Meet George Boyum, MAS, CFC
George has provided print and promotional solutions to clients in all business disciplines for the past 50 years. From small companies to large national organizations, he has listened to their concerns and created unique solutions that helped them achieve their desired result.
He started his print career with Burroughs Corporation in 1969 and has held various positions with both large and small companies within the print industry from sales trainee to Vice President of Sales for Variable Image Printing Services. He began to explore alternative directions when laser printers reduced the need for outsourced print in the late 1990s. George founded American PromoPrint in 1997 as a print and promotional products distributorship. It grew to a million-dollar distributorship by 2015 when he decided to retire and sold the company to Tarheel Promotions to pursue the good life.
In addition to American PromoPrint, George also created The Motivation Recognition Group in 2012 to process incentive programs for his clients. MRG stayed in business during the retirement years assisting a handful of select clients. During 4 years of retirement, George discovered he missed the customer interaction and excitement of serving others in business, so he resurrected The Motivation Recognition Group to a motivational and marketing solution resource.
George has earned the certifications as a Certified Forms Consultant, Certified Advertising Specialists, and Master Advertising Specialists through his tenure in both the print and promotional industry
He is also active in various promotional products associations including PPAI and the Houston Promotional Products Association where he has held the position of Board Member, Vice President, President. and RAC Representative.
George and his wife Judy have 2 children, 11 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. His main joy in life is spending time with family and traveling.
