Annette Sciolino-Gueli

President/Founder

I am committed to exceeding the expectations of Pro-Motion Notions clients, employees and the boards and non-profit committees we serve. I’ve tirelessly enjoyed 34 years as sole owner of Pro-Motion Notions, an independent promotional products distributorship founded in Buffalo NY. I moved the business to Sarasota in 1998 and have built a quality team of dedicated people working together toward our community minded missions. Balancing company resources while minimizing expenses has kept our annual growth both progressive and steady. My primary responsibility is increasing revenue streams and market visibility but I most enjoy working with our long term clients and keeping them up on industry branding trends. Negotiating both paid and in-kind PR and advertising with media outlets for myself and a few clients has been in my scope of activities. I dabble in graphic design, have been called an organizational guru and in my very limited spare time I enjoy my family, friends and Sheltie, Rosa.
