Zack Barna
CEO

It was clear to Zack more than 10 years ago when he started boompromo that there was a better way to serve customers with promotional products. So, he did. Now, his day-to-day includes helping small businesses and big brands alike fulfill their promotional marketing needs, with an emphasis on quality and service.

Sara Santucci
Project Manager

Sara is the person you can thank when your project is delivered perfectly, and on (or ahead of) schedule. She oversees all our projects—monitoring them from start to finish, even if that means relentlessly hounding manufacturers to make sure your order ships on time. She’s our resident bulldog, but only when circumstances demand. Otherwise, she’s really sweet, we promise.
