While economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis may come slowly for most promo companies, well-diversified distributors in the industry like Touchstone (asi/345631) have been increasingly grabbing market share.

Mason, OH based Touchstone Merchandise Group is on track for a record breaking year of revenue growth in 2020. Founder and CEO, Derek Block, claims their secret to success (despite global shutdowns during this pandemic) has been a combination of a widely diversified client portfolio across multiple revenue channels, and a deep rooted companywide belief that “systems are the solution”. He adds “Our growth-focused culture has always been to build systems and processes that can scale as we grow, and we have worked diligently to put in place an infrastructure of the most efficient platforms coupled with the most talented people.” 

Coming in at #36 nationally, with a 16% growth rate over the last 5 years, these innovators are looking to make big waves in the remaining balance of 2020.

– Dave Lindsey, Chairman, Defenders

We are highly invested in the growth of our people we have partnered with like-minded companies through a nonprofit organization called trueU, who’s foundation is grounded in these core pillars: GROW, CONNECT, SERVE. As a member, we have opened up opportunities for all of our employees to grow through online courses, in-person classes, and book resources in areas such as personal finance, time management, servant leadership, and health & wellness, among other areas. Additionally, we select identified leaders within our organization to participate in a 6 month Leadership in Training (LIT) program that includes a home building service project in Mexico through Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a global relief organization.


It is our pledge. It is our culture. It is the voice behind our personality. We are many in strength and number, but in spirit and vision, we are one. Our culture is built around our people. Without them we have no substance; no depth. Our pledge was drafted by the people and is carried out by the same. It is founded in personal accountability, mutual respect, and sincere unity of mind. All of the aforementioned traits of Touchstone — our tone of voice, our personality, our vision — are all born from the DNA of our culture. It is ingrained into our work, into our processes, and into the very collections that we build.


We thrive on the game-changing talent that each person at Touchstone brings to the table. What do you do great? We want to hear from innovative thinkers, makers and doers from diverse backgrounds who will bring insights and talent to our team.
