    Senior Account Executive

    BAMKO

    With a retail management background and zero idea what a promotional product was, Samantha joined the secret industry of branded merch almost 16 long years ago. What started out as an assistant position to 3 busy reps soon became managing her own book of business after less than one year. Working alongside a crew of very creative individuals, Samantha soon discovered that she would be a lifer in the branded merch industry – how could she walk away from the fun and excitement that each project delivered? A few strategic moves later, Samantha is now a Senior Account Executive with BAMKO and hopes to help grow the Canadian side of the business with an incredible group of folks she has been blessed enough to work with over the years.

    If she isn’t at home in Alberta, she is likely back in her hometown of Kelowna, BC visiting friends and family.

    If you could grow your business simply by marketing to your existing clients and raking in more referrals, making money would be a cakewalk. But to generate new revenue, you have to win over the customers and prospects you’re not getting, but could be. And typically, the customers you’re not getting are ones who are “not like you”.
