Name of Company: The Roberts Group
Location: Raleigh, NC
Name & Title: Cody Williams | VP of Sales & Marketing
What was your first job in the industry? T-Shirt Folder. We started off as a screen printer, so at a young age, growing up around the business, I realized that rather than having the shirts come off the dryer into a box, I could just catch them and fold/box them up to save time. Luckily as I was older I worked my way up the corporate ladder!
How many years have you been in the industry? Having grown up around the industry, I would say around 25 years.
What are the top 3 product categories you sell? Apparel, Drinkware, Print
What makes your company stand apart from the rest? Attention to detail and out of the box thinking.
Coolest client you created promo products for: Do self-promos count? ?
Favorite ice cream: Anything dairy-free, stupid lactose intolerance.
Which celebrity do people say you look like? I don’t think anyone has ever compared me to one.
Favorite hobby: Anything outdoors (kayaking, biking, hiking, etc)
Your favorite smell: Cinnabon. I swear they bottle this smell and pump it in arenas.
How many countries have you been to? 26, I think.
