Get to Know the Speakers


Dale Denham, MAS+, President and CEO, PPAI

In 2021, Dale Denham stepped into the role of President and CEO at Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), leading the charge in revitalizing the industry's premier trade association from the setbacks inflicted by COVID-19. His tenure has seen PPAI undergo a noteworthy resurgence, characterized by a wave of new industry initiatives and a strong emphasis on digital transformation and corporate responsibility.

Prior to his tenure at PPAI, Denham held significant leadership positions, including Senior Vice President roles at a top promotional distributor and separately a prominent media and technology firm, accumulating over 30 years of executive experience. He has also been actively involved in various boards, including a noteworthy stint on the PPAI Board of Directors from 2015 to 2020, where he served as Board Chair in 2018.

Denham is a proud alumnus of the University of South Florida, where he earned his bachelor's degree in business with a minor in economics. Alongside his wife and four children, he calls Tampa Florida home.


Tom Goos, MAS, President, Image Source

Tom is the President of Image Source, a nationally recognized branded merchandise agency known for its purpose driven culture and strategic client approach. Day to day, he leads Image Source’s strategic direction, as well as financial management, operations, and supplier partnerships. With 22+ years of branded merchandise experience, Goos is a true industry leader and expert.

He is a former two-term President of NWPMA and a founder and partner of Reciprocity Road, the innovative industry buying, and shared learning group comprised of eight elite branded merchandise agencies. He was recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal’s award program, 40 Under Forty.


Jeremy Lott, President, SanMar

A picture on SanMar's very first catalog cover with a two-year-old peddling a big wheel proves it — Jeremy has worked at SanMar for nearly his entire life.

Today, as President of the family-owned business, Jeremy works in partnership with his father, Marty and his brother, Jordan. Over the years Jeremy learned the business from the inside out, from pulling orders to purchasing. After college and a stint studying in Hong Kong, he launched his career as an analyst for investment bank Piper Jaffray's technology team. Jeremy moved to Chicago in 2001 to earn his MBA, and then joined SanMar full-time. Adding strategy to vision, he continues to steward the company toward long-term growth and health. Proud of the opportunities given to so many tenured staff members to thrive, he often spends time "table-hopping" at the company's on-site café. He learns a lot during those casual conversations because, he says, employees have the pulse on what's really going on in their arenas.

The father of six children, Jeremy discovered that a work/life balance holds the key to maximum productivity. He enjoys spending time outdoors — skiing, hiking, boating and generally staying active.
