WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.—Fully Promoted names Tipton Shonkwiler as divisional director of sales. Shonkwiler rejoins the organization after serving United Franchise Group (UFG) and its brands for the past 17 years, which includes Fully Promoted.
Shonkwiler previously worked for Fully Promoted, formerly known as EmbroidMe, overseeing vendor relations and marketing. In his previous role as international director, the company credits Shonkwiler with “global growth and expansion of all UFG brands.”
"My industry experience, familiarity with growing an office-based franchise brand, and knowledge of international markets will serve as strengths for me in this new role," says Shonkwiler. "As I see it, we have a great opportunity ahead as an organization to expand our retail division. With the introduction of the Fully Promoted office model, this will open up a whole new set of buyers for the brand."
The company introduced an office model earlier this year, which aims to offer vendor accessibility and range of services backed by the Fully Promoted name.
"With Tipton Shonkwiler, Fully Promoted has added another industry veteran to its already strong lineup of industry insiders and experts," says Mike Brugger, President of Fully Promoted. "His understanding of the industry will help more independent distributors realize the success and advantages of a franchise with the ability to leverage our vast embroidery network and supplier relationships."
