The Advertising Specialty Institute named Moisant Promotional Products’ owner and president to its inaugural list of industry trailblazers.

Teresa Moisant, MAS, owner and president of Moisant Promotional Products was named one of the Top 10 Women To Watch by the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI).

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA (March 14, 2011) – Teresa Moisant, MAS, owner and president of Moisant Promotional Products was named one of the Top 10 Women To Watch by the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI). The inaugural awards ceremony was held during the ASI Women’s Summit on February 18 in Dallas, Texas.

A total of 37 women were considered for the honor based on how they have grown their companies into promotional powerhouses, achieved success in sales and marketing, mentored other women, and overcame personal and professional challenges. Winners were determined by popular vote of ASI members.

“Each woman honored this year is a trailblazer who is making a big impact on the ad specialty industry,” said Nicole Rollender, editor of ASI’s Stitches magazine and director of education. “Recipients include entrepreneurs who started their own businesses with nothing and grew them into super companies, million-dollar salespeople, marketing mavens who always know how to create just the right business buzz, and ad specialty veterans who are the favorite mentors for industry newcomers.”

Moisant commented, “When the promotional products industry began more than 100 years ago, it was a man’s world. It’s been in the past 30 years that women have began making an impact in the industry and helped grow it to the nearly $16 billion market that it is today. The caliber of business professionals in ASI’s Women To Watch is top-notch, and I am humbled and honored to be a part of this very special inaugural group.”
