HALO Branded Solutions Names 2015 Supplier of the Year

LAS VEGAS, NV (January, 2016) – HALO Branded Solutions presented their “2015 Supplier of the Year” Award and “2015 Supplier Representative of the Year” Award at their annual Awards Gala held at the Las Vegas Four Seasons Hotel in conjunction with the industry’s largest trade show, the PPAI Expo.


More than 250 HALO Account Executives and support personnel witnessed Leeds receiving the prestigious 2015 Supplier of the Year Award based on a vote by the Company’s account executives and support staff late last year. Over seventy preferred suppliers qualified for the vote based on exceptional service, aggressive pricing, and creative sales promotion efforts. According to Terry McGuire, HALO Senior Vice-President of Marketing, “Our continued growth, as well as the growth of our Preferred Supplier Program, is a result of the incredible support from promotional products suppliers like Leeds.” Scott Anderson and Cally Neal accepted the award on behalf of Leeds/Polyconcept.

Jim Heurung, National Account Manager for HIT, was recognized as the 2015 Supplier Representative of the Year. McGuire noted, “Jim was an overwhelming choice. Our business with HIT continues to grow double-digits, thanks in large part to the exceptional service he provides our team. He is always there for us.”

Marc Simon, HALO CEO noted, “Our preferred supplier program is an industry success story. The profit enhancements and exclusive promotions our suppliers provide are passed on to our sales people—this year we announced a new record of over $2 million in supplier bonus payments to our sales team. In turn, these key suppliers are honored with a nearly 70% of our purchases. We are pleased to recognize their exceptional efforts throughout the year.”
