    Sara Webb

    Owner - InTandem Promotions

    Sara Webb has more than 20 years of industry experience. With previous experiences as a buyer in a completely different industry, she became hooked on promotional products and its possibilities for branding organizations. In 1999, Sara began working in the promotional product industry where her true love for this industry flourished. 

    In 2013, Sara built InTandem Promotions. In her words, “Ever since I can remember, I have been a juggler. Juggling activities, career, family, friends and volunteering. I have learned through all of this juggling that I can do it myself. But it's far easier (not to mention more fun) to juggle with a partner.” And it was on that premise that the InTandem Promotions brand was created.     In owning InTandem, Sara has built not only a personal brand but also the brand of her organization. She is looking forward to sharing her experiences in developing as well as continually building the InTandem Brand Story.
