MOUNT VERNON — In a move to deliver better service to his clients in Mount Vernon and Knox County, Michael R. Finneran, known as “The Ad Man,” will now represent Newton Manufacturing Co., a promotional products distributor based in Newton, Iowa. Finneran has sold promotional products for 18 years.

Finneran appreciates the loyalty that his clients have shown over the years and particularly through this transition that became official on June 1.

“I invite businesses old and new to experience a new level of customer attention and satisfaction through my association with a recognized industry leader,” said Finneran. “I have already experienced the refreshing difference, and I know they will, too.”
Newton Manufacturing Co. is ranked as one of the promotional product industry’s Top 40 distributors by the Advertising Specialties Institute. The company provides a variety of services to support representatives across the country, like Finneran, and their customers. The employee-owned organization has operated in the same location since its founding in 1909.

“Mr. Finneran has been active in this field for many years and we welcome the opportunity to have a representative of his caliber of experience and expertise on board” said Robin Hand, Newton Manufacturing Company’s vice president of sales. “We look forward to serving with him in the Mount Vernon area.”
