A little about Jolanda:
"Serial entrepreneur, connector, all-things crafts, lover of people, industrious, collaborator, leader, mom, wife, are just a few words to describe Jolanda Thomas of Promos. Done. Smart
Jolanda, a self-proclaimed introvert, has a gregarious personality with a big smile that makes her easy to be around. In fact, others love to be around her because she has a way of making you feel special, unique, and one of a kind.
Jolanda did a hard reboot on life after retiring from 30 years of United States Government service. She rolled up her sleeves, burned the midnight oil, and decided to put her MBA degree to work for her own business. She and her husband Phil, co-founded, Preferred Document Solutions, a paper reprographics and scanning company in December 2011. As technology and automation became more the norm, the mom-and-pop shop pivoted to add promotional products to their business model as their new business was for business cards, banners, and apparel. It made sense. The company now operates under Promos. Done. Smart. A Preferred Document Solutions Company.
