Neil Piitz – Add Impact
With almost three decades working in senior roles within the Promotional Products industry, Neil Piitz is recognized as an industry leader working both as a Distributor and a Supplier on both sides of the border. Founder of Reaction Promotions Inc. and co-owner of ARPG, he also spent 3 years as Senior VP of Sales with Ash City USA and now currently holds the role of VP of Sales and Marketing for Add Impact based out of Vaughan.
Neil’s role as President of ARPG was instrumental in establishing the Vaughan based company as the largest Canadian promotional products Distributer in Canada, as well as achieving the first ever Top 40 ASI North American ranking for sales by a Canadian Distributor.
As President of ARPG, his straight forward approach to sales, sales management, program development and vendor relations drove the company to 5 consecutive Distributor of The Year awards as voted by the PPPC members.
His experience “learning the ropes” as a Supplier with Ash City USA was very humbling and Neil quickly realized that he needed to reinvent himself focusing on the nuances of the US marketplace as well as his new role as SVP of Sales. Incredibly, within 12 months he had achieved the largest Key Account growth in Ash City history, a direct result of his distributor background and understanding of the “pain points” that both Distributors and Suppliers alike face on a daily basis.
His well-documented record for success as a Distributor and Supplier on both sides of the border has made Neil one of the industry’s most consulted authorities regarding the Promotional Products Industry.
