Kaylee Shields, a business development specialist with Image Masters, a Merced-based promotional marketing agency, has been named a “Rising Star “ by PPB, the industry publication of the promotional products industry.
Shields signed on with Image Masters in June 2017 upon graduation from the Eberhardt School of Business at University of the Pacific. In less than four years, she has developed a loyal client base and reached the million dollar mark for the first time in 2020.
“I met Kaylee when she was a UOP senior and hired her as an intern during her senior year” notes fellow Tiger-alumnus Tim O’Neill, owner of Image Masters. “When she expressed an interest in continuing in the industry it was a no-brainer to hire her upon graduation. She continues to exceed my admittedly high expectations”.
PPB selects 12 of the most watchable young industry professionals selected from hundreds of nominations. The annual program seeks out and spotlights the industry’s budding leaders based on their accomplishments, demonstrated leadership and involvement in their industry and communities.
The 2021 Rising Stars were recognized in the September issue of PPB magazine.
