GNP is also a long-standing member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) where they have earned an A+ rating (highest rating). A few words about GNP’s Factory-Direct Advantage – Although this program was originally designed for larger events, the flexibility of our factory-partners has made it possible so that event planners planning events with as few as 500 attendees can take advantage of unlimited customization possibilities and very advantageous pricing. Production time for this program is approximately 90 days however rush service is always available. And while this program is ideal for meeting attendee bags it has also proven to be successful for the production of lanyards, badge wallets, and other meeting supplies. GNP also carries a full line of eco-friendly options in all product categories. As a matter of fact, GNP Branded Gear was the first promotional products distributor to expand its “green” offerings to include recycled, recyclable, organic, biodegradable and other ecofriendly options across all product categories. GNP’s staff is comprised of a great mix of industry veterans and younger professionals. The list of GNP’s industry veterans includes John Giordano - GNP’s Co-Founder and President, Todd Frankford – VP of Business Development, Jill Hallen - Senior Sales Manager, Lori Vyhonsky - Senior Account Executive, Christie Rotanz - Relationships Manager, Lori Palazzo– Production Control Manager and other experienced team members.
