Promotions offers are:
- Online stores
- Safety recognition
- Employee years of service
- Wellness initiatives
Partners N Promotion’s customers run the gamut, serving customers of all sizes—from some of the largest nationwide Fortune 500 brands to local schools and startups.
Clayman says that the company’s success is due to the hands-on consulting her team provides to every customer. “We do not just make a sale and walk away . . .We go to employee meetings and listen,” she said.
