Account Manager of Branded Merchandise

Irene Gonzalez-Velez

Promotional Products || Project Management || Client Relations

Orderly, friendly, and efficient, Irene enters the office each day with a smile that rarely leaves her face. Her ability to see through confusion and make order out of chaos keeps the products side of the business running smoothly, and her ever-present positivity is unaffected by the pace of the industry. Whether she faces stacks of stickers, labyrinths of lanyards, or twenty colors of team t-shirts, her measured, methodical approach means our clients can have the products they need without sacrificing personal, individualized service.

Irene’s background in real estate compliance lends well to our branded merchandise team, where she serves as project manager and client liaison for all active accounts. In looking for a position where she could apply her skills while learning new things, she found a role where she is able to systematize to her heart’s content while working with and assisting others—an ideal combination for Irene. She is always looking for opportunities to exceed expectations with what we’re able to produce and loves the satisfaction of helping clients find something they didn’t know they wanted. This detail-oriented and deadline-driven multitasker is prepared to take on the promo products world, one pen at a time. (We will not send you one pen at a time—we promise.)

Community Involvement

When Irene isn’t in the office or spending time with family, she loves to volunteer on Harvest Farms, a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) partnership. She also works as a translator when needed, supporting organizations like the mobile Tsu Chi Health Clinic in the past. She continues to volunteer with the Rotary Club as well, lending a hand on projects with her family whenever she can.
