Pro-Motion Notions is excited to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their Sarasota based promotional products distributorship. Annette Sciolino-Gueli, President, moved Pro-Motion Notions to Sarasota, Florida in December of 1998. In the years since, Pro-Motion Notions’ Florida sales have grown to exceed several million dollars. They acquired four competing Manatee and Sarasota based firms between 2004 and 2011 and have been an approved Florida certified MBE for 15 years. “A lot has happened in our world since 1989. Technology, the way we communicate, printing techniques, marketing strategies and inevitable market changes that have taught us to be nimble and quick. It’s nostalgic recalling the early days in Buffalo, NY where I started the business out of my parents garage while attending college. The industry now exceeds 25 billion and our small, woman owned business, continues to excel both regionally and nationally. We attribute our success to employees and mentors who’ve shared their brilliance with us for 30 years. Our community relationships have allowed the annual sales of tangible advertising specialty items to soar to new heights” recalls Miss Sciolino. She has served in leadership roles on several boards, created and launched successful annual events and has earned numerous awards over the past three decades. Sciolino states that her biggest personal accomplishment to date, “is not only surviving but thriving post breast cancer!”
Pro-Motion Notions is proud to have supported over 785 fundraisers and events for 82 community nonprofits. Their strengths include attention to detail, business integrity and our passion for on time delivery. “21% of our clients have been with us for over 12 years. 67% of our clients have been with us for over three years.
