Apparel Distributor Alliance

You all know SanMar, whether you’ve used them as a supplier yourself, explored them as an option, or seen them at a trade show. In this episode, you get to hear from prior territory manager, Monty Mims, who now works in Decorator Relations.

Monty, a second-generation child of the decorated apparel industry, was raised in his father’s embroidery business, where he worked for seven years, before joining SanMar in 2007.

A self-proclaimed “apparel geek,” Monty earned his Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Communications from the University of Central Florida and is a great guest to kick off the new year.

Take a listen to learn:

  • The exciting things SanMar is doing to make the buying experience better for their customers
  • What to expect from SanMar throughout the 2018 trade show season
