Sonya Beam of The POP Shop Achieves MAS+ Certification
We are proud of Marketing Superhero, Sonya Beam who received the highest certification in the promotional product industry, MAS+ Master Advertising Specialist Plus. Early this year The POP Shop was awarded two gold PPAI Technology awards, which played a part in achieving one of the first MAS+ designations in the industry.
But what else does it take to achieve MAS+ designation? 250+ hours of education credits, 10+ years experience, industry volunteer service and two certification examinations administered by Promotional Products Association International. Individuals with MAS+ certification designation are recognized as industry leaders who have attained a superior standard of professionalism, knowledge and experience. MAS+ can only be achieved by first obtaining a CAS (Certified Advertising Specialist) designation, which Beam achieved February 2008.
Approximately 1800+ industry professionals hold a CAS or MAS designation. Geiger, The POP Shop’s parent company, claims approximately 10% of the CAS/MAS Designations through their associates and independent sales partners. This is the most of any one company in the industry, using education to strengthen their ability to serve clients with strong industry knowledge, as well as service, quality and buying power.
