Senior Account Executive
Cindy Tsuji, senior account executive with Image Source, discovered the promo industry after more than 20 years in corporate sales. A second-generation Japanese American, Tsuji was born and raised in San Diego, where hers was the only Asian family in the predominantly white, upper-middle-class community of Point Loma. She is the proud daughter of a seamstress and gardener, who were interned in the Poston, Arizona concentration camp for those of Japanese ancestry during WWII. A passionate world traveler and endurance athlete, she has completed a half marathon on all seven continents, including Antarctica. Tsuji moved to Japan after graduating from San Diego State University and traveled throughout Southeast Asia for four years. She now lives in Kirkland, Washington.
After attending college at UNC Greensboro, Renee began her career on the supplier side of the wedding & gift Industry, designing for and repping a boutique stationery line. From there, she got into deco with a local screen printer, where she learned just exactly how much work goes into a printed t-shirt. With customer service, sales and deco experience under her belt, she is now all promo and a Sales Coordinator with Brand Fuel. Renee has happily agreed to lead the charge for the recently established Brand Fuel DEI Board, where she is focusing on creative ways to implement company-wide DEI education and personal accountability, and she's not scared to ruffle a few feathers along the way.
