Tim English Joins MiPPA Board of Directors!

MiPPA welcomes our newest member of the Board of Directors, Tim English, Vice President Sales and Operations of Grand Rapids distributor, SBS Brands.  English replaces Michael Crawford MAS, who stepped down due to changing and increased responsibilities with his teaching duties.
The term of service is through 12/31/18.

Tim brings extensive industry leadership and business skills to our board.   " I have been working in the Printing and Promotional industry since 1988, working the first 20 years of my career working in sales. As Superior Business Solutions evolved and grew so did my  responsibilities . In 2010 I had to leave the street so that I could focus more of my energy working with our 25 person sales  team,  vendors and customers.  As the world of sales changes, it is my responsibility to work with our vendors and sales teams to work in tandem to bring the best possible solutions to our customers and save them time and money.
Superior Business Solutions has 3 sister companies , Proteus B2B, Factory Direct Promos and Thynk Direct. With that we have a lot of moving parts but they all typically come back to components of marketing. But with the diversity I have the opportunity to have insight into all aspects of business."
