Dawn Jayska is a lifelong Michigan resident that started her career in the promotional products industry 30 years ago. After working in the industry for several years, she took her love of this industry, experience and commitment to service, and founded DM Promotions in 2002.
Known for exceptional client service, Dawn demonstrates a strong commitment to building and maintaining long-running business relationships; some of her key accounts date back over a decade. Her benchmark for establishing new clients is to pay special attention to understanding their needs and to exceed their service expectations.
Dawn has had the pleasure of watching her business grow and change over the last 16 years. She stays up to date with the latest product trends and draws on her vast industry knowledge in order to work closely with clients to develop and implement the right strategy.
Dawn is also member of several professional associations such as the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) as well as Michigan’s association (MiPPA). Her efforts to give back aren’t limited to the professional arena as she actively supports Angels of Hope, A Family Cancer Foundation, along with several Military Foundations. Above and beyond everything, Dawn’s greatest pride is her son, Ryan, an Army Veteran who has served two tours of duty in the Middle East and Mia, our furry office mate.
Cindy joined DM Promotions, Inc. in 2014. She provides marketing and sales support to our clients and is actively building new client relations. Before joining DMP, Cindy spent the last 10 years in the marketing department of a local credit union.
Cindy works with our clients to find just the right product to fit either their brand or current campaign they are working on. Customer service and the drive to keep customers happy is something that Cindy has always had a passion for. She understands that the level of service she provides is every bit as important as the product itself.
Outside of the office, Cindy is passionate about helping others. She is the director of the Novi Emergency Food Program where she spends time coordinating food drives, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas programs for those living in the community. When Cindy isn’t working or helping others you can usually find her on the golf course. She is still trying to perfect her game even though she has been playing for over 40+ years. She agrees with Ben Hogan when he said, “The most important shot in golf is the next one.” That is what keeps her going year after year.
Cindy lives in Novi with her husband of 28 years and has two grown children, Blake and Allie. Blake also lives in Novi while Allie found her way to Chicago. Many years ago, Cindy graduated from Central Michigan University with a B.S in B.A.
