We've been helping our customers find "just the right" gift for over 8 years. Our philosophy is simple. Most people like the feeling of dealing with a small town operation where you get treated with respect and feel valued as a customer. Likewise it would be great if this same place had the sophistication and creativity of an urban operation. We try to balance the online capabilities of our large online competitors but offer the same service and relationship building that goes on in a smaller shop. We look for win-win situations and focus on customers who desire superior product knowledge and a high level of service. Sure, we'll compete on price but we also want you to value the work we do for you. We like our jobs a lot and we seek customers who are fun to work with. We look for loyal customers who want to work with us long-term. At Ultimate Promotions, you can expect intelligent suggestion, ideas, opinions and fun!
Craig Davidiuk was introduced to the promotional industry as a kid through his family's lapel pin and medal manufacturing business in Alberta. In the early 90's he heeded the call to 'go west, young man' and a move to Vancouver, BC garnered him a diploma in Media Resources from Capilano University. Stints as an educational video producer and graphic designer in Vancouver during the late 90's, exposed him to other aspects of the advertising industry and creative community. Lured by mountains, fresh air, and scenic vistas Craig departed the city and moved to Squamish, BC where he started Ultimate Promotions in 2002 as a purely online business with a focus on the ad agency, sport, and government markets. Fast forward to today, he's still busy helping all kinds of people scratch their promotional itch with unique imprinted gifts and clothing! An avid traveler, cyclist, and DJ, "Craiger" is a larger than life dude who is a 3rd generation entrepreneur. For professional information, view Craig's LinkedIn profile.
After various adventures in food service, make-up for film, banking, and teaching English in China, Courtney Driver whirled into Craig's life in 2006. It was love at first sight and they were married a year later. Her strengths are her sense of humor and her creativity - she will add color to your day and your promotion. In her spare time Courtney spins fire and hoop dances. Courtney's favorite color is purple.
Shannon Sealock has a thankless job. She quietly toils away in the background creating eye-popping art proofs, keeps the web site current and runs logistics on everyones orders. Her “jedi-like” knowledge of lapel pins, graphic design and un-matched ability to extract tracking numbers from every supplier is legendary in our operation. She is also the mother to two young boys, so nothing really gets past her.
Shannon is the definition of loyalty and dedication. She has been working with the Davidiuk family for over 10 years and has worked with Ultimate Promotions since 2012.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, attends concerts and has been known to sing karaoke on Friday nights.
Kelly McIntosh is our newest team member. She manages the sales and provides support and ideas for the marketing team.
Kelly has been in the trenches in demanding, fast paced and service driven organizations and is feeling quite at home in our hectic environment. She has past lives in the private and non-profit sectors with stints in radio sales, management and fundraising. Her personal sense of style and creativity is really going to blow our customers away.
Kelly hails from Manitoba but has a lengthy history in BC. She lives with her husband Chad and their cats. Like most people in Squamish, she is attracted to the outdoor lifestyle and the arts scene.
Kellie Moore is what we refer to as the “O.K” or the “original Kellie. She is also referred to as “Kellie with an e.” Confusion about our same-name-office-team aside, Kellie is the person who brings clarity, calm and order to our operation. Its hard to give her a job description other than saying she does a bit of everything. Her main function is to manage the day to day finances for our company and steps into other roles as needed.
She is a true “Jill of all trades”. She hails from Australia and completed her degree at the University of Newcastle and received a Bachelor of Economics. She moved to Canada in 2003 and has now been here long enough to be called Canadian. Congratulations are in order as she recently took the Oath of Canadian Citizenship.
She has worked in Canada’s arctic as a finance manager for a construction company in addition to selling outdoor equipment in Squamish. In her spare time she enjoys mountain biking, crossfit, sewing and hanging out with her partner Chris and her dog Keon.
