Since starting our business May 2007 has been to be part of the fabric of our local community; intertwined with the areas that represent the life-long passions of our ownership. At the core of our company's community involvement are pursuits in education and community outreach. Each month our owner Olivia averages 12-15 hours of community engagement serving as a leader as well as applying her marketing assistance to numerous boards, committees and organizations in the area.

Our passion for education is evident in our vibrant internship program, hosting students at the secondary and post secondary level since 2008; with 17 interns completing over 2800 hours.

Promotional Partners shares the resource of their time and expertise. Additionally we sponsor, donate and provide in kind products & services to a variety of local programs. Each year Promotional Partners donates over $3,800.00 in the community.

Testimonials:

Community Leadership

"Our business community in Apex is thriving, working together to solve local issues that enhance the quality of life for our residents and forge strong business relationships. Businesses like Promotional Partners are part of the fabric of our business community. Owner Olivia Scott has served in numerous capacities, including President of the Apex Rotary and on the board of directors for the Apex Chamber of Commerce. I’m proud to call Olivia my friend and appreciate her service within the community."
    - William "Bill" Sutton - Former Mayor of Apex


Community Volunteer

“In 2013, I handled the marketing and promotions for the 2013 Apex Jazz Festival. I worked with Olivia to put marketing products together for the event, including coasters, mugs, shirts, and related items. Not only does she know her business very well, she provides excellent products, and is 100% reliable and responsive to every single phone or email communication. I never have a question as to where we are at on anything. She makes the process seamless. Her customer service is superior.”
    - Karen – Trusted Treasures


“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Olivia in a number of capacities. We've been on the same team as Ambassadors with the Apex Chamber of Commerce and on the Apex PeakFest committee. Olivia is very community oriented. If there is a local event, Olivia has probably been involved in its success.”
    - Lisa - Kraft Family YMCA


Education Mentor

“Olivia and Promotional Partners have been a tremendous resource to Wake County public schools and Apex high school. Olivia is a consummate professional who never says no to a school that needs her help or expertise. Olivia is often at Apex High School mentoring, helping with mock interviews or attending business alliance and advisory board meetings. Promotional Partners is a strong supporter of the school's Academy of Information Technology and DECA programs. She regularly hosts interns and donates to charitable causes that our DECA students hold.”
   
- John Evans - former Apex Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) Director
