With thirty + years of sales, management, and small-business ownership experience in the recognition, promotional and incentive business, and current owner of an independent, suburban-Chicago-based service business helping companies build brand awareness and employee engagement and retention, Jeff Gardner thrives in collaborative, relationship-building environments with clients. It’s in this arena where clients benefit most from Jeff’s consultative, do-whatever-it-takes approach and creative, custom design abilities.  

His collaborative approach extends to his affiliation with Amanda Corey of From the Desktop (FTDT), who has provided administrative and billing support to the company for many years. 

Jeff is a proud member of PPAI, and PPAC, the industry association and local chapter, and attends their trade shows and educational sessions annually. 

Married to Jenny, Jeff is actively involved with their son and coaching his sports teams and also enjoys keeping active and fit playing hockey, golf and doing triathlons, as well as spending time in CO.

Jeff likes to be involved, and accordingly, his other passions include being socially active and organizing all kinds of rallies with friends, sports teams, and events and issues in their neighborhood and local community.
