Gaithersburg, MD— February 14, 2023 — The Chesapeake Promotional Products Association (CPPA) awarded Sonic Promos’ Brand Manager Madi Evens its 2023 Rising Star Award. This award is presented to an up-and-coming promotional professional who brings new ideas, dedication and enthusiasm to both their company and the industry. Rising Star nominees must be employed in the promotional products industry five years or less from the date of nomination.
Madi Evens grew up in Branchburg, New Jersey. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2020 with a degree in Advertising, concentrating on business. She joined Sonic Promos in 2021 as a sales assistant, moving to the DC Metro area in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since joining Sonic Promos, Evens has proven invaluable as a dedicated member of the in-office team. She assists two of Sonic’s senior sales reps and maintains her own client relationships as well.
Her favorite client project put her on-site in Florida to assist with an event activation. The client wanted to enhance their annual conference by allowing employees to “shop” for branded gear. Sonic worked with our apparel and decorating partners to create a “Fit Kit” that allowed employees to participate in a live personal-shopping experience. During the event, Evens and the Sonic team helped each recipient choose their individual style, size and color before placing their order.
In response to being named the 2023 Rising Star, Evens says “I am so thankful and grateful for this award. It is really nice to know that my hard work has been recognized by others.”
